* We finished Rectify the night before last. It didn't necessarily go "off the rails" in Season 4 so much as it just lost power and slowed itself to a mind-numbing crawl and then a stop. The Season 3 "finale" was far better than anything that gets resolved, or not, in S4. Ah, well. Endings are hard.

* Rain has stopped, but now it's cold and very dark. A very mountain winter for us this year.

* I've decided to track my reading for 2017. I am pretty haphazard in the way I tackle my tottering to-read pile. Thus far, this year, I've read Jeff Vandermeer's impressive trilogy - The Southern Reach. And I recommend it. NOT my usual fare and typically the type of thing I shy away from because I find it existentially depresseing. Bleak sci-fi. But these books are so incredibly well-written and profoundly thought-out that I could not put them down. One after the other after the other. I do think the story is an analogy to writing? Life? Human existence in regards to the planet? I'm still pondering.




One of the amazing lines I've bookmarked.

* I've decided, once again, to grow my hair out. I want to grow out my bangs/fringe because I think it's time. We shall see if I can accomplish this.

Obligatory dog pictures. Sleepy Zoltan and Desmond sad to see me leaving.




* Completely and utterly humbled by the response to my Idol piece this week. It has lit a small flame within me and I'm beyond grateful.


When your heart is soggy with unshed tears and you stumble across an amazing hand-painted pitcher at the outlet store and begin drying out. "Jal" -gypsy name meaning wanderer.

I leave you with this astonishing line from the poet -

I don't really track my reading, either. But I think this is the year to do so!

Do you feel obligated to read this book? There isn't enough time, imo. I am always putting books down.

How are you finding the Whyte?

Ready for Spring???? I'm loving Winter!
