Either everybody counts or nobody counts… this is the principle that makes Michael Connelly’s books so dear to me. Obviously, to me, that labels me as a commie, a Democrat, a lefty… but I really don’t care… It’s your issue, not mine. My job is to be true to my principles.
I like crime novels. Most of them are clean and most of them go into the details that allow me to be forced to ride on the surface, to turn the page too eagerly, but stay on the page I am on: savoring it. Rare to find books like that.
No FOMO, I am where I am supposed to be. No desire to be anywhere else, doing anything other than what I am doing.
Priceless. Continue reading “Does everybody really count, or is that a seductive slogan?”
I get affirmation from wherever, when I am on the right path… here it goes: I just finished this article, and here is my Rob Brezsny horoscope…

It snowed yesterday and last night. Everything is covered with two inches of snow, the trees that haven’t lost their leaves, the cars, the street, my deck that I can see from my computer.
This is not the first time snow comes this early. And for most people in Syracuse, where I live, it is a snooow issue… not good! not good! Time to move to Florida! lol.
The snow comes from Lake Ontario that is an hour North from here as the crow flies. Whenever it is mild first and then the wind turns to arctic… meaning coming from the North, snow comes with it.
