i’ve read the Cooper but not Wieland altho i have it… i couldn’t get the video gadget to work, not surprising as i’m totally incompetent at that sort of computer stuff lol…
tx for the link! i couldn’t understand some of what you said because i’m moderately hearing impaired, but the pictures were glorious! Cooper is one of my favorite writers. i guess i judge writing by the personality i sense while reading and not by their use of language, which might be a fault, possibly… i’m not driven to read Brown by what you said, as believing as i do that most humans are nuts, i try to not get immersed in their imaginary problems, lol… more Cooper this year in my posts if the gods smile…
