Time out in book world… the importance of eclectic-ism

photo snapped this Labor Day at the Missouri Botanical Garden of Chihuly’s “onions.” (actually, I don’t know what he calls them, but they’re awesome). He left them behind after his art installation three years ago.
I take a picture at this Garden pond every year. This year features the lily pad.
I’m gonna read in a minute.
Headed for the wing chair.
Going for total escapism, to float, if you will in reading-ness.
It’s a $7.99 paperback, it’s Charlaine Harris’s DEAD UNTIL DARK.
Nory (aka Laylou and Nora) recommended it. “Come on, you have to buy this. You need to take a break. It’s different. You’ll like it.” She’s so sincere, she was getting out her money to buy it for me.
“Nah, I got this,” I said, always ready to get a book (if I can) and take it home without a due date attached to it.
Nory is apparently on her 4th or 5th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Egads, Sookie Stackhouse. Yes, she has two features. One of them is being able to hear other people’s thoughts. Guess what the other one(s) is?
Anyway, I”m reading it.
I think I’d rather watch True Blood ( or is TruBlood?), the cable series apparently based on the books. (sigh)
Then I’m going over to Anne Lamott’s TRAVELING MERCIES for some laughs, thoughtfulness and gentle activism.
