Graceful Grafting

I started reading The Introduction to Graceful Labeling…If it says ‘introduction’ one should be okay, no? All I remember now is that caterpillars, and some lobsters, are graceful, but butterflies are not. It seems counter-intuitive. Intuition doesn’t care.

h/t: Graceful labeling

Of course trees are graceful. Proof:

Finger-licking Figgy Duff

Oh excellent figgy duff!

Bonus, from the book shelf at the inn:

Food for thought: Newfoundland children’s books.

Consider this: Economic nutrition!


I leave the island, well-fed and inspired in so many ways.

H/t: Song. Percy Bysshe Shelley

Teeming

Apparently it’s moose hunting season here in Newfoundland. I’m happy to hunt blueberries.

That’s not the only good thing here.

It’s always good when you spot a couple of these (especially when the ferry is teeming with people).

 This must be one of the best views in the world: a beach teeming with rocks.

Gigantic

British Natural History Museum display of beetles

H/T: Gigantic Goliath beetle.

We have had a humungous Family Fall Feast, all prepared in a frantic, gigantic cook-up. I have much to be thankful  for.

I marvel at the human capability for cognitive dissonance. 
My mind catches every phrase with gigantic in it.
This struck a sad chord:
I have finished the first Primo Levi book : If This Is a Man
” …within five minutes begins the distribution of bread, of bread-Brot-Broit-chleb-pain-lechem-kenyér, of the holy gray slab that seems gigantic in your neighbor’s hand and in your own so small you could cry.”
