Valentine's Day

Day 5...and no Internet access at home. There's always something...

So I wanted to tell you that Douglas is reading a biography of Jack Kerouac, who is always popular, so popular that we keep him on a little shelf right by the front door. Well, Dharma Bums, etc. stay there a while, but On the Road always disappears immediately.

And, likewise, forget finding a copy of Catcher in the Rye, especially the red paperback that used to be so readily available and in all high school classrooms!

And to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day. I hope to resume the project on this daily basis, but the Internet problem seems bound to foil me.

A woman was reading a book at the terribly crowded breakfast place this morning, full of Valentine's parties...and shortly thereafter church parties. I resisted the urge to go over and ask her what she was reading!
