I used to hide out in the San Marino Public Library. The library was only three blocks from my house. It was cool and quiet.
Unlike my house.
I would go to the card catalogue, slide open a narrow drawer, and flip to a random card. Pick a card. Any card. Then I’d go to find the matching Dewey Decimal notation imprinted on the spine of the book.
Rarely did I come back with the book I set out to find. Instead, a title, a wraparound image on a spine, something would make me stop and pull the book from the shelf.
My blog is what’s happened to my childhood ‘reading roulette’ – the Internet. Every day (well, not really but you know) I search for something that has happened on the very same day in history.
This might seem noble and mature. It’s not. I am doing anything but finish a novel I started five years ago.
Stay tuned. And thank you for meandering with me.
