What we used to know, but seem to have forgotten. Of course, Superman understood immigration. He arrived here from another planet.

I may not always agree with you, but we are citizens of the same country and we share the same dream of better times.

After a good laugh. . . I will add my own version of another famous maxim for writers: How can I know what I know until I see what I write???

Ouch. I can see that, though I understand why you would imagine people had heard it before. (Might have heard it without ever seeing the word, I suppose. . . ) My problem name was "Anthea." Same reaction.

I used to live in Paris. . . now in Seattle, where they drink a lot of coffee, but, you know, the DRIVE-THROUGH espresso stand is very popular. Sigh.

You'll be dancing along by the end of this. (I think Freddy Mercury would have loved seeing him dance to Queen-- see link in story!). Enjoy!

Being a flaneur is a full-time job. I'm surprised you have time to read so much! :)

Wow. . . I've never heard of many of these writers/books. One of the things I miss about living in Europe is that it is so easy to become engulfed in American everything here. Got to climb out from under and read the world. See the world.

Oops! My brother loved my 2nd mystery, but he complained that through the whole thing he could never figure out how to pronounce the name of one of the major character.

A beautiful kitty. I love her wise and thoughtful expression. Cats bring us so much. . . it's terrible when they have to go. Take care. xox

National Kitten Day? Of course, we will celebrate. It is three years ago this month, that these two came to live with us. They still make us laugh every day.

One of the most inspiring writers I ever met. He changed my view of language, writing, and what's possible. I heard him riff on the many relationships described by the word "with" for about 20 minutes! Unforgettable.
