Impulse purchases

Sometimes you don't walk into a bookstore planning to buy a book. You just feel at ease surrounded by the covers and pages. You like to open them up and read a little, almost as though you're having a conversation with a good friend. Then you read a sentence, one glorious sentence, and, two minutes later, you're walking down Ninth Street with a book in your hand.

In the dry places, men begin to dream.

    I know, right? For my summer on the farm I wanted to read some Nebraska writers. Wright Morris is one I've found to resonate with me. He is also a photographer.  

  3. He sounds like an artist. :)
