In bed with some bug ....

Made it almost all the way throught the winter without getting sick, and now I'm down with something miserable. Pfui.

So I curl up with the cats and read the old dependables, the ones that stay when others go back to Half Price Books. Anna Quindlen (essays and fiction), David McCullough, Wendell Berry (poetry), and Terry Tempest Williams to name a few. Some paperbacks so old the pages are falling out, but back on the shelf they go when I'm done for the pleasure I know they will bring the next time I open them up.

Comfort food for the mind.

Currently reading: "Blink" by Malcom Gladwell


  1. Hey, Terry! I didn't know that you had a blog, too; I am adding it to my sidebar list. How many cats do you have? I had two until December when I lost my yellow tabby, Gracie. Now there's just Cato, a solid grey male. Just started reading DEWEY about the library cat in Iowa. Do you play on ISC? My screenname there is JMSinKY.

  2. Hey John, sorry I missed this when you posted. Seven cats keeps things pretty lively around here. Cat hair (and cat barf) are the downside of the deal but well worth it. Not on ISC often, since my tolerance for being accused of cheating is pretty low. Look for charperfan.
