I Like Hanging with Smart People. Here’s One.
Some you that hang around here are smart. Some of you are just waiting for me to totally lose it and reveal the secret of who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb.
I had moment of zen today when a former colleague let it slip that he launched a blog based on my encouragement. I paid it forward.
Ed is a smart guy. He reads books and goes to art exhibits.
I wonder if James Luna and Annie Dillard have ever met. … My mind stretched: Why in the world would an artist think these stones talk? It also reminded me of one of my favorite essays, “Teaching a Stone to Talk” by Annie Dillard. She describes a man whose life mission is to care for a stone and teach it to talk. Two artists in different parts of the world with the same idea.
Ed has a big job with University of Illinois at Springfeild (UIS). Ed is one of those that knows Barry O’Bomber personally.
Like me, you probably don’t have any attachment to UIS, but Ed writes in such a way that you wish you did. He’s in my blogroll as The UIS Community. Drop in and tell him I sent you.
That would be the smart thing to do.
