“Don’t be morbid,” Jordan said. “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”

I have just finished re-reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and thoroughly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t read it yet (is there anyone?) or re-reading it to those who have previously read it. It never fails to make me fall in love with Fitzgerald’s writing style.


Suggested soundtrack: Harry Nilsson’s album “A Little Touch Of Schmilsson In The Night” has the right vibes for a late-night audio session; or search out any of the music actually mentioned in the book.
