This is a little book about a time and a place that is timeless and placeless. You can buy this book if you like -- it would be like having a portable version of this blog to carry around -- or you can save your money and spend it on something much more worthwhile. When one writes little books, it is useful to just forget about them for a bit, and then come back to them later. Then, when you read them, it is as if someone else wrote them. I read High Desert today, and was amused to find that it has changed into a completely different book.
