It’s hard to get e. e. cummings off my mind today: up so many floating bells down–I think that was him. Many living writers I would love to meet, but I think my favorite is Donald Westlake. He has give me many hours of pleasure. His books are wildly humorous in a subdued way, if that is possible. I haven’t read them all yet, but I am working on it. But I am in a “floating bells” mood today. HOT and DRY here in Hellhole Swamp. Can’t wait for it to rain.
