One comment on “Treasure Hunt

  1. Greetings, Friend Geoff,

    I enjoy each of your offerings, though I don’t always have the chance to say so. A busy summer and fall, but things beginning to slow now, at last. Thanksgiving Thursday I thought warmly of our feast at Emerson at Ashley’s in 2002.

    Have I ever told you the story of the fellow I met who told of being camped in Egypt in the 1970s doing lots of LSD and the authorities came and confiscated everything in their camp including a rare and beloved edition of the Rubayat of Omar Kayam? For years he looked for another copy of that book on several continents in his travels around the world, but unsuccessfully (this was long before Amazon.com). Seven years later in a big city in southern India, he walked into a used book store and saw on the shelves a copy of that edition. With great joy he plucked it off the shelf, opened the cover, and saw his name printed there. Now that’s a tale.

    I’ll have to get my hands on a copy of Robin Hood, illustrated by Howard Pyle, the first “big” book I ever read by myself and which I loved so much I wept when it was finished.

    Love to you and Chris,

    Garth

    PS After having lost Chris’ comb she sent me for two months, I just found it today (nice thematic closing) to shouts of glee.
