Pipes and Literature
Books and pipes seem to go together. A while back I took a trip to Salinas, California for a stop at the John Steinbeck museum. Steinbeck isn't necessarily my favorite author, but his book EAST OF EDEN is one of my favorite novels. I wasn't a lifelong reader but started in my early 30s and it was the book that really got me going, so it stays close to the heart. I've read much of his other work since but none of it moved me like EOE did. I thought I'd share some pics of my time there in Salinas. I took Bing along with me (my favorite pipe). The RV/truck is the one he drove around America and later wrote about in TRAVELS WITH CHARLEY, which is pretty much the ultimate road-trip book.
