Notes from Past Conversations

One of the benefits to come out of downsizing is the sorting through of things, notes, boxes, shelves, and nooks and cranies. Lots of things turn up. I have been putting the little scraps of things into my current journal if they mean something to me. Here’s a little note I made after a conversation […]

In Context: Attitudes

UPDATE 3.6.23 at 2:30 p.m. Email responses about this post make it clear to me my post was confusing.

In Context—Quotations from Revisited Books

The one highlight of going through my books and culling things out is that I’ve been able to re-read books out-of-sight for 20 or more years.  It’s like saying hello to old friends. With Delano Ames it’s a very insightful friend.

In Context—Books I’ve Been Reading

I’ve been downsizing my library, so I have been spending my free-time in the past year rereading books before I give them away. Here’s a character’s take on crime-novel reading.
