Voyage of a Summer Sun: Canoeing the Columbia River by Robin Cody
Voyage of a Summer Sun: Canoeing the Columbia River

geofuhfuhtaylor, September 8, 2013

Winter is coming. All Oregonians get to feel it in their bones, between their toes where fungus grows, and worst of all, between their ears. Those who know only sunny weather will never understand the inner joy of Oregon's own rain, unless they read a lot of Poe, Kafka, or possibly Markham, the poet who wrote the rollicking lines of "The Man With a Hoe." O. Henry said they were rollicking, and he was funny. But perhaps he was using irony for comic effect.

Winter is coming. Perhaps this is your first winter here. Good, you're reading this just in time. You probably have changed lightbulbs and planned vacations to foreign climes such as Hawaii and Los Angeles. Good so far, but what about your brain? Oh. Do you intend to feed your pets this winter? Shower the house plants with more full-spectrum lumens? Love your own brain any less? It'll get dark in there. Sorry to see a few good marbles go, right out the memory hole along with the other three-letter word for Sol.

OR, alternatively, Plan B for the aforementioned organ of sex and sanity, you could buy this book. Mr. Cody has done all the work. Pour a hot bath, a cup of your favorite beverage, torch a Cuban or Jamaican cigar, and READ THIS BOOK for the very first time. I actually envy you. Not your naivete about the funcockatoo climate (snnkkkk); but you'll have a literally rollicking good time drinking in sunbeams from cover to cover. Now is the perfect moment, and you came to a very right place. Dibs on the next signed copy, though.
