Sorry I've been so long out of touch. I got back from Lima last week. Three days later, I went to Los Angeles. (It looks like I AM going to be joining the road cast of Les Miz. Probably as Colette.) Now I'm back. I have posts in the hopper about Lima, The Hold Steady (who I saw in Houston last week), Los Angeles, the Dali Lama, The Song of Solomon, and term-life insurance.
Some of them, anyway.
Next week I'm going to have to pack my apartment and move to Los Angeles. So, blogging may be light. I'm hoping before I leave to at least post about Peru. I also have some thoughts on Cormac McCarthy's new novel (Gravity's Rainbow), but I'm finding it hard to get them down in a coherent manner. Rest assured, however, that the thoughts, such as they are, are devastatingly and life-alteringly brilliant. (My keyboard bursts into flames whenever I try to type them).
Oh, and I've played a little poker.
A very little.
Or, as they say in Peru, "a muy little."
Spanish! It's fun.
