Quotidian for Dverse

Sure, I’m a patron of the library and used bookstores too.  I even buy extra copies of books I love, and already own,  like Denial of Death; Consilience; Illusions, Who Dies and The Individual and His  Dreams.  But  fate  has to bring us together again via yard sales or  give-aways.  Buying more than one new copy at a time would be tacky. I take so much solace from books that it’s sorta frightening to think of being totally bereft of them.  I never  claimed to be  high-brow but do try not to be tacky.  And though I’m blushing now to admit it, there are no classics at bedtime, but only suspense/mysteries/who dunnits and other escape reading.  What I have to escape from is the theme of another missive.  But I know and do reckon that some of my sleep problems stem from reading through the night, for upon awakening I panic, not knowing if it’s last night or tomorrow morning.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

  2. Nan, I’ll email you the steps you have to follow to link up to Dverse’s various posts. Love your haiku. It’s been a while since I read through the night. There was a time I loved the uncertainty of which day it is or is it night or the morning after?
