Virile not macho

The rain cometh,

let us give thanks,

for the rain<sigh>

Been a fair day,

considering the full moon,

is just days away.

I like August,

we might still get,

a small,

heat wave,

but,

the worst is behind us,

I’m already looking,

into some fall clothes,

the students are starting,

to scout for their,

required readings,

that means I’m out of The Catcher In The Rye, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, King Lear, The Lord Of The Flies, Animal Farm etc:-)

I finished reading,

my Hemingway today,

love him,

I can imagine,

talking books,

and,

fly fishing with this guy.

I don’t fly fish but, I’d like to someday, just saying

He’s a sensitive man,

and writer,

keen observer,

of human nature,

and,

a cat lover:-)

Flair, panache,

and a,

midwestern earnestness,

about him.

Funny that some,

of my favourite writers,

have this real outdoorsy,

flavour,

about them,

me a city girl,

and all.

I’ll say it again,

Hemingway,

should not,

be dismissed,

as macho,

he is so much more,

nothing wrong with,

virility.

Oh well,

just my opinion.

I have taken,

on,

reading Montaigne,

well,

at least parts,

and I read a little,

Thoreau’s On Civil Disobedience,

a bit of an anarchist,

ole Henry David,

I’ll let you know,

what I think,

right now,

I’m tired.

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. I have to admit that I have no fondness for Hemmingway! Also, I’m still holding out hope that the heat wave will return… đŸ˜‰

  2. True, I do love that about him! When in Key West for work (sometimes I really love my job!) I visited his home there and there are cats everywhere, it was fantastic!
