Grateful to #Allah for the accumulated genius that fits on a small desk


My tutors, consulted daily now: Victor Hugo, Jacob Bronowski, Vladimir Nabokov, Ernest Hemingway, J.D. Salinger, Stan Lee, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Charles Dickens, Toni Morrison, A.S, Byatt, and William Shakespeare.

What a blessing, this convocation of masters! How do you suppose one could go about calculating the good ideas per square inch now occupying my little desk?


Watching THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY

Filled with possibility and purpose and awe. Another masterpiece from Ken Burns.
