first of all, mirror project #2. what fun it is finding shiny things!
secondly, due to not feeling real well yesterday, i found that laying on the couch reading a book was more my speed than the frenetic pace of reading some blogs and fixing others and, you know, living on internet time. so. what did we have in the house that i hadn’t read yet? hearts in atlantis. interesting in that this was the book stephen king was writing at the time of his accident, and it’s really two different books, divided into before/after the accident: the first part with the usual paranormal suspects and references to the gunslinger/dark tower series, the second, picking up a thin thread from the first book and going off into the sixties and the anti-war movement, in a normal world now free of creepy car-monsters and aliens in yellow coats. the whole thing chock-full of 60’s references and me completely swept up in that period of history, which i experienced as a person too young to grasp it all, but all of it completely familiar.
i expect to be done within a few hours here, and things shall return to normal internet-wise, but right now i’m off to hang out in the sixties some more. fierce nostalgia. fierce.
