Splash du Jour: Monday

The notion of Florida brought mention of the Keys which brought memories to Tinker of reading Treasure Island as a boy and digging with his brother for backyard doubloons; which brought memories to both of us of Robinson Crusoe and daydreams of being stranded; which got us on the track of what two belongings we'd want in our pockets when we were eventually shipwrecked alone: for Tinker (sensibly) a jackknife and a flint; for me (insensibly) a pack of cards and Walden by Thoreau -- the only book in which infinity can be found on every other page.
-- from Rules of Civility, by Amor Towles --

Have a great Monday!
