What I'm Reading
This is a collection of short stories, all of which are about New York. I've read four of them and am enjoying the book. I did have a lovely moment this afternoon where I was sitting in my clean living room, with the washing machine and dryer going in the other room, the rain coming down hard enough to make noise, groceries having been put away and I sat in a big upholstered chair reading and I realized this was one of those moments of peace we don't get that often.
It's almost like the peace wants you to be aware of it. I remember I stopped reading and thought "What?" as if something was trying to get my attention and then I realized that everything was just calm and all was well.
