…and time to turn some pages. Books are collecting on my night stand, coffee table, and dining room. Some started, some remain in wait.

A simple list, in no particular order, for you to decipher:

Foxcatcher, by Mark Schultz (with David Thomas) – Reading this to get the background on the film, which I’ve seen several times. Simply, almost naively written (I blame the ghost writer), an intriguing look into wrestling champion Mark Schultz, his brother Dave, and the odd, and eventually deadly, relationship with John du Pont at Foxcatcher Farm.

Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees, by Lawrence Weschler – the life of contemporary artist Robert Irwin, his philosophy, and his approach to artistic creation.

The Book of Life, by J. Krishnamurti – the book that had a tremendous impact on Mark Shultz in both his professional and personal life. Further research…

Notes for a Memoir: On Isaac Asimov, Life, and Writing, by Janet Jeppson Asimov – a personal and insightful memoir of Asimov written by his wife. Taken in doses of only a few pages at a time leaving some thinking room for myself…

Portrait of an Artist by Laurie Lisle – a biography of Georgia O’Keeffe whose life and artwork have always held a fascination for me. This one was bookmarked about a quarter of the way thru when I packed it away for our move. Just rediscovered…

Pain Erasure, by Bonnie Prudden – Trigger point therapy for back and neck problems. This one has been my go-to for many years. Need it again…working on a self-help tool…

What can I say…about as eclectic as my eating habits…
