Yellowstone summer. This summer I've had a Yellowstone summer.
Forty years ago, I worked in Yellowstone. For the last year and half, I've planned a return trip to Yellowstone. I took a writing class this summer and spent the summer writing about Yellowstone. I bought books on Yellowstone and spent the summer reading about Yellowstone.
And I went back to Yellowstone.
I read through my Yellowstone books again, and bookcrossed them, and released them all around Yellowstone. Maybe you found one of my Yellowstone books; maybe you read one of them.
I hope you go to Yellowstone one day. Or some place like Yellowstone. A place that changes you. And lingers with you. And calls to you. So that one day you go back.
Then you can have your own Yellowstone summer.

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.
