pleasure and pain
First the pleasure. Here it is: "Mountains Beyond Mountains" by Tracy Kidder.
This non-fiction book, in Kidder's usual elegant, eloquent style, is about Paul Farmer, a doctor who has devoted his life to bringing medical services to the neediest among us in such places as Haiti, Peru and Russia. A wonderful read.
The bad news: something very freaky has happened to the mail program in Firefox on my computer. So I am now using Safari; so far, so good. I need to have a one-on-one with g'son Andrew. The good news there; I'll see him this coming weekend. The bad news; I'm not taking this computer.
I know, I know, with all the ills of the world I should worry about my mail program? And the ills just keep coming, don't they?
