I read "The Aosawa Murders" a few weeks ago and can't get it out of my head.

I love this mural on the side of a Harlem building; I see it every morning from the train

Been there. Does the RX company have a special program for folks whose insurance won't cover the drug? That is how I get one of mine.

I think I'd rather know afterward, too. I'm not a worrier by nature — except when my kids are involved.

Yes. That passage. You can feel that cold knife of panic just plunge through him.

And you were just laying it out so plainly from your own personal perspective that it really made me stop and think about being fulfilled and happy and curious, and wonder whether I've let fear hold me back from things (or whether my fears have held my kids back from things).

Well, I kept reading it as mom, you know? My kids are grown now, and though they aren't explorers, they've certainly taken their share of risks, sometimes scary ones. I try not to think about it — and there Dial was, *having* to think about it.

...but she also made me see the book from a different perspective, which I really appreciated. (2/2)

I love everything about her review. I remember how my breath kept catching in my throat when I was reading the book (especially the passage where Dial realizes he's miscalculated how long his son had planned to be gone). Blair captured that emotion and intensity... (1/2)

"So much in the wilderness is beyond control. ... You can do everything right and die. You can do it all wrong and survive," writes in her beautiful review of “The Adventurer’s Son,” a memoir by the explorer Roman Dial.

I read Roman Dial’s “The Adventurer’s Son” for and found it gorgeous and disturbing, at once a love letter and a hard look at the kind of risks all outdoorspeople negotiate. You can do everything right and die. You can do it all wrong and survive.

Years ago, woman brought an emotional support mini-pig on a flight I was on from Raleigh-Durham to NYC. Thankfully I was not sitting anywhere near her, because the pig's diaper leaked and things got...bad.
