And lots of time so I have been re-reading them again for the first, second or third time.
Recent subjects include the Brothers Gershwin, George and Ira, one about the major league baseball season of 1908, and another one about the last month of the Civil War titled ” April 1865.”
“Bottom of the 33rd” is about the longest baseball game in history between the Rochester Red Wings and the Pawtucket Red Sox.
At this point I’m blindly pulling titles off dusty bookshelves and cracking open whatever is in my hand.
Some of these books are like looking up old friends especially when I find an odd note that I’ve written being used as bookmark.
I tend to when I get a new book write down who it’s from as in a gift and what the occasion was like So and So, Christmas, 2007. Or where I was living when I bought the book and the year like Cold Spring, 1983 and so on.
WordPress has invented some kind of new format that I”m supposed to use and like but frankly I would be happy if they just left me a blank page instead of all these choices and windows that pop up out of nowhere and disappear as quickly as they did appear before I can even grasp their relevance or significance, not that I am that interested in all these new fangled gadgets and gizmos anyway.
It’s kind of like the new FB – It looks like it’s laid out for third graders who own an iPad.
Really. See Spot Run. Run Spot Run. Spot can run.
People are idiots.
Yeesh. No wonder the level of discourse continues to spiral down the drain with such alarming… is alacrity the right word?
Standby while I look up the definition. Don’t let your mind wander – I won’t be gone long…
I’m back, well, it could work since one of the definitions is haste. Another is swiftness and yet another is dispatch.
Yeah, that’s the ticket. Maybe since I’ve just cranked out two pieces I can get in the habit or writing more when I’m not in my current state of mind which is…Beats me.
There’s plenty of subject matter but it all tends to aim in the same aimless direction and no one wants to hear about more of that with or without alacrity.
