The first is a book by spiritual teacher Michael Singer. It explores questions of identity and consciousness. The second is a John Steinbeck novel. We had a nice conversation about books, and John mentioned that he'd been to the Steinbeck museum down in Salinas, back in the day. He said, "Hey, tell Sue I found my wallet!" I knew he meant Sue, our Guest Librarian at Street Books. "Yeah, she was really worried," John said. Then he grinned. "Found it in my backpack."
