Did any of you happen to catch the interview with Peter Sis on NPR Wednesday afternoon? His new book is so beautiful. Can you imagine the time and skill it must have taken to pen every one of those tiny little birds? It’s perhaps another book I will rationalize because I know that DASHIELL will truly enjoy it.
Also, it makes me realize that the paltry $100 I donate to KCRW each year is no where near enough, when I admit that I learn almost everything I know about news and music and culture by listening to 89.9 and reading NPR.org. (I am realistic with my time and needs, after all). I even bought a new album featuring the music of William Byrd, after hearing about it while running errands the other day.
The only thing I don’t rely on NPR for is an update on the Republican primary race. That comes directly from Jon Stewart, of course.
