These last two weeks have been really busy but full of great activities.
On the reading front, my forward momentum has slowed down but not to the point of being concern about it.
Things have progressed somewhat slow but with a constant flow of pages.
According to my projections, the year promises to finish with about 28,000 pages, which is pretty good but not what I hope for. This put much more pressure on (Y-10) to achieve the coveted 130,500 pages in three years.
My reading, at least for the last two weeks, has been a mixture of comic and a little headway on my current books, Apocalipsis by Stephen King and Sorgo Rojo by Mo Yan.
Also, I finished reading The Amber Spyglass, the third and final book of His Dark Material series, in my opinion, the weakest of the series, don’t get me wrong is still a pretty good book but not quite as good as the previous two.
Last week I mainly spent it attending some conferences in the local art museum and doing a walk along the border to visit some of the murals painted by the local artists on the retaining concrete walls of the Rio Bravo.
The infamous “Black Bridge”

And for the main dish of the weekend, a concert of At the Drive-In with the magnificent opening act of Le Butcherettes.
At the Drive-In are natives of El Paso, the city that we share our beautiful borderland.
