It's Tuesday. That means it's a bridge night. That means I'm not going to Columbia Law School for the free lecture by Oliver Sacks on how music affects the brain. Nor will I be going to the New School to hear finalists for the National Book Critics Circle award read from their work. On the other hand, there will be a total of 30 minutes of driving time for listening to my latest car book, Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson ( I'm nearly finished with her earlier novel, Housekeeping - also dazzlingly beautiful). I need to find a way to get my bridge fix without its taking up so much time.

Hm, that Oliver Sacks lecture sounds pretty interesting. But, then again, so is bridge, right?

But the weather was so extreme last night. If it had been springy, I would have gone to NY to hear Oliver Sacks instead of playing bridge two blocks away in NJ, wouldn't I?
