Anarchism

I’m finally reading Guerin’s Anarchism. I love his stuff. No Gods, No Masters is excellent, as well. In addition to this book, the cover design has always struck me. I really dig it.

Memorial.

A few weeks ago (on 27 Jan. 2010) two very different writers died.  These two were J.D. Salinger and Howard Zinn.  Both of these writers greatly inspired me over the years.

It struck me that Salinger changed the world, in many ways, by withdrawing from it.  By contrast, Zinn changed the world by actively engaging with it.

Rest in peace.

Back in the USSR…errr Pittsburgh…

Back safe and sound from our mountain holiday, I have to say that the snow and cold we got was a proper send-off for winter ’09.  Of course there still might be a bit more lurking, but I tend to think we’re done with snowstorms this time around.  Bring on the rainy months!  WOO HOO!

I am currently re-reading Bill Bryson’s book A Short History of Nearly Everything.  It’s somewhat hard to detail, but reading the book is very inspirational to me.  It fits, somehow quite closely to the same feelings I had after reading Julia Sweeney’s Letting Go of God.  I highly recommend both books for some good springtime reading! 

Check ’em out!
