August 8, 2014, Saturday afternoon -- Reading Stephen Grosz

On the banks of the Regent's Canal (in London, where I was on vacation -- I'm back in San Francisco now)
She's reading The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves, by Stephen Grosz.  It was supposed to be for reading on a 10-day trip to Egypt she's going on tomorrow, but she couldn't wait.  Also on her reading list for vacation is Children of Men, a science fiction book by P. D. James. 

Her favorite book is Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge A Radical History of Plants, Drugs, and Human Evolution, by Terence McKenna.
