i never tire of gillian welch. i just love having her in the background when i’m working. i wish she’d go on tour…yesterday was a windy, rainy day – cyclones of leaves whirling. rode the rails through the underbelly of manhattan and spotted two gals with about 15-20 pages left to read of their books. i felt excited for them. i bet they were as removed from their present as can be imagined…trying to read as fast as their brains and eyes could process before their stop came. the one good thing about the subway is you have to sit for a bit. gives you a good chunk of time to read.
