Brief Update


Hello reader/s:

It’s been a chaotic two months with little time to post here. I won’t bore you with the details of the chaos that’s interrupted my posting here.

In the midst of that chaos, however, I have been reading. Often reading is the only solace I have.

What have I read? Recent reads include Ray Bradbury’s Farenheit 451, along with the authorized graphic novel by Tim Hamilton. I had intended to read the graphic novel first and then read the novel itself, but I discovered when reading Hamilton’s book, I had forgotten how to read comics, how to meld graphics and narrative  together as I read.

I had to go back and read the novel to “see” what Hamilton was doing with Bradbury’s narrative. As I read, both books became enhanced. The novel seemed to gain a stronger visual element than it had before, the graphic novel’s narrative flow was better grasped by a mind used to linear narratives.

Anyhow, I’m also in the midst of reading Frank Herbert’s Dune and looking forward to reading Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War.

So, that’s it for now. Hope to write again soon.
