The Lydian Stones
I am going to be starting a little side project on the 22nd, for no better reason than that it is my birthday and I feel like giving you (yes, you) a present.
It will be in blog format, and so far it is proving to be highly enjoyable for me and, I hope, will be for you.
Many people will be involved, the living and the dead, and I hope it will add a site for poetry that is worthwhile.
So come up the garden steps with me! More news on this later on as the work progresses.
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.

Well, now...this is very exciting!ReplyDelete
Marly, I hate to criticize such an accomplished author on the use of language, but this isn't an announcement. It's a tease.ReplyDelete
(Also, just remembered that I'd forgotten something important..)ReplyDelete
One is not supposed to give away presents before they are ripe!
I hope so!
Thanks for the revenge tease! Something important...
wow! very intriguingReplyDelete
See there, Dave--Susanna likes a surprise!ReplyDelete
I am glad you have your spring hat on today... And the snow is melting here, hurrah!
I like teases, er, announcements of presents to come! I do that sometimes too. Looking forward to it, plus a birthday too...ReplyDelete
:-) Any game both the living and the dead can play is my kind of game.ReplyDelete
I shall go get my spade and my flashlight!ReplyDelete
Talk about a tease! I should have known an anonymous would come by...
We shall frolic!
I'll meet you at Northanger Abbey.
Intriguing. By the way, there is another surprise winging its way to you by post for your birthday.ReplyDelete
Oh. My. You are an organized woman!ReplyDelete
Not generally. But it so happens that I ran into something attractive and had it sent to you.ReplyDelete
