Saturday Good Reads

A classic film review of one of my favorite movies – Babette’s Feast. It’s Wallace Stevens over at The American Conservative and Samuel Taylor Coleridge at Englewood Review of Books. Nancy Rosback sings the Bad Old Woman Blues. Beautiful photos of wild horses in France. J of India heads westward, and Eva Cassidy sings about those fields of gold (and I like this version even better than Sting’s).

Some wonderful stuff this week. (And there's an Olympic cycling event this morning, and the British are favored to win. Why does this remind me of some novel?)

Thank you for mentioning the Gernika poem.

The images of the horses are beautiful. I just saw Thursday a show of Charlotte Dumas's photographs at the Corcoran. In addition to her project photographing the horses that pull the caissons at Arlington, the exhibit included her images of wolves, race horses, and wild dogs in Palermo. The latter were especially moving.

Keep cool this weekend!
