Food, culture, indigeneity, sustainability: TaIwan
It’s time for the harvest…a poem upon glimpsing the huge harvest moon tonight. Tonight a great golden moon rises above the black mountains Golden the tea in my cup Golden the yolk of the egg in this mooncake Golden my memories of you, Taiwan.
Taiwan’s southern tip has beautiful beaches and stretches of ancient fossilized corals populated with all manner of crabs, fish, mudskippers, and shellfish. Here are my nephew, niece, and my sister near O-luan-pi or the “Goose’s Beak” area at the very southern end of Taiwan. They are standing on an ancient seabed; when these Miocene corals […]
I’ve just returned from a short stint circumnavigating Taiwan with family, and we ate really well. Americans are not too crazy about glutinous texture dishes (that’s sticky-starchy, not wheat-based). But Asians adore gooey glutinous food in many forms: main dishes, desserts, even drinks. There is a little street-side joint with stools on the sidewalk just […]
The only place you will see the Met Gala compared to a 17th century tournament: James Mulraine
Last time I sat down to this the weather was horrible and the dog was ill, the wind howled and whispered on the sofa next to us, and it was a time for ghosts. So I started writing about this one, the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall in Norfolk, seat of the Townshend family. (c) […]
Last night this Royal portrait just sold at Revere Auctions in St Paul, Minnesota, for $4,500, within an estimate of $3,000 – 5,000. (c) Revere Auctions As Revere say in their catalogue entry, it’s a corridor portrait of King Henry IV, one of a set of Kings and Queens hung round the Long Gallery in […]
The Jordaens Van Dyck Panel Paintings Project UK Archival Research Team has published two significant additions to the literature around Van Dyck on the Project website this past fortnight. Last week we published Sir Kenelm Digby’s devastating critique of £880 worth of pictures that he bought from Van Dyck. In a 1655 Court case that […]
What a teacher thinks about when she walks her dog: Unfolding From the Fog
I stand at the number ten carousel at McCarren International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, dazed by the shininess of it, the glam. Hung from the ceiling, an antique yellow airplane advertises the Hacienda Hotel. Along the walls, huge screens flash images of Cirque de Soleil shows, all in sync. The silver baggage carousel matches […]
Here’s another repeat post, inspired by my travel plans. It first appeared September 23, 2016. I got my hair cut short for the first time in a lot of years and I have to say, I think it’s happy about it. I should explain. I had stick straight hair all of my life, the kind […]
I recently booked another flight to Las Vegas, which brought back memories. This one was first posted on September 27, 2016. Doesn’t it seem like a more innocent time? Last Thursday if you were on a plane to Vegas, you may have seen some people snoozing, some reading, and some playing video games. You […]
A restorer of typewriters shares stories about the machines she loves: myoldtypewriter
Some time ago I pulled out my Rheinmetall to type up some stuff, and I said to myself, “How sweet it is!” The typing was perfect. I love the way this thing rolls – serious surfin’ swagger. The typing was perfect until the ribbon stopped advancing mid-sentence. What!! I took the ribbon cover off and […]
Last weekend, I drove out from DC to West Virginia to attend the Spring Typewriter Jubilee at Herman’s. About 50 typewriter enthusiasts were getting together, and how could I say no to that kind of good times energy? I stopped by antique stores on my way out to West Virginia and saw lots of adding […]
I have some messy hobbies that junk up the house, and one of them is amateur typewriter repair. Some people garden or crochet, but I enjoy the sweet thrill of finding the fix that makes a broken typewriter sing again. I try not to collect typewriters, but a few have worked their way into my […]
