I don’t know what I am doing anymore but things are getting organized. I read the beginning of Italo Calvino‘s If on a winters night a traveler. I’m not sure what kind of writer Calvino is. He seems to be extremely in the world spiritually . the other books of his I have are fantastic parable like things. I feel happy when I read him. He is probably one of those transcendent writers who make it all up. But not in a hobbit type alternate reality where things are just different on the surface. I finished a biography of Charles Lindbergh last week and even though his political views were really pretty regrettable he seemed to live a life that was always actually intellectual a opposed to The “Intellectuals” who treat there intellect like something they are in possession of.
