Sad to hear of the loss of radio legend Paul Harvey on Saturday. Harvey knew how to hide a surprise in his prose, and he knew how to deliver his comments so you'd have to listen. I think he's one of the reasons that I occasionally adopt a twist in my pronunciation when speaking expositorily - it gets the listener's ear perked up.
Lloyd Irving Bradbury had a post (Building Blocks) on February 12th, before Harvey passed away, with a great sentiment from the keen commenter. Bring a tissue when you go there to read.
And, it wouldn't hurt to add a pregnant pause
to one's soundtrack occasionally...
A note on the artwork - a post about the field work for this ocean painting is here.
