Happy All Hallow’s Eve! Tonight is the night when the border between this world and the Otherworld is thinnest, the time when those of us living in the northern hemisphere enter the season of darkness, shorter days and longer nights. Light a candle, hold good thoughts for those who have passed on, have fun and stay safe.
We are definitely into fall. Cold and rainy one day, sunny, crisp and beautiful the next. I went to the farm with some students on Wednesday and it was just glorious. I am lucky being able to spend time at a place like this! The air was so clean coming across the Sound we could see the Cascades, the Olympics and Mount Rainer very clearly. Beautiful.
I’ve only managed to post seven reviews this month though I have read twice as many books. I am not feeling pressured to review every thing I read and am only writing about those books that inspire me. This has been just fine and I am not feeling stressed about writing at all. I do wish I had more time to visit more blogs and leave more comments.
I have had a streak of reading lots of novels and seem to be entering a phase of wanting to read nonfiction and, strangely for me, short stories. Do you stick to one kind of book, read in a jumble or go through phases with your books? Do books ever call to you unexpectedly, seemingly out of nowhere?
Today I hope to read more of The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World by Wade Davis. Published by a great Canadian press, House of Anasi, the books is a collection of Davis’ 2009 Massey Lectures. How about you? What are you reading today?
