The Etruscan | Linda Lappin
post image

“The road to the tombs skirted a field of shrivelled sunflowers. An army of nodding heads on stalks, bowed and blackened, awaiting harvest. There were no houses out this way... Here & there on a hilltop, a dead oak or cypress punctuated the empty sky where hungry crows perched low.... I had come to this remote corner of Italy to research Etruscan sites.“

Collected Poems | Robert Bly
post image

Robert Bly, Leaping Poet, has died. Writes J. Hirshfield: his “works carry lanterns of bioluminescent perception & hold music alchemical and chthonic, the heart's broken-open suffering and radiance.“
--It is a cold and snowy night. The main street is deserted.
The only things moving are swirls of snow.
As I lift the mailbox door, I feel its cold iron.
There is a privacy I love in this snowy night.
Driving around, I will waste more time. RB

“The world is too rich to be eaten. One sits in a whirl at one‘s desk thinking of drawing, writing, walking in the woods.“ - an eye-opening & illuminating read.

The Etruscan | Linda Lappin

I couldn't let November slip by without paying homage to Harriet and her count in The Etruscan --- eggs, pomegranates, boars are all symbols of rebirth in the novel, a gothic tale set in 1922....

Katherine's Wish | Linda Lappin

“She considered herself among these possessions: a woman traveling by train, her bag stuffed with cigarettes, pills for headaches, laundry lists, a pencil & notepad, a blood-stained handkerchief, a rapidly depleting supply of French francs, and a small traveling clock ticking the minutes away.“ #bookspin #womenwriters #audiobook #histfic
