Notes from the sickbed


Apologies for no post today: out of nowhere I’ve caught an awful cold, and I feel enfeebled, weak as a kitten, and not a little peevish.  Cheer me up in the comments by sharing what you’ve read or watched lately that you’ve really liked, and/or what you’re most excited about doing this weekend.

Should we have another week of requests?

I avoided the entire neighborhood of Soho for two years after having my heart badly broken by one of its inhabitants.  I moved across the country to Seattle after college to be with the Outward Bound instructor I’d taken up with in Joshua Tree on one of their trips. I traveled to Chicago when my grandmother died, and on the eve of her funeral, hooked up with an old college flame. And, most recently, I took up bicycling in New York City. Please top me.
