“Barring love I'll take my life in large doses alone--rivers, forests, fish, grouse, mountains. Dogs.”

Now there is a loss. I'll be thinking about that one.

That sucks. That's a great quote. ( Which is pretty much a given if it's from him.) Finished Brown Dog not too long ago. I usually don't read books more than once, so if anyone would like it PM me your address.

(Edited to add: The book has been spoken for.)

our species just lost a beautiful piece of its voice.


"Perhaps swimming was dancing under the water, he thought. To swim under lily pads seeing their green slender stalks wavering as you passed, to swim under upraised logs past schools of sunfish and bluegills, to swim through reed beds past wriggling water snakes and miniature turtles, to swim in small lakes, big lakes, Lake Michigan, to swim in small farm ponds, creeks, rivers, giant rivers where one was swept along easefully by the current, to swim naked alone at night when you were nineteen and so alone you felt like you were choking every waking moment, having left home for reasons more hormonal than rational; reasons having to do with the abstraction of the future and one's questionable place in the world of the future, an absurdity not the less harsh for being so widespread."

The man who gave up his name



Good luck out there Jim.
