In Search of the Good Ride

So here I am searching about tumblr for the same things I search for elsewhere -- something interesting. I'm a Water Tiger in the Chinese zodiac, and that pretty much sums me up. I am a hopeless, sometimes hopeful, romantic; which means I spend a lot of time walking around quiet & alone. Which is not to say there isn't a universe exploding inside my head. It's just that there seem to be so few people out there that see it, or I should say, get it. Maybe you do. If you have something interesting to show or tell, please share.
One of the few books of my childhood — The Sailor Dog, by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Garth Williams.  This 1969 printing is on large book stock, roughly 9-1/2” x 12-1/2”.  All other copies of this book I’ve ever encountered are on more typical smaller hand-sized book form.
