Tarmac ribbons criss-crossing the landscape, dusty back roads twisting between the cool shadows of ancient pines, and less traveled pathways connecting present to past, all I wander, seeking, seeing, with my keyboard and camera capturing scenes and stories to share with you.

Now in its fifth year, this venue has become an important part of my life, a place where I can express my thoughts and feelings about the things I see and do, hoping the process brings me a bit closer to friends and family who enjoy sharing my sometimes chaotic and often nonlinear observations and ideas. A journal, I suppose, but one with which I find pleasure in thinking others are alongside me on my journey.

RE-BOOKS WANDERABOUT

... after downloading and printing my tax forms (three cheers for me, figuring out how to do it from my ipad; to apple computer, inc., a great big raspberry for making what should be simple either difficult, seemingly occult, or an extra expense) i decided to see if i could start-to-finish create and post a journal entry using only the ipad ...

... so, let's go for a little literary wanderabout ...

... re-books is not only "where everybody knows your name," but also a place where there's bound to be a book calling it out to you ...


... like to be rich ... ??? ... there's a zillion dollars worth of gold buried in northern maine just waiting for the first person knows how to dig ... we at re-books know about this since we published the book ...

 
... perhaps he came to re-books looking for a copy of theodore sturgeon's "a touch of strange" ...

 
... the crew cleaning and repairing after the great deluge boxed up the undamaged books ... $20/box ... fantasy/science fiction, nautical and aviation, horror, mystery and more, a deal well worth investigating ...

 

... need help, ask one of re-books' friendly salesbears ...

 

... the wikipedia of another age ...

 

... yes, re-books welcomes all ...

 
... none of those obnoxious "don't touch the merchandise" signs here, at re-books user testing is encouraged ...

 

... some come to re-books because it's a great place to think ...

 
... "well," said stuart, "a misspelled word is an abomination in the sight of everyone" ...

 

... you're invited to come to re-books for your own little wanderabout ...
