Coffee Squirrel

Nothing New Under the Sun

I hate when I've got an idea and you find in your research that not only has it been DONE, but it's been done WELL. Bastards. And by the woman who wrote "Girl, Interrupted" no less. Double Bastardy Nastiness. Oh, well. I concede:

"Insight, like pain, passes quickly and can't be accurately recalled..."
- Far Afield by Susanna Kaysen.

This book is about a student's anthropological expedition to the Faroe Islands. I've been wanting to get there for a while or at least write something about them. She's even included the whale hunt! I'll just have to come at it from a different angle.

I'm at the library returning some books. Then I'm off. Eric went to get his blood drawn. He's got to have that done each week because of all the powerful fun-drugs he's taking. He doesn't mind now, though. It gives him a chance to get out and walk and have his own adventure. I'm hoping I can get some better mode of transport when it starts raining again here. For now it's been beautiful...
