Frogs and Things

Update: 210929. {Earlier: 200116 (doesn’t that yymmdd config. look funny?)}

Always I’m referring to those books mentioned earlier and am continuing with:

Peter Esterházy “The Glance of Countess Hahn-Hahn (down the Danube)” – at last finished!, “Not Art”- nearly finished 🙂 , “Celestial Harmonies” – which I’m still sipping, absorbing – it’s a big book like Cervantes “Don Quixote” is    Ovid “Tristia” and “Ex Ponto” – my delight to fully relax with    William Blacker “Along the Enchanted Way”    Ioana Pârvulescu “Life Begins on Friday” Bruce Simpson “Where the Outback Drovers Ride”   Julia Cameron “The Artist’s Way”  ♥  Herodotus “The Histories” – forever absorbing ♥

all of which I’m thoroughly enjoying. And for amusement two years ago there was “Asterix and the Normans”, “Asterix in Switzerland” and, “Asterix and the Cauldron”.

Oh, and I’m re-reading A Greek Matinée looking for errors in my grammar, spelling and refinement of ideas.

2018 April 16: This week, Aristophanes’s “Frogs”, Ovid’s “Metamorphoses”, marshmallow-reading, Marco Polo, and “Black Cats and April Fools” are put aside for Peter Esterházy’s “Celestial Harmonies”, an “unusual and remarkable book”. It stands at 846 pages – an epic story of conquest, tragedy, triumph and near destruction of a prominent aristocratic family in Hungary.

…..And now it’s June with Ovid’s Tristia . Ex Ponto

leap to Fossils to see what it meant to science when men working on foundations for an overhead road-pass, drew up ancient shale with a tiny limb bone of a really- ancient frog. 20200124 Fossil cores Plant Snail Fish Croc-vert 400 mauve 3
