Fascinating quotation

from the 20th century Orthodox Christian theologian Paul Evdokimov, at Vox Nova.

I don't understand, or perhaps don't agree with, the bit about "obligatory international taxation." And am wary of anyone who tosses about the word "proletariat"; still, a fascinating quotation, nonetheless.

Tinkering with the Blogger User Profile

Adding a photo. And various "interests." Et cetera.


Still no Keba

I am disconsolate. I fall upon the thorns of life!

Dylan Thomas film

Article about an upcoming Dylan Thomas film

in which we learn that Mick Jagger owns the rights to DT's 1939 collection The Map of Love.


I'm glad the Celtics won

Very glad indeed. But I do tire of the phrase "rolling rally." It's a ******* parade.

No Keba

My favorite reporter was missing from this morning's Fox 25 newscast. Hélas! Woe is me! Life is so terribly unfair.


Jack Benny's age

The occasion falls today. Huzzah, etc. Let joy be unconfined.

Back from the north

Back from the north

The mountains are still there! Weather conducive, on one afternoon, to outdoor swimming. The driving on I-93 enough to give one palpitations of anxiety. A little rain. Saw a moose. Great breakfast Sunday morning, great dinner Sunday night. Unfortunately, one absolutely sleepless night/morning in an unfamiliar bed, but I wasn't as tired as one might think the following day.

Something I should do more often!
