Things on my mind today:

1. The Tooele County Fair and Demolition Derby, tomorrow at 6:00. I not only have tickets, I have pit passes. Hopefully, I’ll remember a camera.

2. Antoine de Saint-Exupery

3. The Library at Alexandria. Wish I knew what happened to it. Wish I knew what was in there.

4. This Proust quote, from Within a Budding Grove (I haven’t made it past Swann’s Way; I found this as part of the ongoing quote project):

“Your soul…is a dark forest. But the trees are of a particular species; they are genealogical trees.”
