quest for the lost city

It is 1:20 PM Wednesday afternoon in my modern life. It is not a warm day. A very cloudy day outside. I did find the courage to leave our house this morning to visit thrift stores and to go get office supplies.

I found these used books today at thrift stores to add to our book collection-

"Desert Notes: Reflections In The Eye Of A Raven" & "River Notes: The Dance Of Herons" one paperback Nature writings by Barry Lopez (One of my favorite books was written by Lopez titled, "Arctic Dreams".)
