Winter Afternoon Light

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Travel with Charley: In Search of America is in one of my to-read book piles. It may be the next book I reach for, being that I'm curious to learn what John Steinbeck was seeking as he wandered about the country with his canine pal Charley in 1960. Steinbeck was traveling in the era to which the present administration seems to want to return. You know the "Make America Great Again". Myself, I would rather not return to the age when civil rights for all was not honored by those mean-spirited in power and those cowardly who sided with the powerful.


  1. Funny that you quote John Steinbeck after posting on my blog about it being cold. Thanks for visiting and I'll be back.

    1. You're welcome, Dave, and welcome to The View from the Ladder! :-)

  2. I'm sure it was Shangri-La if you were white male hetrosexual and rich.

    1. I wonder about that since then and now they continue to want more.

  3. How true what you wrote about the 1960s. I like that quote
