A Book, A Sunset and A Pair Of Slippers: Good Things From January

Actually, the title to this essay is incomplete, because the best thing of all from January was the departure from the presidency of lying-through-his-teeth, seditious Donald Trump. Faithful readers of this publication are aware that I despise Trump. He’s a poisoner of minds. I’m far, far from alone in being able to breathe normally now that he’s not in the White House.

But that’s enough about Trump. Let’s move on to a book I read in January that I think is awfully close to being great. It’s a slim volume too, a proper length for a reader whose attention span these days often is measured in nanoseconds. Namely, me. Flight is the novel’s name and Sherman Alexie is its creator. It follows the doings of a teen who calls himself Zits, a painful nod to the pimples that cover his face unmercifully. Zits has been dealt a pitiful hand. His American Indian father abandoned the family when he was born. And his mother, a white woman, died when Zits, an only child, was six. His life since then has been a revolving door of foster homes and youth facilities. Opening in the early 2000s in Seattle, Washington, and narrated by Zits, Flight drew me in from the get-go.

Zits is smart and funny, but exceedingly anti-social too. Basically, he’s lost. Love doesn’t factor into his life. He has no friends. A career path isn’t in sight. And he feels the pull of, but is disconnected from, his indigenous roots. He knows all of this, and possibly is open to his plight taking upward directions. However, how might such ever occur?

One day, strange business begins happening to Zits. From out of the blue he becomes a time traveler, tossed by forces unknown and unseen into the bodies of others whose circumstances make Zits examine his American Indian heritage and the ways in which American Indians have interacted with, and been treated by, the USA’s white population. On one of his journeys into the past, for instance, Zits uneasily faces complicated moral issues at the Battle Of The Little Big Horn, a gruesome confrontation, in 1876, between Native Americans and the U.S. military.

Loneliness and anger have defined Zits for many of his days. But his surreal experiences, affecting him deeply, widen his perspectives and loosen his emotions. Those experiences affected me deeply too. As did the book’s entirety. Flight felt authentic to me, including the time-travelling episodes. The dialog sparkles throughout Flight, and Zits’ thoughts and observations are sharp and alive, not wobbling for even a moment. Alexie can write. Alexie, by the way, grew up on an Indian reservation in the state of Washington. He left the reservation years ago, and has become a well-known author. The position of  American Indians in society is an ongoing theme in his works.

Is there a way to segue gracefully from Sherman Alexie to a sunset? Shit, I ain’t even going to try. Sunsets . . . man, I hardly can believe how often I’ve written about them on these pages. And I think it will be a while before I’m sunset-ed out.

My previous opus contains a few words about a magnificent sunset that I caught in December 2020. I viewed it while walking around my neighborhood. During that walk I realized that the finest spot to gaze at the setting Sun in my hood is from a corner half a block from my house. That corner provides as open a view of the western horizon as you can get in my town (I live near Philadelphia). It had taken me a mere 15 and three-quarters years of home ownership to make that discovery!

Anyway, since the eureka moment arrived I’ve moseyed to that corner a number of times to watch the Sun do its thing. And on the second of January I hit the jackpot. Most sunsets in my locale are good but not great. But as the skies darkened on the date in question, what had been a pleasant sunset transformed miraculously. Fiery oranges exploded beneath blues and greys that were not to be played with. Pale yellow shards seethed. I knew without a doubt that I was in the right place at the right time.

From sunsets to slippers? Sure, why not? For the past five or so years I was the owner of a navy blue pair of slippers that did their job just fine. Until 2019, that is, when they decided that they enjoyed sliding off my feet when I strode up and down stairs. I began to dislike them at that point, and got really sick of the f*ckers when the sole of the right-foot slipper opted to decompose, in no time developing a hole big enough to stick a corn cob through. But, lazy as I am, I hung on to the siblings rather than purchase replacements.

Finally, though, enough became enough. Last month I scouted out slippers on the internet, and bought a pair that appeared to meet my modest requirements. When they arrived at my front door I deposited the crappy ones in the trash. I adore my new slippers so far. They are comfortable, fit nice and snugly, and look damn good too. Yeah, I’m in slippers heaven. Out with the old and in with the new! Hey, that’s not always a top-notch idea, but this time it was.

(Please don’t be shy about adding your comments. Mucho gracias.)

    As a slipperless man, you have induced slipper-envy in me! I was basking in a warm feeling of contentment: Trump gone; a book that sounds like an astounding read; and an edifying sunset; all was well with the world, then suddenly you induce the disquieting notion that something significant is missing in my life!

    “What’s the problem, George?” I hear you say. “You will have to buy the book, why not buy a pair of slippers too?”

    Well, I’ve always been proudly barefoot around the house. It was a side of the fence I had hitherto firmly embraced. Now you have me questioning my life choices 🙂

    This is a great post, and I can relate to many of its themes…I too like a good, thoughtful read and think I’d enjoy and benefit from read reading “Flight”, I too was plagued by zits as a teenager (my classmates called me “Spot,” and would sometimes greet me with a cry of “Spot the loony” as I entered the room), I too have recently discovered (thanks to the UK’s Covid restrictions) places and vistas within walking distance of my house that I’ve been unaware of for decades, I too have a new, comfortable pair of slippers! But most of all I can relate to your first paragraph…well said, my friend.

    It is, perhaps, that as the body ages there is a clear and undeniable need for slippers. I have been, like George above, a barefoot about the house man and have always found that a comfortable manner of living. However – the old age bit is coming now – I have found recently that the skin on my heels has become very dry, even to the point of splitting and, encouraged by my darling wife, have taken to wearing slippers. Now, she obviously could have had a career in the diplomatic service, for she didn’t push me immediately to real slippers – you know those tartan design canvas ones which slide along the floors of retirement homes beneath the unbending and unbendable legs of geriatrics – no, she suggested a re-use of an old pair of decks, well softened and well loved from years of happy wear, and added the further convincing note that I had had it in mind to purchase a new, quite swanky and stylish, pair of decks as soon as we were free to venture out again when Covid restrictions were lifted. So, my heels are coated in emollient cream before slipping – very easily, as you can imagine after the application – into my old, dear decks. I am a new man!

    On the other hand, sunsets have frustrated me – the lack of sunsets, that is, though of course the sun has not failed to set here in the south-east of Ireland; it is just that it has failed to do so with any colour of late. I write a weekly blog on my garden and, over the past few months, have joined a group which posts a “Six-on-Saturday” which put a pressure on the contributor to have six topic in the write-up. I managed an hour’s work in the garden this past week and, with the best writing skills in the world, it has been mentally challenging to imagine myself stretching the experience to six topics. With this in mind, a good sunset on evening prompted me to think of including a few sunset photographs as one of the six. Now, as with my word count here, one photograph would never do me where I could use ten, so I had it in mind to photograph the sunset each evening and, as the colours of the sunset can change rather rapidly even within a short few minutes, I imagined I could up my count of photographs with relative ease. In line with Murphy’s Law, that what can go wrong will go wrong, there wasn’t a glimmer of colour any evening for the rest of the week. It has been a painfully dull week with dark and dank days, cold and bitter, with my bum almost rooted to the seat of the armchair and certainly it has widened considerably.

    The native American and his searching in life – as you Americans would say, “Tell me about it!”. I’m Irish – 800 years of conquest by the English. I’m even writing to you in their language!

      Hi, Paddy. I think I started to truly appreciate sunsets in the mid-1990s. I can’t recall ever looking at them too much prior to that. In any case, I especially have loved looking at them on Cape Cod, where my wife and I have vacationed most years, starting in 1998 or so. Because of the virus, we didn’t go there in 2020. Over the last 60 days I’ve seen a few real good sunsets where I live.

    The Grand Twitterer may be quiet but, unfortunately, he’s left behind a howling mass of poisoned minds that won’t shut up. I refuse to listen, but take up your offer of reading a good book. There’s a lot of excellent Native American volumes on the shelf to check out. Recent faves from mine: House Made of Dawn (Momaday), Ceremony (Silko), and Lame Deer Seeker of Visions (Erdoes). I do not wear slippers, but think that these & many others would be greatly rewarding as the toes snuggle up in the warmth of newness & the sun’s sweet afterglow.

Isn’t it odd how you can live in a place for many years and then recently discover the best spot to a take a picture of the sunset? I expect this happens to many of us. As for slippers…Clif and I are two frugal Mainers who make it a point to keep things until they have completely fallen apart. But even for us, the time comes when we must buy something new. Then, we sure do appreciate whatever we have bought. Enjoy those cozy slippers.

    Coincidentally, Neil, I’m in the midst of reading books by and about American Indians (mainly the Blackfoot tribe). One of best novels I’ve ever read is Fools Crow by James Welch, concerning the coming of age of a young Blackfoot boy in the 19th century and his witnessing the obliteration of his people and culture. Powerful book, sort of a historical version of Flight.

    As for Captain Tweets, expect publication of Mein Trumpf any day now.

      Hi, Martie. I hadn’t known about this one. I looked it up a few minutes ago. It gets good ratings overall. Have you read it?

        I’m reading it now and enjoying it. But someone recommended it to me but I can’t remember who.

        Thanks for getting back to me. I am almost done with the book and yes, I am enjoying the novel.
