Reading Choices January 2, 2017

I’m forever working through my pile of unread books.  The pile of unreads grows faster than the pile of reads.  Makes me think of the Walt Disney  film Fantasia back in the 1940’s.  One of the first films I ever saw – probably in the University Theater in Harvard Square.    The water kept coming despite Mickey Mouse frantically trying to keep ahead of the deluge.

It had lurked near the bottom of my unreads pile for about a year.

 

Little Brown Birds

I love the little brown birds that come and go from my deck.  They remind me of Kenya and the many trips we made to the game park near Nairobi.  I had a friend who would say “just another little brown job” – disappointing when we were on the lookout for something a bit rarer.
