Alpacalypse!!

leave a comment »

alpacalypseI’ve now got 4 of the most charming bookmarks ever! Alpacas!! Thank you, SuziQ!

Off they go romping into 2017 to reignite some of the reading that has been pushed too far aside the past 3 months —

  • Alice, one of my twins, dances off into my Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, by Douglas R. Hofstadter.
  • Alison, my other twin, grazes for but a moment in Petrarch’s Songbook a verse translation by James Wyatt Cook. She gets easily distracted and can be found prancing most anywhere.
  • Albert, the eldest, plays in Auto-Da-Fé, by Elias Canetti, translated by C.V. Wedgwood.
  • Alan, the baby of the herd, finds her fun in Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom, by Condoleezza Rice.

Say what?! Social science suggests what??!

Run that by me again, please…

Glance at a Life

“You still use a planner?” is a question I am often asked with out-and-out disbelief.

Don’t expect me to be one to ask.

on th wsj fold

leave a comment »

i was showing one of our board members how we used to roll up th wsj up into a cylinder for reading on th train, demonstrating how that made th stories flow in a continuous river

then i told my colleague that i had only been teasing, despite how my demonstration had in fact made th stories in th paper flow. i then unrolled th paper and showed th wsj fold as we did actually read our papers on th train. as i did so, th stories cam alive much as they had done with th cylinder i’d made, except as a continuous slide show that made each page leap out like a web page with links that opened automatically in dimensions above and below th page and into other dimensions that wound into our heads

on bernie’s paintings

a new movie was coming out soon, to be called Hall, a dark mysterious tale meant more to lead the mind of a viewer into his own mind rather than into its own story, i knew where it was going as though i had already been there and looked forward to its release for th doorway of going there again
