Quote(s) For the First Sunday of March 2016

First, self started reading “The Wild Swans.”

Then she added a chapter to one of her four Hunger Games fan fics.

Then she began reading World of the Maya, by Victor W. von Hagen (the same copy which, as a 21-year-old, she brought with her to Chichen Itza)

p. 37, The Chapter on “The Lower Men”

Agricultural surplus provided time that was used in the building of temples, palaces, and roads.

Then she looked at how other WordPress bloggers were handling this week’s Photo Challenge, HARMONY.

Here’s one from girl astray:

“Waterfall Hunting in Putumayo”

When in Colombia, you must drink chicha.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Harmony 3: Hill House, Saturday Night

It was Bluegrass Night at the Hill House.

Self had to duck through the lobby: she left a terrible review about Hill House on Tripadvisor, and the lone staff on duty tonight was the same guy who checked her in.

The band tonight was Foxfire. The weather was terrible. Margo went with self.

As usual, no flash:

Chatting before getting started

Guitars lined up, just before the performance started.

The singers expressed sentiments like “I’m richer by far with a satisfied mind” and The “the wealthiest man is a pauper sometimes compared with a satisfied mind.” There were  songs like “Slaughterhouse Gulch” and another called “Pinebox Sailor”.

Most interesting evening!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

 

 

 

“The Wild Swans” Re-told by Amy Ehrlich and Illustrated by Susan Jeffers

Early in the morning the queen went into her marble bath and took three toads and kissed them. “Sit upon her and make her so ugly that her father will not know her,” she said. Then she bade Elise go for her bath. As the girl plunged into the water the first toad grasped her hair, the second her forehead, and the third her breasts. But when she arose, they had become three red poppies, for she was too good and too innocent for her witchcraft to have any power.
