Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Osman's Dream

I am 100 pages into the book "Osman's Dream. The History of the Ottoman Empire. From 1300 to 1923."  By Caroline Finkel. Chris had been reading this book for some time. Bloggers often post what they are reading. Chris posted this book for some time. It was in his backpack when he passed away.  The book is of interest in these times of Christian/Muslim interaction. I am reading the pages that Chris had just read. Chris underlined some passages of text. Reading the book and looking at the underlined text is spending time with Chris.

Chris passed away four weeks ago today. It is getting easier.
