And So It Goes…
I recorded last night and woke up today to find that Kurt Vonnegut
passed away last night. It’s like my own personal Mark Twain died. So sad.

I started reading Vonnegut when I was in fifth grade. My parents let me read almost all of his books (except Player Piano) and I literally wolfed them down–most of them I’ve reread at some point. He wrote a two page “how to write” flyer that I THINK is still in my box of “school junk”. Brilliant.
I’m so sorry he’s not public domain. We wont be able to listen to him here, but I so deeply urge you to pick up something he wrote. Slaughterhouse Five (riffs on his experiences IN a Dresden meat locker (!) during our (secret) WWII bombing campaign) or Cat’s Cradle (riffs on life, the universe, and everything) are good places to start.
“See?…no damn cat…no damn cradle…”

Back to Craftlit:

I am sad about Vera; don’t forget your shirt; check out some neat yarn stores (now and pending) I came across; a cool thimble; nifty blogs to read; a Knitty Coffeeshop (no really); a knitalong for this (which I covet); and more on the mysterious “Hilary Term“.

And I promised a pic of The Shirt:

Hi there and welcome!
I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do.
CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure another one will.
Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
