The six things I could never do without
Visits to the Jersey shore,
Whispers and/or soft undercurrents of conversation,
Bookstores, particulary the small used bookstores. It is a weakness
and a disease- if a safari hunter ever set a trap for me, he would
bait it with a pile of old books.
Red meat. (Not nearly as much as I used to, but at least once a
