To Alaska with Absalom, Absalom!

In a few days, I am scheduled to take a long journey from New England
to Seattle to British Columbia to Alaska, with a side trip to the
Yukon.

As you might imagine, what to bring is becoming more and more a
question that needs answering. Having a geek centered mind, the laptop,
blackberry, iPod and M50 Nikon are a given. Then there is the clothing.
For ten days, eight dress shirts, a few sweaters, slacks and a light
winter coat are recommended.

For reading I am bringing Strunk & White, Zinser’s On Writing Well and William Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom!. I have been looking for Richard Halliburton‘s Complete Book of Marvels, but have had little luck.  Perhaps the library might have it.

Tomorrow
is Mother’s Day. Being an orphan boy myself, you would think it would
be a sad day. Not so much.  With a wife and son, my own mother has
faded into the past where she has long resided. Now, where am I getting
flowers at this late stage in the game?
