am--3 Some more miles.

I finished The Power of Myth, the book-length interview between Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell. Campbell's wisdom makes sense of life and deepens my own beliefs. I also finished Narrow Road to the Interior and Other Writings by Matsuo Basho, the great haiku master.

pm--3 Some barefoot grass loops. I had to cut it short because something about the air irritated my throat, and I was coughing like crazy.

I also finished Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon. It's a detective novel set at the end of the '60s. The PI is something like the Dude navigating his way through the quirky counterculture that is trademark Pynchon. I have a few more of his books to tackle. We'll see how the summer goes.

I finished Sing, Unburied, Sing, a much acclaimed novel by Jesmyn Ward. It picked up in the last 30 pages. I wanted more of the magical realism throughout the novel.
