Back to the Brain: Downtown


I often refer to the hometown as ‘the brain’. It has something to do with a Salinger story called ‘the Inverted Forest’. I write so much on the area and the people I feel it controls the writing like a brain.


Went out walking this afternoon downtown and took some pictures of the brain–just off of Main Street. I also have some pictures of bookstores I’ve visited but it might be a while before I can post those–need more time for editing. DSC00734
