Rain rain rain, in Seattle the rain. Fair to say that the winter months have arrived, after a stunning ten days of leaves and fall. So much water in the roads I have to wonder what all those bikers do, and am happy to not be a bus rider these days. Can’t even cross the street without either ballet-leaping from the curb to the road, or just soaking up the water in your socks, beneath your shoes that are supposed to keep it out anyways.
Maybe we are trying too hard to keep it out? It’s possible that if we just opened our arms and hugged the clouds that we might like the way it feels. This weather keeps us indoors, which for me means guitar guitar write write write. Probably good for this blog, which has been lagging for quite a while, and definitely good for the guitar – getting lots of attention.
Speaking of this blog, Danielewski’s new book, Only Revolutions, has hit the shelves. I want to know what people think of it. His first book, a masterwork, House of Leaves, is the namesake for this here blog, and I can’t begin to tell you what it’s about, only that it’s worth reading, even if it takes you years. But this new one seems like a totally different beast and I want to know if it’s one that I will like to play with. Because you know, I don’t like cats. I am a dog person, a big dog person. I dislike little dogs even more than I do cats.
I don’t often talk a lot about books here but I spend quite a bit of time reading them, so trust me on this recommendation.
