    i read a few of the passages i could find and i'm intrigued, im gonna pick it up at the library. thank you for the recommendation, most turn out to be duds.

    "Below him was the multitudinous river, and, where the rock had parted it around him, big-grained vapor rose. The mini-molecules of water left in the wake of his line made momentary loops of gossamer, disappearing so rapidly in the rising big-grained vapor that they had to be retained in memory to be visualized as loops. The spray emanating from him was finer-grained still and enclosed him in a halo of himself. The halo of himself was always there and always disappearing, as if he were candlelight flickering about three inches from himself. The images of himself and his line kept disappearing into the rising vapors of the river, which continually circles to the tops of the cliffs where, after becoming a wreath in the wind, they became rays of the sun."

    "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

    I am haunted by waters."

    I have this book and I consider it like my Bible. It's mindblowing.

    I own it as well- it's like Good Eats in book form!

    and I thought you'd like A River Runs Through It, Jake- I read an interview with Norman McLean once- he talked about hands in such a lovely way - it's a shame he never started writing until he was in his mid 70s

    and FM- have you ever read any short stories by Damon Runyan? I think you'd like them somehow! Some were turned into radio shows- here are some of them

    I haven't, but I will check them out. And you should know that if I agree to read fiction, I must take the recommendation very seriously
