It’s one of those days that looks nice when you gaze out the window, all bright and clear as a gentle wind moves the green leaves. Then you step outside and the thick heat assaults you. On the short walk to the post office, I’m glad I’m wearing a white shirt and not a gray one. A day like today gives you sweat stains in seconds. Someone find the popsicles.
Readers, I’m attending another retreat soon for women who are blind. With travel and other obligations, I’m going to unplug and revitalize for a bit. I’ll return in July.
Read any good books lately? Listen to anything compelling? Cook anything special? Tell me about it in the comments. I always look forward to hearing from you.
See you soon,

Enjoy your time away. I have read the latest Sandman Slim book by Richard Kadrey called The Kill Society. It is very funny and entertaining. Having some familiarity with earlier books in the series helps. I’ve also read The Invisible Gorilla by Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris which is an excellent book on the way our minds work and how we don’t always see what is right in front of us. It is worth the time to check it out. Those are just two of the books I have read already this hot summer. I go through periods when I can’t get enough of reading and I’m in one of those right now. If it weren’t for work, family and other responsibilities I would probably read all day, every day. 🙂
Thank you, Casee!
Just listened to three novels in rapid succession…Abir Mukherjee, the Scottish writer’s series set in 1919 India starring investigators , English, Captain Sam Wyndham and, Harrow educated Indian, Sergeant Surrender-not Bannerjee. The two books A Rusing Man and a Necessary Evil are interesting and exotic police stories set against British colonialism in early 20th century India. Funny and full of erudite histical detail. In contrast I loved Willa Cather’s The Professor’s House. All three appeal to me because of their focus on social commentary. Happy reading and listening, Susan.
Thanks for the titles, Bridget!
Godspeed as you travel. I am currently reading a totally fun series (best read in order) that starts with Mango Bob by Bill H Myers. It is about a man who in one day gets served divorce papers, fired, and finds himself living in a tent in Arkansas. By the end of the next day a former co-worker has sold him the company’s executive motor home “cheap,” and then he finds the fine print. He has to deliver a cat named Mango Bob to her sister in Florida.
