Just When I Thought I Was Out, They Pull Me Back In!

Last night I dreamed I went to the library and the shelves were all empty. I asked the librarian and she told me I had read all the books, thus fulfilling my quest. A dark shadow passed over the skylight, heading for Lonely Mountain.

An omen?

Lately I have more than once considered simplifying my life by eliminating all or parts of this web site. Those of you who have been around a long time may remember some site features that disappeared or merged with other features. One persistent urge I have is to eliminate the daily reading suggestion. After all, anything that has to be done daily tends to become a chore.

But then, just as I was sure I had run out of suggestions, new and exciting titles started popping up all over. Richness, variety, and even more complication in my life.

Oh well …
