“I like my town but I can’t say exactly what I like about it. I don’t think it’s the smell. I’m too accustomed to the monuments to want to look at them. I like certain lights, a few bridges, café terraces. I love passing through a place I haven’t seen for a long time.”
–Georges Perec, Species of Spaces and Other Pieces, “The Town”
* Even though I’m not much concerned with my manliness, even I get a tremendous kick out of cruising around The Art of Manliness.
* I have two apologies to make. First, if you’ve been waiting for a bookplate or a signature card, I’m almost caught up. By Tuesday, they should all be in the mail! I had many more requests for signature cards than I expected, so had to wait for more to arrive. (If you want a free, personalized bookplate or signature card, email me at gretchenrubin1 at gmail dot com.)
Second, a problem with Gmail meant that many of my responses with starter kits, resolutions charts, etc. didn’t go out properly. I’m going to re-send all that info. So sorry if you’ve been waiting, and sorry if you get double emails.
Arrrrgh. I remind myself to Enjoy the fun of failure.
