    Horror - As the days get shorter

    @Mandyrecently posed a query to a group of us regarding ghost stories for her book club. My recommendations: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/may/16/top-10-unconventional-ghosts-in-literature From this list, Daphne du Maurier’s titular character of Rebecca; the Misfit in O’Connor’s A Good Man is Hard to Find; Beloved in Toni Morrison’s book of the same name. Also possibilities from my own list: Henry James, The Turn of the Screw; George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo; Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward; so much by Nathaniel Hawthorne, including the House of the Seven Gables; almost anything by Edgar Allan Poe; Hamlet.

    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    Less, which won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. It follows writer, Arthur Less, who embarks on a worldwide literary tour to escape the impending wedding of his former lover, Freddie and celebrates his 50th birthday along the way. Author Andrew Sean Greer said, "the only way to write about [being gay and aging] is to make it a funny story. And I found that by making fun of myself, I could actually get closer to real emotion – closer to what I wanted in my more serious books."

    Libraries in fiction

    The library in Un Dun Lun would be it for me; it exemplifies Foucault's notion of heterotopia.

    NBA Offseason: From KD to AD

    It certainly has been talked about if the Wizards will trade Beal for the 4th round pick and future picks. It would be advantageous for the Pels. If that does not happen, I hope they get another high caliber veteran player, or they still with the 4th pick and draft DeAndre Hunter.

    Second Quarter 2019 Reading

    We Cast A Shadow by Maurice Carlos Ruffin, NO attorney and auteur extraordinaire (also a helluva a nice person). Linking an NPR review of his book (beware of spoilers if you click the link). https://www.npr.org/2019/01/30/689747338/in-we-cast-a-shadow-the-horrors-are-close-to-home

    NBA Offseason: From KD to AD

    The Lakers fans on r/nba seem ecstatic about acquiring AD, but acknowledge they will be interested to how their former young core develops. The Pels need a veteran with shooting skills, so more trades may occur with their acquired #4 pick. Since I am a Warriors fan, I’m still searching for updates on their injuries; I did read that Draymond flew to NY to talk to Kevin Durant. I haven’t heard much after Klay Thompson’s torn ACL. There are some Lakers fans who are scared they gave away too much, but that fear is suppressed by their excitement over AD’s acquisition.

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    I have seen the other responses to this, but I have a different take on it. This woman seems to like you a great deal. While you may be incredibly busy (and I know you are), she may not be, and that can lead to obsessing about the relationship, especially if she cares for you. She may feel like she is on a roller coaster of emotions because to her, you may seem distant a lot of the time. If both of you can try to see things from the other’s perspective, it may help.
