Have been going back and reading the "classics". Have found that the
impression formed in my youth still holds...

Moby Dick, David Copperfield and books by Thomas Mann are still on my
list of watching paint dry would be more pleasing.

The Lord of the Rings, Franny and Zoey, and the plays of Arthur Miller
were thrilling.

Have been re-reading the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Seminars in Art that
were a gift from my parents back in the late 50's... Lots of memories

Just before bed, my favorite is an anthology of Haiku. Allow myself one
a night to ponder as I drift off.
