for Thursday 11/23/17 (Posted on the 21st)

Thursday 11/16/17

Thursday 10/19/17 One for today, because it’s honey harvest season,two for the next two weeks because I’ll be on vacation (can you guess where?) and one for November 11th because I’ll still be on the returning plane and it’s “Indian Summer.”

Thursday 9/07/17, in recognition of the Wasatch 100 Endurance run which starts tomorrow, this is a tale from the world renown distance running Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico.

Tuesday 9/05/17 . . . because I as 75 miles out of town last Thursday before I realized I’d forgotten to post. Sorry!

Thursday 8/17/17 because there is a total solar eclipse next week, and a second entry (actually two tales) because I may not be back from eclipse chasing by next Thursday.

Thursday 8/10/17

Thursday 8/3/17

Thursday 7/20/17

and you can hear Robert Browning’s poetic version here:

. . . and a second tale here as there will not be a new post next week.
