From 30-below to melting, overnight ... wow.
Change. It can happen fast.

It was raining last night as I lay propped up in bed, finishing a biography of author Somerset Maugham. It was written by a University of Saskatchewan professor. I'd like to recommend it, but I can't; the writer didn't make Maugham come alive. Or is that asking too much? I don't think so. Others have managed to do it. Not regarding Maugham, mind you; yet. But I probably won't look for more about the man and I don't remember what it was that prompted me to order the book from the library.

Next: The Inconvenient Indian, by Thomas King.  Usually anything written about First Nations history with the tidal wave of European greed, arrogance, dishonesty, and inhumanity pisses me off. But I want to know what King has to say.

On my way home after work one evening I stopped to snap a photo of this lovely beast.
