    We’ve never met though I probably ready 10% of your postings. The first one I read was about your soccer game that JRfinger tweeted and publicized. Since then, there is a bit of adventure to open up your next post! So your “one to grow on” made me think of a line in the English Patient. The last page of chapter IX. It goes “we die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves. I wish for all of this to be marked on my body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography- to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience. All I desired was to walk upon such an earth that had no maps.” Happy new year and good luck on the cabana boy
