Creative Non-Fiction Short Stories. :) Travel, Oldsters, Love, and Compassion.

enjoy this particular day

One never took the time to savor the details; one said: another day, but always with the hidden knowledge that each day was unique and final, that there never would be a return, another time.

-Paul Bowles. The Sheltering Sky.

(Read this book as a sophomore in college. Checked it out of the same college library 4 years later and found a note to myself inside.)

    Nothing too exciting, sadly. Though, it does speak to the fact that people don’t check out the same books that I do. So I decided to teach this book, so at least 25 students would get a chance to delight in it. 🙂
