Notes


Eugene Mirabelli, who writes the posts on Critical Pages, has been busy completing another novel and, he says, "Doing all the things the publisher keeps asking me to do." So the frequency of new posts had fallen off. However, he's back writing posts again, despite his age.

Please feel free to wander back through what's here or click on one of the subjects in the tag cloud over there. We think you'll find something of interest. Information about Gene Mirabelli's distinguished novel, Renato, the Painter, is available at www.mirabelli.net


Stamp Out Starving Writers! Buy their books! Start by patronizing your local independent bookstore. Bookstores have lots of books and they'll be glad to help you find whatever you want. We mean books. They'll match you with a book. Or just wander amid the stacks of books and you're sure to find something interesting.

Sadly, the couple pictured here aren't taking advantage of the amazing number and variety of books at hand. But we hope you will.

We posted the picture below the day after the summer solstice. It’s a water color etching by William Blake called Ancient of Days. Ancient of Days is another name for God and here Blake has portrayed him as the architect of the universe. The phrase and what it calls to mind has inspired artists for generations. Blake may have had in mind these words from the Book of Daniel: I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.Good grief! The days are getting shorter!

A Change of Scene


If you've been here before you'll notice that we've made a few changes. Or maybe we should avoid responsibility and say that changes have occurred. We're not experts in HTML code and as we "improve" this website odd things happen, and if we begin to improve things at 8:00 in the evening we find ourselves still working and trying to undo our
improvements at 3:00 AM.
