Woodstock For Someone Who Wasn’t There

[image error]Woodstock 1969
[image error]Me, Mote Park 1969

It’s the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock, three days of love and music.


In 2019, it is perhaps good to take a moment to remember Woodstock. This is not, I have to admit, because Woodstock and its time are a shining beacon, a state of grac...

Sunday Confessions #5


Hello week five of my confessions. I love this post. It helps me recast what I've done during the week and puts into light the mass amount of books I've been reading lately. I thought at the beginning of the year that my book consumption would be less than last year. I was in a reading slump and... Read more of this blog post »

Keep Keeping On

Sometimes the world may like to get us down. Don't let it. Use what has happened and turn it around. No matter how bad it is, there's a lesson or some way to help someone else.

信号を守りましょう

今日は気が向いて 車でヤビツドライブ。

チャリの時は夕方出撃が多く
そうするとほとんど人に合わなかったりするんですが
さすがに日曜日の午前9時、
この暑いさなかでもチャリで上っている人が30人ほど。

上にも10人ほど休んでいる人が。



くれぐれも体調に気をつけて。

さて、
今日もまた藤棚の交差点、
旧デイリーのところ
信号無視のロードを見ました。

みっともないので
やめましょう。




上はヤビツ峠売店で買った本。

良い本です。

丹沢をウロウロする人には必携、おススメ。

Saturday 17 August 2019

When last I listed some movies watched, I only listed six. I've got such a backlog, I don't know why I stopped so short. (Perhaps because six is how many it takes to get an eggroll. Har, har.) Therefore, today you get eight!

117. (1556.) Ransom! (1956)

At the northern end of the reservoir, we kayak north, where the water flows into the Black River, crossing the Canadian border on its meandering way to the Atlantic.

Анна Ахматова(1889-1966)
Все расхищено, предано, продано,
Черной смерти мелькало крыло,
Все голодной тоскою изглодано,
Отчего же нам стало светло?

Днем дыханьями веет вишневыми
Небывалый под городом лес,
Ночью блещет созвездьями... новыми
Глубь прозрачных июльск...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
