A Poem about Parents
Theater Vs. Movies

This and That

A muse by any other name…
Apparently creative people need to personify the mysterious source of their ideas. Regular readers know I call her my muse. Here’s another, from a profile in The New Yorker:
“Ideas are almost like aliens trying to come into the real world, and we’re just pregnant with them.”
― Francis Pedraza, Invisible’s thirty-one-year-old C.E.O.

Yiddish Humor
Marjorie Gottlieb Wolfe has some funny holiday observations: How To Write For Yiddish Publications.

Feminist Icon
On Linked In, one of my contacts posted an item from The Female Lead, retweeting this event from 2017: VIDEO Kathrine Switzer Finishes Boston Marathon 50 Years After Being First Woman To Run. At 70, Switzer is an author and activist. She was clearly the spiritual mother of all the fine third-wave feminists I have been privileged to have in my life, including the one I married, and the fourth-wave feminists I raised.
