Weekly Recap – May 22nd, 2015
Two weeks down at the gym. If my memory had somehow been wiped, my aching muscles would have no problem reminding me what I’ve been through. All told, it probably takes me an extra ten minutes to climb the stairs after leg day. But it’s the kind of pain that feels good, you know? (before you think me too weird, I’m just talking about exercise here…)
I’m a quarter of the way through 1Q84. Murakami’s an easy read at a syntax level, but there are some interesting things happening beneath the surface. I only hope he can sustain my interest for the next 800 pages.
On a whim, I started listening to Stephen King’s It on audio-book. I never realized just how seamlessly that guy can spin up metaphors. Hearing vs. reading them has really made them pop. That’s something I’ll be actively practicing as I write.
If you’re in the USA, I wish you all a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. As the son of a veteran, it’s an important reminder to me of the sacrifices soldiers are often called to make.
