I've got a new day job, which is more demanding (i.e. extended and less-predictable hours) than the job I'm leaving. Until I get an idea how to work in my free time, this blog will be a low priority for me. I expect this could take three weeks or so. I may still be able to post one or two things during that time.
In the meantime, here's a minor Miller item. The Sylvia Beach Hotel
in Nye Beach, Oregon has a literary theme. Each room if dedicated to various authors. Although rooms are dedicated to writers such as Mark Twain, Poe, Melville, Jane Austen, as well as Dr Seuss, Hemingway and Colette, the management has cheekily dedicated the toilet and sinks to Henry Miller.
The Henry V Miller Memorial Restrooms are comprised of the Tropic Of Cancer
room (for women) and the Tropic Of Capricorn
room (for men). I found this item (and photo) from a former guest of the hotel, over at The Writer Mama
I wonder what other Miller titles could be used in this context: a sign above the urinal saying Stand Still Like The Hummingbird; or, above the sink: Remember to Remember to Wash Your Hands. There are better ones, I'm sure. Please amuse yourselves in the Comments section while I'm away.
