Cultural freedom is never absolute, of course, and the Western tradition itself, from the Athenians to the present, struggles mightily with the line between freedom and order. In the Muslim world, that struggle is more fierce and lasting, and it will show itself in far more than burnt flags and overrun embassies.

I never read blogs. Maybe I should widen my horizons. Thanks for the links!

Where have you been? :)

Incidentally, those of you who've already read Glow may remember a mention of Linnaeus' horologium florae or flower clock. This weekend the New York Times' Michael Tortorello has published a wonderfully thorough article on that subject, in which I am briefly quoted.

Poetry Kept My Patient Alive
By Ruth H. Livingston May 23, 2015 2:25 pm


A poet waits for the light

Waits for the night,

Waits for the night’s lights (the stars).

A poet waits for divine madness.

> > > . . .

If life be enemy and death, a friend

Living, drudgery, till being and non-being blend

Can all we hope for is time to end

That we may be at peace.


> > > . . .

With the setting sun, past the rising moon

Beyond the spinning earth, April, May, June

We are tomorrow on its way …
