BUF AT LARGE:

Pause, Connect, Reflect, and Rejuvenate

This is a place for you to take a breather: to read a poem, a wise saying, a joke, or to solve a puzzle. Please feel free to share any comments with me. (Bharti Kirchner)

From Why Literature? By Mario Vargas Llosa: “It has often happened to me, at book fairs or in bookstores, that a gentleman approaches me and asks me for a signature. “It is for my wife, my young daughter, or my mother,” he explains. “She is a great reader and loves literature.” Immediately I ask: “And what about you? Don’t you like to read?” The answer is almost always the same: “Of course I like to read, but I am a very busy person.” To read the entire piece go to the following URL: https://newrepublic.com/article/78238/mario-vargas-llosa-literature
