I know. I've been absent. Blame my nose. It's pollen season in River City and my nose seriously hates pollen. So, even though the weather has been stunning, I spent all of yesterday in bed nursing my sinusitis and praying for a bullet to hit me square between the eyes.
The good thing about being sick is that I catch up on reading. The bad thing for my blog is that I wasn't reading any creative non-fiction. Instead, I read 100 pages of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (for my book club). I'm not apologizing; it's a very intriguing read. But . . . the antibiotic is kicking in so I shall return soon with an update on Bruce Chatwin's travels through Argentina. Promise.
