Home - is where I want to be / But I guess I'm already there /I come home -
she lifted up her wings /
Guess that this must be the place...

Toujours Provence

This is the book that I picked up while we were in Providence on Valentine's Day. I hate to leave a used book store without buying something--it's so hard to keep these stores going--and I figured that even with my schedule of late, I should be able to get through this.

I've read three of his other collections, and found myself disappointed by this one. Without any sort of organizing theme, it's really just a collection of anecdotes that didn't make the cut previously, and probably shouldn't have this time; some are amusing, but too many of them touch on subjects we already know without adding luster. A "gotta get paid" book if ever I saw one. I'll keep rereading French Lessons regularly, and probably give this one a miss.
