Nighthawks at Denny's in Santa Fe

Wandering around the Ped Mall in downtown Iowa City during Art's Festval this weekend.

I made it back home Friday. It was good to see everyone out and about on Friday night for the live music and a birthday gathering.

I bought a copy of Don DeLillo's Falling Man in DFW airport. Not sure if I can recommend reading a 9/11 novel on a plane but I was out of books to read and it caught my eye. I am enjoying it more than his previous two efforts so far. I finished Murakami's After Dark and recommend that as well. I found it as a cross between his ultra-surreal and more linear narratives, a distilled but more accessible version of his Hard Boiled Wonderland & The End of the World.

No more new book purchases for me for a while. I need to catch up on backlog of reading material piled up around the house.

I tried to wander around downtown on Saturday, but there were way too many people for me. It was good to see you on Friday, though.
