Not around . . .

The “cold” turned into a multi-week ordeal, and I have been off routine since finding myself with a gigantic carbuncle over the weekend that landed me in the reception area of the walk-in clinic on the 19th. Not fun!

I’ve read a lot of books, these past three weeks, and read just parts of almost as many. Trouble concentrating, or trouble picking out series romances and cozy mysteries. I did another search on Sharon Shinn on Thursday and discovered that she’s got a new-to-me book (Nov. 2015) out in Nook format: Jeweled Fire. I enjoyed the first two books in the series and look forward to starting this one. I do quite love her books, my favorites being mostly from the Samaria series.

On Thursday, I read two science fiction books that I enjoyed. Triad  and Infinity’s Web, both by Sheila Finch. Off the beaten path, as far as my recent reading, and intriguing. I was especially taken by Infinity’s Web.

As far as replacing paperbacks that I want to reread, I’ve gotten both The Complete Arrows Trilogy and The Last Herald-Mage Trilogy.

Rereads: Volume #2 of Fukuyama’s Political Order books, Sadder than Water (heady poetry), and William Least Heat-Moon’s PrairyErth: A Deep Map.

I should have tried to get back to sleep, when I woke up at 2:10 a.m. Instead I have put Aloe Vera gel on my calluses. Brushed my teeth. And determined that I can no longer see clearly enough to write anything.

“Not Right Now”

No, I cannot come with you.
A poem is writing itself on my heart,
and I must wait to learn if it ever ends.
