Business trips slowed me down, but I’m almost through the Doors of Perception.  It seems like it was written by a very smart person with eclectic but limited knowledge, forcing an idea to fit into an experience.

Just finishing up the 33 & 1/3 book about Math Rock. Next up will be another book by Mircea Cartarescu, Blinding. Once more into the breech!

Invisible Man.  I think I read this in high school or college, but I can’t remember a thing about it.  Other than that it is about a man who is invisible.

Nothing but a little bit of the Acts of the Apostles from time to time.  I made the very stupid mistake of purchasing the entire series of The Walking Dead on sale, followed by the dumber decision of watching the first couple of episodes.  I’m on season 7 now.  I also decided to take an 8 hour course on the Assyrians (who were the original evil empire, by the way).  Apparently, "just the tip” doesn’t work for much in life.

Been listening to a lot of podcasts on stuff I read a long time ago by Jorge Luis Borges (El Aleph, Garden of Bifurcating Paths) , Garcia Marquez (100 years of Solitude, Death Foretold,  Love in Cholera), Isabel Allende (Two Words) and other Latin writers.  Some in English, some in Spanish.

If you haven't already, you should read/listen to some Jorge Amado; The Two Deaths of Quincas Wateryell was a good one, and quite brief (if that helps!). Machado de Assis is another good author.

Thanks for the tip!
