Somehow or other, I’ve squeezed in two chapters of David Denby’s Lit Up this week. I’m pretty sure it was at one in the morning. It’s fantastic. I read the first page and wanted to run downstairs (again, at one in the morning) and type the whole thing out and post it on the blog. And on Facebook. And maybe call a few English teacher friends (many of whom were probably up, grading papers). Denby’s purpose in this book is to find out if/how adolescents in the digital age can really have life-changing experiences with literature. I have some strong feelings on this subject, which so far have not been stomped on. I will let you know if that changes.
I’ve returned to my child-sized English rib sweater. It’s more blue than gray, in spite of the photo. And here’s the orange rollneck, which still needs a few ends woven in:
I think this yarn (i.e. the brand – this color and others) will be a part of my life for a long, long while.
