new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Sounds fascinating. Where do I pay?
Elisabeth,It's a free ride for readers!http://weeklyhubris.com
They say good things come in threes. Thanks for the links to Diana Farr Louis's review of Michael Pollan's "Omnivor's Dilemma", for Helen Noakes's piece on agent provocateurs, and--saving the best for last--your own 'tonsorial lecture', a poem that had me laughing in recognition, remembering with pleasure the charming eccentricities of a land I once briefly lived in, and loved. Sign me up for the Weekly Hubris mag! Nice photo, by the way.
Wonderful — but as much as I admire his shop, no way am I getting close to Nick the barber.
Vassilis,love the poem and Kazantzakis quote! I once visited his beloved Crete & his grave in Iraklion."Weekly Hubris" is my kind of magazine!
MEMO TO ALL NEW SUBSCRIBERS OF THE WEEKLY HUBRIS: WE WILL NOT REST UNTIL MASS MEDIA SKULLDUGGERY HAS GONE THE WAY OF YORICK! Annie,I'm glad my little clipping brought back pleasant memories of Hellas. As for you, Mr. Michaelian, when was the last time you got close to any barber, let alone one as staccato scissoring as Nick the Greek? And speaking of Greeks, Conrad, I never knew you'd paid homage to Kazantzakis by visiting his grave. I've never been there shame!) but I've seen pictures of his grave--as simple as the man was complex, and am reminded of the time my wife and I visited the grave of the wonderful poet and songwriter Nikos Gatsosin Asea, Arcadia. Nothing but a plain wooden cross and a plain marble plaque marking the final resting place of a great man.Thanks you all for responding!
