Day 103 of Project 365: City of Books.

2016-04-12 17.23.02-2.jpg

After running errands downtown, FunkyPlaid and I went to Powell’s City of Books simply because we could. Now that we live only a short drive away, it will be difficult not to end up there.

Jorge Luis Borges' quotation comes to mind:

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

O, of course I bought a book: a used copy of Samuel R. Delany’s “Dhalgren”, a groovy mass-market paperback edition from 1978.

I’ve received a few other books as gifts over the past couple of weeks, but I am saving them for their own posts. (Cheating? Maybe.)

Writing from: my makeshift study in the dining-room. Listening to: “Happy Idiot” by TV on the Radio.

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
