Saturday Good Reads

J of India is in Delhi, and when he travels, he takes photographs – wonderful photographs that are more like paintings. His journey is starting in “Raring to Go.” Then there’s a wonderful sestina poem by Maureen Doallas (and hear her read it). And for fun – two dancers display 100 years of fashion in less than two minutes. And a whole lot more.
