John Updike is dead
Tom Smith

Unwelcome news.  I renew my objection to this whole getting old and dying thing.

I was never much of an Updike fan.  I just found his men too weak to be very interesting.  Perhaps he was just much more charitably inclined than I am.  But he did love his country more than most American novelists, that's for sure.

I haven't fallen in love with all of Updike's work, though i do enjoy his candid writing style; his passing is a sad loss indeed

I feel like time is going incredibly fast and slow at the same time. The weeks/months seem to be crawling...but at the same time, I turn around on Monday and suddenly it is Sunday again
