We’ve been home a week since our sejour in Cali.
And not a single post between then and now!
If I ran for president, I would put 3-day weekends and 30-hour days on my platform. Those extra hours in the day will be for sleep – I believe this nation is sleep-deprived – and for attending to and taking time out for, one’s arts and hobbies.
Has anyone read the 4-Hour Workweek? Wonder if it’s a lot of blather.
Meanwhile, a little coffee and conversation with HM, a little time in the garden…getting caught up on Zen time.
HOME by Julie Andrews (please tell me she has a ghostwriter or, is she also an excellent writer on top of everything else? sheesh)
THE PINE BARRENS by John McPhee (and I lived in Jersey and had no idea of the region…’til I saw THE SOPRANOS)
BEACHCOMBERS by Nancy Thayer (because it’s summer and I saw this book on the shelf and it looked…summery)
THE BLISS OF BLOGGING forgot author (sorry!!!) but need to read it since still, after several years, I’m trying to kickstart this blog)
FREEDOM by J Franzen (yes, I’m still reading it…egads, it’s long, longer than other long books. OK, and I think I have writer’s envy, too.)
A stack of NEW YORKER mags, 2 VOGUES (july & august) and the 2 recent issues of POETS & WRITERS magazine.
ok, wait, was I complaining about time?
