We're heading back to 2006 in the word nerd notebooks today. The following passage is from Cormac McCarthy's The Road:

Just remember that the things you put into your head are there forever, he said. You might want to think about that. You forget some things, don't you? Yes. You forget what you want to remember and remember what you want to forget.

Loved this book, and thought the movie was excellent too.

Me, too. Same with No Country For Old Men.

Chris La Tray said...

Yep. In fact, I think I preferred the movie version of NCFOM better than the book.

Ooh, that's a tough call. Casting for NC was pretty tough to beat. I should do a re-read/watch.

About Malcolm Avenue Review

I was lucky enough to be born and raised in a nifty, oak-shaded ranch house on Malcolm Avenue, a wide-laned residential street with little through traffic, located amid the foothills of Northern California. It was on that street and in that house I learned most of my adolescent life lessons, and many grown-up ones to boot. Malcolm Avenue was "home" for more than thirty years.

It was on Malcolm Avenue, through and with my family and the other families that made up our neighborhood of characters, that I first learned about and gained an appreciation for the things I continue to love the most to this day: music, animals, photography, sports, television/movies and, of course, books.

I owe a debt of gratitude to that life on Malcolm Avenue. It gave me a sense of community and friendship, support and adventure. For better and worse, life on that street likely had the biggest impact on the person I've become. So this blog, and the things I write here, are all, at their base level, a little bit of a love letter to Malcolm Avenue.
