New Feature

Life has been busy. I'm sure both our readers have noticed that I haven't been around for a week or so. Not only have I been occupied with, and at times overwhelmed by, the usual stuff: year-end school testing, eldest child convocating WITH DISTINCTION from university (having never spent a day in school in her life), procrastinating on editorial deadlines, washing dishes, pulling weeds, attending utterly pointless meetings...

I have also been reading the complete stories of Flannery O'Connor.

I reckon I ain't many words to describe how all she's affectin me. But only t' say that if I was ever to grow up, I wisht I could write like that.

It's like living on the set of O Brother, Where Art Thou? and loving every minute, even if you're too obtuse to understand some of the stories. And regrettably, I am. It's like my brain has R-U-N-N-O-F-T.

But the new feature is this: Flannery Quotation of the (Day/Week/Month), whatever tickles my fancy.
