Adam Robinson at Publishing Genius had told me I’d like Matthew Savoca’s new book, “I Don’t Know,” I Said, and I asked him to bring a copy to the bar but he forgot or didn’t feel like it and so also mailed it later. How lovely to return from a trip with good books in hand to good books in the mailbox:
I drove all night while Carolina slept upright in the passenger seat with her eyes shut and her mouth open. It was funny to watch. Her head rolled back and forth with the road. I didn’t have the radio on. I just sat there for hours with the sound of the engine and the tires and thought about how we had no idea what we were doing — how it was just easier to be alive this way, going to new places, moving a lot.
