Ladies & Gents:
I didn't want to include the regular stuff at the end of that rather emotional post, so here we go:
"Why Can't More Dogs go to the Beach?" for The New York Times
What I'm Reading
While in Hawaii, I finished Trunk Music, then started Elizabeth Gilbert's Stern Men. Mehhhhh. It read like a warmup for The Signature of All Things, which I loved (and her best book is still that masterpiece The Last American Man. And now I'm back to Bosch with Angel's Flight (I may have skipped a book in there whoops). I also listened to the audiobook of The BFG. Oh it was lovely. Hearing the language, and a wonderful performer, made it a different kind of experience than if I'd read it myself while not streaking across Colorado.
What I'm Watching
I'm bouncing back and forth between our dear Doctor Blake and GLOW. Guys?
