9:33 am - The Edge of Nature
If you leave very early for work, you might get to see two deer, graceful and delicate, strolling the neighborhood on their fragile legs. #lucky

11:01 am - IN MEMORIAM: Donald Hall (and still remembering Jane Kenyon)

Donald Hall, poet and husband of Jane Kenyon, has died at the age of 89.

Gold
Donald Hall, 1928 - 2018

Pale gold of the walls, gold
of the centers of daisies, yellow roses
pressing from a clear bowl. All day
we lay on the bed, my hand
stroking the deep
gold of your thighs and your back.
We slept and woke
entering the golden room together,
lay down in it breathing
quickly, then
slowly again,
caressing and dozing, your hand sleepily
touching my hair now.

We made in those days
tiny identical rooms inside our bodies
which the men who uncover our graves
will find in a thousand years,
shining and whole.

And a poem by Jane Kenyon, whose work I love:

Let Evening Come
By Jane Kenyon

Let the light of late afternoon
shine through chinks in the barn, moving
up the bales as the sun moves down.

Let the cricket take up chafing
as a woman takes up her needles
and her yarn. Let evening come.

Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned
in long grass. Let the stars appear
and the moon disclose her silver horn.

Let the fox go back to its sandy den.
Let the wind die down. Let the shed
go black inside. Let evening come.

To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop
in the oats, to air in the lung
let evening come.

Let it come, as it will, and don’t
be afraid. God does not leave us
comfortless, so let evening come.

 

May Donald and Jane rest in power.

Please feel free to share any poetry. These days, with so much going on personally, politically, professionally, I crave it.

4:48 pm - A Soup Recipe

Ginger-Gyoza Soup

Recently something reminded me of a soup recipe I'd developed, and I thought I'd share it here. There are two versions: the detailed and the quickie. Also: gyoza are otherwise known as potstickers or dumplings.

What are your favorite recipes for an easy dinner?

11:34 am - Looking for a Short Story

You know the feeling. You've read a story or a book that stayed with you -- all but the title and author, that is. I'm suffering a small, annoying torment along those lines. Please help, if you can.

 

For the SF/F readers among you: In the past couple of years, I read a time-travel story told from the POV of John Lennon. Someone had come back in time to pull him out just before he was assassinated. Does anyone else remember this story? Who wrote it, and what's the title?

 

Notes:

 

It's a short story, not a novel.
 

It's not any of the following:

  • Get Back: Imagine… Saving John Lennon by Donovan Day.
  • Lifehouse by Spider Robinson.
  • Saint John Lennon by Daniel Hartwell

10:58 am - MEME: Icons a Go Go
Reply to this post with "PORGS!" and I will pick three of your icons for you to talk about in your own journal, and then keep the meme going by making this offer on your post.

Swiped from the estimable [personal profile] rydra_wong .




Keywords: russ, SF, wiscon


I made this icon -- a photo of SF author Joanna Russ followed by two of my favorite short quotations from her brilliant THE FEMALE MAN. On reflection, I'm not sure how coherent it is, and the aesthetics make my eyes bleed. Nevertheless, they're still two of my favorite quotes from Joanna Russ, and she is still one of the most important writers in my personal canon. Not just because she was a lesbian and a feminist when I desperately needed to know I wasn't alone, but because she deconstructed oppression with such wit and accuracy.

 
Keywords: change, hands on from iconsbycurtana

Yes, that is Katharine Hepburn, but even more important than the magnificent Kate is the role she was playing: Eleanor of Aquitaine in THE LION IN WINTER. If you haven't seen that movie, remedy the omission as soon as you can. Peter O'Toole reprises his role as her husband Henry II from the movie BECKET -- the two films make a great double feature. Let's just say that the family is royally dysfunctional. I rarely use this icon, though I should bring it out more -- being able to change the world doesn't depend on having a solid foundation of a healthy family life.




Keyword: lies  made by dymers_dream

Quotation from Terry Pratchett, another star in my personal canon, with a nod to the X-Files. It's a useful reminder to question your own assumptions -- although it's always easier and more fun to question other people's.

I'm hoping this will lead me back into posting more. I really miss DW/LJ's longer, more meaningful posts from interesting people.

12:19 am - Merry Christmas
In the first moments of Christmas Day, my mind is filled with the words of Isaiah: “He shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” All as sung in Handel’s Messiah. May your day be full of joy and blessings, whatever your faith.

I have to confess my mind is also full of the cherry-peach pie I just pulled from the oven and the rising bread that goes in next. My heart is full of the joys and losses of this year. And so much else.

How are you doing, and what is in your heart today?
