Evanston: title change; 'Hallelujah'

        Should you have reason to check past entries, you will find that ‘A Modern Myth’ is now ‘A Slice of Life’.  Much better.  I wish I had thought of it, but I didn’t.  Steve Earley described the story that way in an email.  Knowing a good thing when I read it, I promptly stole it.  As some of you will know with that title it was run by Sailing Anarchy.  You'll need to scroll down. I thank Steve for the title and Scot for enabling the piece to reach a much wider audience.
        I continue to like ‘the slice of life’ and have included it in the fiction page of the main site.


        Perfect summer weather in the upper flatlands caused me to take a long walk along the lake yesterday.  To the north white sails on small boats contrasted with dark blue water.  I sort of remember than I like to sail.  I definitely should do it again sometime.


        I’ve written of Leonard Cohen here many times since his death in late 2016.
        Last evening I happened across a video of a great live performance of ‘Hallelujah’.
        I also watched again the perfect video of ‘The Joke’.  Even if you watched the first time I mentioned it, it is worth viewing again.
