What's New - Feb 1
Did you say "rabbit rabbit" this morning?
After writing about the legend surrounding the good luck charm "rabbit rabbit" in the post "What the Hare With All the Rabbits" I don't think it matters much, as it has changed quite a bit from its original form and purpose.
There are two book reviews this week. The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura which explains the philosophy behind tea and the rituals surrounding them and The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell by Robert Dugoni which is a fictional account of a boy growing up with ocular albinism.
I began working on a biography for John Jacobs for the www.everydaypatriot.com blog but became overwhelmed by the sheer number of men named John Jacobs that had their lives uprooted during WWII. I wrote about it in the post "In Memory of John Jacobs".
Unfortunately, I still have the backlog of prints to be created and because the weather is promising to be beautiful for the next couple of days, the backlog will likely increase.
But that is ok, right? You can never have too many pictures.
