Oh faithful gorillas! I wish I could have been there for you the last year. I write about books daily on Book Punks, but personal essays, published online, are just not possible right now.
But you still visit. You still come, by the dozens, to this site, every single day. When I see that I miss you, and I wish it was still possible for me to write about my living space, collective living, and tiny houses. It isn’t, ho hum, oh well. But I can offer you a small morsel, a keyhole, a window into my life in case you miss me: my instagram account bookpunksread. It is the closest I currently come to lifestyle blogging, and I share pictures of Frankfurt, books, cooking, and our tiny houses. I’d love for you to visit me there. Send me a message if you do, so I know who you are and can follow you back.
One tradition remains the same: The Year in Books. It went up on Book Punks today, and I’d love if you joined me once again to talk about your year in reading.
Uncertain about what to do with this space after such a long fallow period, I am considering a book. Click Clack Gorilla: condensed, revised, updated, expanded, and self-published. It would be a significant time committment, but a worthy tribute to the time we’ve spent here. What do you think? Would you read it? Would you want it? Would you buy it for 99 cents?
Until then, faithful gorillas, stay dirty, stay awesome, stay wild. xxx
