Between Sunset and River

Apologies that I’ve had to leave so many conversations hanging – both here and at other places. I am reading – and hoping to get back to everyone next week, after the Historical Materialism conference.

Much to say… soon…

    I pop in here once a day to see what words of wisdom you’re sharing. I know you’re traipsing around the globe at the moment, sharing wise words with other wise folk, but have you a moment to shed light on something that’s been puzzling me? What’s with the ‘sunset and river’? And the significance of the prickly thing is? There’s always some tricky, witty meaning behind the titles of your posts and choice of images… so, if you’d like to share…

    Hey Lynda – the title is a reference to a Nabokov poem 🙂 – and the prickly thing is an echidna – an alter-ego, all balled up, in defensive mode (if you look very closely, you can see the face peeking out from behind the spikes) – preparing for the trip 🙂

    Wow, what an amazing picture. It looks like a sea urchin, but I presume one wouldn’t be holding one of those in one’s hands.

    lol – yeah, these are wonderful little beasts – Australian porcupine-ish creatures 🙂 I rather like them as alter-egos 🙂

    Congratulations on your interview, by the way 🙂 I’m currently waiting on the outcome of one – hoping to know, one way or the other, very soon… (Thus the lack of substantive posting lately – too nervous to think! 🙂 )
