Lunch Time Notes



These past few lovely summer days, Africa on my mind: first there was Salif Keita's dazzle in a Brooklyn dusk, and last evening, Orchestra Baobab's Senegalese spin on Cuban rumba, by the shores of Hudson River.

And to complement such musical feasting, two writers, previously one known and one not, inflaming an old scabby hunger (grown passive with time etc) for literature: this past week witnessed consumption of two novels from the roof of the world, Halldór Laxness's "The Fish Can Sing" (from Icelandic) and Knut Hamsun's brilliant "Growth of the Soil" (from Norwegian)

Header Change



In keeping with the change in seasons, a header change: detail from a photograph I took of a sunset over Vernazza, Italy. This is the actual photograph; makes a pretty screensaver, if I may say so myself.

Journeymen



Dante, Kafka, Hesse and he
Will wander about in the lands
Of Visigoths and Romans* for
The next three weeks, in which
There will be much drinking,
much eating, and perhaps more reading

  • some documentary evidence
    Of which may surface here.
  • in Asterix's formulation
