Major things are wind, evil, a good fighting horse, prepositions, inexhaustible love, the way people choose their king. Minor things include dirt, the name of schools of philosophy, mood and not having a mood, the correct time. There are more major things than minor things overall, yet there are more minor things than I have written here, but it is disheartening to list them. When I think of you reading this, I do not want you to be taken captive, separated by a wire mesh lined with glass from your life itself, like some Elektra.
SHOOT I FORGOT to make a post about this but two weeks ago Anne and Emily and I had the last The Sound and the Forte ever, and Anne and I tried to learn how to use Dell’s version of photobooth.
It’s been a wild ride, thanks WXBC.
Looking for a beautiful way to kill some time on a weekend afternoon? Listen to Liev Schreiber reading Italo Calvino’s “The Distance of the Moon”, from Cosmicomics. It’s a tale of the evolution of our moon, from a time when it was not so far away, milked for nourishment by lunar herdsmen.
How wonderful that a story could be built on science (our moon did used to be closer to us, and moves farther away every year) yet journey so far into the imagination!

We did a show on “The Distance of the Moon” a few weeks ago! This is wonderful.
