reading SALINGER a biography by
Shields and Salerno (2013). A big huge book
very hard to put down on the bus to work
or in bed at night. I also really like the
form of the book, placing his life on
a Buddhist path. Reminds me also to
reread his writing again and looking forward
to his books which will come to light.

spent all weekend with Salinger.
I had to see him through the second
world war horror. Now he's fighting
to get Catcher in the Rye published.
This book is such a good read it's
made me put everything else on hold
and I'm in the midst of publishing two
books too!

Regard all objects perceived during the daytime 
as things of a dream. One must think to oneself, 
‘These objects are but dream experiences and 
I must recognize this dream as a dream.’ 
Practicing this mindfulness during the day will 
have the effect that at night when a dream occurs 
one will automatically think, ‘This is but a dream 
experience.’ The stronger becomes the instinct 
of the training cultivated during the day, 
the stronger will become one’s ability 
to recognize the dream state when asleep.
