Trouble Reading

Hello All!

Hope you are well.

It’s Spring, the sky is blue,

the wind is still cold,

we might get snow,


it’s Spring.

It feels good,

looking forward to,

walking around town,

this weekend,

with my girl,

maybe a museum visit,

lunch downtown.

The thing with Spring is,

even when it is,

cold, windy, rainy,

you know,

the end is near.

The women I love,

the most are both born,


my girlfriend, my best friend,

my mom was in early June,

still Spring.

I love Spring,

mostly because,

I am sick of the,

cold and dark.

Bring on the light!

I have had trouble,

reading since,

the beginning of 2023.

It took me forever to,

get through,

Mel Brooks autobiography,

which I actually liked.

I have read tons of reports,

I read the Saturday papers,


but books,

have been challenging.

This week in no time,

at all,

before bed and with,

my morning tea,

I read,

Rebent Sinner by,

Ivan Coyote,

funny, touching,

they have such a,

strong, yet gentle voice.

Can’t recommend enough,


I co founded a book club,

last year,

with some friends,

the objective was to,

add to our,

collective understanding,

of Quebec society,

through different cultural prisms.

It has been wonderful,

and is still going strong.

I was having trouble,

concentrating on reading,

so I left it in very capable hands.

One of my reading objectives,

was finally tackling,


I can’t seem to read it in,


don’t know why.

So, I am doing a,

buddy read with my,

friend, Ken,

in April.

We will be reading,

and discussing,

Swann’s Way.

I have acquired,

a Yale University annotated version.

I am only about 30 pages in,

but, I love it,

I am letting the words,

wash over me.

I might manage to read,

book 2 or 3 in,


it is my aim.

The new job is,

challenging and,

keeping me busy,

and I am,

painting pretty regularly.

Things are good,

and will get better,

as the warm weather,


George is looking forward,

to open windows,

I know how he feels.

Be well everyone.

Let me know,

what you are reading,

and take good care,

of yourselves and each other.

Later girls,
