The Secret Goldfish
A lot on my mind lately. Good things, mostly, which keep me busy. It's good to have deadlines to work towards, and I've done some writing, editing and sending off this weekend.
Now I'm going to relax a little, before starting to worry about my next big deadline for what I think could be my biggest challenge yet.
Sorry I'm being a little secretive here, but I'll let you know more when I have more details myself.
I realised a couple of days ago that I have a used bilingual Russian-English copy of "Catcher in the Rye" bought at a book stall a few years ago. (Moscow Progress Publishers 1979)
"... He wrote this terrific book of short stories The Secret Goldfish, in case you never heard of him. The best one in it was "The Secret Goldfish." It was about this little kid that wouldn't let anybody look at his goldfish because he'd bought it with his own money. It killed me..."
From The Catcher in the Rye by J.D.Salinger
