  2. Merisi, you are encouraging me to get back to that library to check out a volume by Emily D.

    Thank you!

    As always, you catch a particular pulse from Vienna.

    This evening in New York, I think of what the pulse might be in another historic city, Athens.

    Surely, there will be some posts from there that will give us a sensitive view of what it is to be in a cultural gem, at the same time that current history unveils itself.

    New York...it's summer hot, but not too much humidity yet.

  11. @ EG Wow,
    I liked the bouncy walk, then the breeze took hold of the girl's skirt ... ;-)

    @ Frances,
    many of Emily Dickinson's poems are online.
    I am reading a new biography of her, by Lyndall Gordon, “Lives Like Loaded Guns” (Virago 2010)
    fascinating!

    Athens, oh yes, 
modern times there: frankly, I am a bit confused by what's happening.
    Do they really think that other countries' citizens should pay more taxes so they can reelect and finance their corrupt system?

    @ A Brush with Color,

    P.S.:
    I was not able to access the blog yesterday.
    Kept getting "Bad request" - after 6 1/2 years, still a mysterious relationship with Blogger. ;-)
