I got back from the Berkshires last Friday, but extended my vacation all through the weekend. It was all very relaxing, though I didn’t read as many books as I expected. Nonetheless, we had a great time out there, eating and drinking at many great restaurants, reading by a beautiful waterfall, hiking around the same woods as Thoreau once did. I have to also mentioned the fantastic Jenny Holzer exhibit at MASS MoCA, which was truly unusual and thought provoking.
Tomorrow I turn 33 years old. It’s a strange number. According to Wikipedia, “this number has the meaning that good will always triumph over evil”. Hah! Maybe this is my year. Maybe it means Obama will win the election in November!
Our regional trade show starts on Thursday and continues through Saturday. I’ll be there, not near a computer, so that means another week of silence. Monday life returns to a more normal pace finally. So expect more posting and commentary on books then.
