Here’s hoping. Monday was wild for me. A dear friend had a stroke. Some things on the job have become a bit of a cl*sterf*ck. My mom was in a “bored” mood. I had a meeting. If I had a hammer. I’d hammer in the morning. Did I just age myself here?
So. Since I got nothing of value and Esau Marie has been asleep for at least 20 of every 24 hours since Friday, I’m gonna give it a go. Here’s Ten on Tuesday:
My 10 Favorite Books (in no particular order):
1. As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner
2. The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
3. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
4. Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown
5. Absalom! Absalom! by William Faulkner
6. Mississippi Solo: A River Quest by Eddie Harris
7. The Old Testament by assorted authors
8. Huck Finn by Mark Twain
9. All the King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren
10. Harry Potter (the entire series) by J. K. Rowling
That was an interesting and satisfying exercise. I have a southern bent to my likes, don’t I? William Faulkner lived behind my French teacher’s aunt in Mississippi when I was a kid. She told stories that would make you cringe, but I found him a fascinating and eccentric person. I wish we allowed and encouraged more eccentricity these days. Homogenization only works for milk.
On this note, I will leave you with balance. Unusual for this blog, I know. Since my favorite books lean decidedly south, you get Neil Young with his “Southern Man”. You may discuss among yourselves;-)
Have a good one!
