Online, all these posts showed up, including a return by my friend Justinian, a poet who blogs at Delight and Glory and Oddity and Light.

Love the "mole" photograph.

Is that from the South?

I'm out of town, but I will be able to cruise through a few of them before "I have" to walk on the beach.

I hate that I used an indefinite pronoun --

"them" is the offerings here.
