Christmas has passed, the snow hasn’t
Snow came to visit us for Christmas but I understand it was pretty much making the rounds all over the Mid-west.
Thankfully our travel yesterday was safe. It was all local but the highways were still challenging. Visited my son & had a Christmas meal with him at his house. Cathy cooked a scrumptious lunch.
So we saw a son and on of our daughters. The other two daughters were out of the area but at least they were able to see each other.
It’s so quiet quiet here today I can hear myself thinking. Ok, maybe an exaggeration but not much. Actually I was thinking about some of the books I read this year. There were some impressive poetry collections published.
By far most of the books I read this year were in fact poetry books. Otherwise biographies and some political non-fiction and baseball non-fiction. I’m wondering if I would best be described as a narrowly focused reader or a poets dream come true?
