all things shining

In 151, bus on May 24, 2011 at 7:42 am

attractive man reading a book I thought was titled all things singing, but no, it was shining. then I googled it and saw 'western literature' and got happy and then I saw a review talking about secularism and us living in an age of "nihilistic indecision" and using western lit to inform our lives...

storm front

In downtown, sidewalk on May 24, 2011 at 7:37 am

man with dredlocks reading the dresden files on the street. I wanted to high five him because 1. high fives are great and 2. the dresden files put me to sleep every night. if I'm not mistaken, storm front involves harry dresden - wizard - riding sue the t rex. basically, it's the best story of all time
