Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Breathing It In
It's amazing how much better I feel in this climate. The time leading up to the Monsoon is really hard on me. I'm so glad I missed that dust storm the other day, which, as my father pointed out when reading a New York Times tidbit on it, has an Arabic name. No wonder Al Qaeda liked Arizona so much. At any rate, I'm going to go absorb some more cool, salty air for my lungs. I'm starting to feel like one of those characters in a nineteenth-century narrative that is always traveling to the sea to recover from consumption. If only my ATM card were doing the same. . .

19thC heroine, yes. But also an 18thC man of feeling!

Glad you're having such a good CA trip.

On to yet more celebratory "recoveries" of my own...

Indeed. Be sure to wear a seat-belt!

I'm so happy to hear you are on holiday! And more importantly, glad to hear those lungs are feeling healthy. Love the comparison to consumption. I channeled my poppie while reading this--he used to talk about the 'sumption. Oohh! or maybe it was sumpthin like the tree he clumbed. Can you tell I'm a little looney over here! Having a nice night and wishing you the same.
