Feeling a bit like Jonah these days—or Gepetto, swallowed up by the terrible [academic] dogfish.
Jonathan Goldstein has read a few very entertaining chapters from 'Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible' on his show; you should be able to find them free in Wiretap's iTunes archives.
And I've been meaning to thank you for all the kind comments. It's so nice to hear from you. Until Google designs a nifty feature, I'll do as Anabela does and reply below...
This was last Saturday's sunrise at Smitswinkelbaie. Worth a 5:20 wake-up.
Ana b.: Thank you! Spring has been a bit on-and-off around here but the markets have made up for it.
Anabelle Merg: I read one of Neil Gaiman's books ('The Graveyard Book') pretty recently. I loved it up until about 3/4 of the way through—the ending felt a bit rushed. And 'The Giver'! Elementary school classic.
Bawkbawk: Good to know I'm not the only one :)
Ingrid: Deb! She's amazing!
Ginta: You're right, it's one of the best connections there is.
Jessica: Hello you too! Have you seen my shared items? I'm pretty sure that they're 90% via Something Changed. I really enjoy your posts about social media/identity, and nice new header! Also: how could I forget 'Anne of Green Gables'? 'Little Women' should be up there too.
Jude: You're such a commenting superstar. I am pretty lucky with our farmer's markets.
Mikey: 'The Jungle Book' definitely counts! I have to admit that I only know the Disney version. Shame; I did read 'Kim' while traveling in India, though.
Ringo, have a banana!: I completely agree. On a semi-related note, this poem is worth a read.
Lightning heart, Marinka, Vic, May: Thank you! I feel like film is taking me good places these days.
