Great book. Did you take 'Utopia' with me at IMSA? I can't remember.

I flipped through your copy of Culture in Mind when I visited. The notes in the margins completely looked like my friend (who's a cognitive science student with degrees in linguistics and symbolic systems)'s handwriting - and I thought it would have been crazy whacked if that had been her book previously. But, she doesn't remember reading it, so probably not.

It's too bad she didn't come down with me - you guys would have loved discussing this kind of stuff.

Yes! Utopia totally hooked me on LeGuin. That conversation we had about "A Non-Euclidean View of California as a Cold Place to Be" crystalized a huge number of understandings in my head.

Since then I've managed to read every single novel that LeGuin has written. There's just a few short stories and childrens books that I haven't tracked down yet. I'm really as obsessed with her as I am with Linguistics.

I'm glad my bathroom gave you SOME goodness.

You'll have to introduce me to your friends when I come visit some day. Or bring them when you come paint my house.
