"Like the study of science and art, accounts of historical events can be intrinsically fascinating. But they have a wider significance. I believe that people are better able to chart their life course and make life decisions when they know how others have dealt with pressures and dilemmas---historically, contemporaneously, and in works of art. And only equipped with such understanding can we participate knowledgeably in contemporary discussions (and decisions) about the culpability of various individuals and countries in the Second World War. Only with such understanding can we ponder the responsibilty of human beings everywhere to counter current efforts at genocide in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia to bring the perpetrators to justice."
"...we humans are the kinds of animals who learn chiefly by observing others---what they value, what they spurn, how they conduct themselves from day to day, and especially, what they do when they believe that no one is looking."
----Howard Gardner, from The Disciplined Mind, published in 1999

Honey, We Redheads Always Could Accessorize; or, More Things to Look At

I've been working on a post since last week, and making slow progress for various reasons; hence, some visuals, as the second installment of "Crayfish Park" is also slow in coming. (Sorry! I want to know what happens as much as you!)
Thank you for coming by, dear reader. It's always good to see you. I'll talk with you soon.
