"04-14/03/2019: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms was fine, for the most part, with some parts that I found excellent and some that I found dull. Given the title, I thought that there might have been some more exploration of the world as a whole (I didn't really feel that there were more than a dozen or so Kingdoms tbh). Many of the characters also seemed peripheral; but the three or so that were developed I really liked." Mar 14, 2019 02:33PM

"8/3/2019: I read the essay "Is Gender Necessary? Redux" in which Le Guin in 1988 reflects on Le Guin in 1976 writing about The Left Hand of Darkness, i.e. Le Guin in 1968/69, with each successive Le Guin becoming more contemptuous of the lack of courage shown by the previous Le Guin, especially in the use of the pronoun "he" for the Gethenians. It's a great example of how to change your mind and a great read for IWD." Mar 08, 2019 07:42AM

“Light is the left hand of darkness
and darkness the right hand of light.
Two are one, life and death, lying
together like lovers in kemmer,
like hands joined together,
like the end and the way.”
