Светлая память, F.D. Reeve

F.D. Reeve (September 18, 1928 - June 28, 2013)

   A writer, poet, academic, editor and Russian translator, Mr. Reeve showed us the power of language.

Mr. Reeve reflected on place and 
language in his essay,
"Literary Place."
It ends:
In a final sense, all writing, all painting, all music and all
art are only efforts to get closer to defining the one,
ultimate place where we suppose we'll know exactly 
who we are.

Mr. Reeve's interview with the New York Quarterly
left an indelible impression on me.
He will be missed.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
