It's always good to get to "true" facts of the matter, however, does it ultimately matter? The image has some (special) meaning for a certain individual. Someone else may attribute some different meaning to the same image. And the meaning to the author, some 90+ years ago, may be something yet again. All these meanings have value. To each individual. Making fun of this is akin to picking on someone for their choice of a favorite color.

Even if it is wrong. :)

Hi, the article is so wonderful, I am interested in it. I will pay attention to your articles.

I realize this piece was written quite awhile ago, but was wondering if I could get the scans of each of those articles (The Slipper Tongue, Ways that are Dark, and A Charge to Keep) from you. I am doing some research on GWB and am having trouble finding bound copies of those articles.

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
