It's so dark...


I don't know what to do with myself! It was dark out here by 3pm today, it's so bizarre...

Anyway, I wanted to share this book, A Freewheelin' Time. If you're looking for a good read this fall that is entertaining, moving and real, this is a great read! If you're into Bob Dylan it's specially great, but even as just a memoar it's really interesting. It's written by Susan Rotolo, who dated Dylan when they were both very young, and her life in the Village in the sixties. What a time! It talks a lot about the changes that were going in the US and the rest of the world back then, and how it felt to grow up in the middle of that. It's also a New York gem, it's like time traveling to how the city used to be once upon a time. As a woman, one can definitely identify with her story a lot.

i know what you mean about the dark...i keep reminding myself that it's like this EVERY year so i should be used to it - but clearly i'm not. i want to go to bed every night at five!
