(Kumiko's post)"Interpreter of Maladies" by Jhumpa Lahiri

The electricity is back!!!! I have been gypsying places with lights and wi-fis for almost 24 hours. I experienced an 8-day poweroutage eight years ago ( remember this episode, Seattlites?), so just one day is not a big deal...

While talking about poweroutage in a different post, my friend and I happened to have a good conversation about a book. Actually, I have witten a review about this book on my blog, but I forgot about it. It was a really good story by an Indian immigrant famale author about the night of blackout. Beautiful book. I would like to read it again.

( Kumiko's post) Christian Mcbride on I-90!!

A small road trip to Roslyn, WA with my co-Jazz critic Kenneth E Lawrence. We agreed on five stars on Christian Mcbride's albums on cloudy-misty I-90 in fall. We had lunch at the famous Roslyn Cafe.
