You know what? This has not been my favorite season. (And the hits still keep comin’!) But here’s the thing— ultimately I know what things I can control and what things I can’t. And what I could not control during this trip to Big Bend with my friend D. was this person who kept stomping his brakes in front of us on a curvy basin road in the rain. Are you ready now? Tale my hand and let us go together into this story. Read on, Reader!
Read of the Week
This week I’m reading Kim Dana Kupperman’s essay collection, I Just Lately Started Buying Wings: Missives from the Other Side of Silence. Kupperman’s prose style is clean without being spare; detailed but not embellished; and fascinating as all get out. (Look, I inhaled 60 pages last night in what felt like a single breath. She’s so good that you’ll lose track of time, darlin’.) Hope you’ll consider checking out this book.
