Back from Thailand and Cambodia...


  1. Ah-ha! A light has come on at The Palace. The Queen has returned. Now all her subjects await news of her adventures in distant kingdoms. She has been sorely missed.

  2. What a lovely green picture. I must say it suits you, and I too am waiting at your feet for the stories to unfold.

  3. Just e-mailed you, Marly, with most of the news. Nice blog you have here.

  4. Hey Lew--

    Thanks! I'll look through my tower of unread mail....

  5. Great picture, Marly! Looks lush...


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
