Review: My Name Is Asher Lev

October 31, 2008

As in painting, so in words, there is a power that transcends our experience of life, a power that can doubly lift us to the sacred and mock us for the profane. So it is with Asher Lev.

My Name Is Asher Lev was one of the few works from high school English that I looked back upon fondly. For years my searches through Half Price Books have been surprisingly without reward, but at last I thought simply to borrow a copy.

Dino Valley

October 17, 2008

"Vacationing" in the Dallas area, Dinosaur Valley State Park near Glen Rose, TX, is one of the few decent public properties around. Started driving out there on Tuesday, nearly called it a rain-out, but after heavenly fajitas at Taco Cabana, felt great and pushed through the storms. The river was surprisingly low but the hiking was good. My camera batteries were freshly charged, but apparently that doesn't mean much anymore — only managed to get about 10 photos in before it conked out.
