From Thomas Pynchon's Slow Learner (Commonplace Book)

What is most appealing about young folks, after all, is the changes, not the still photograph of finished character but the movie, the soul in flux. Maybe this small attachment to my past is only another case of what Frank Zappa calls a bunch of old guys sitting around playing rock 'n' roll. But as we all know, rock 'n' roll will never die, and education, as Henry Adams always sez, keeps going on forever.

Have you read AGAINST THE DAY?

I have not. I am trying to figure out how to find the time. I have read everything else Pynchon has done -- he is one of my favorite writers.
