My quiltsMy 2001 Grant ProjectSociety for the Protection and Preservation of Fruitcake

Thursday, December 12, 2002  
In case you're not one of the many I've been blathering on and on to -- the yearly search for information about Fruitcake is well underway. Today there will have been over 230 visitors in search of some crucial bit of fruitcake info. The Society for the Protection and Preservation of Fruitcake is, of course, a great resource for those in need of recipes and information. A great example of what the World Wide Web is all about, it is. In the process of getting some information for the reporter from the Sacramento Bee newspaper, I found out that I've been making fruitcake since 1982 and that the fruit involved ranges from 114 - 178 ounces. Now you know. Now go out and find good fruitcake! Stop laughing now!

In honor of Jeremy's first encounter with individual snowflakes.
The Onset

Always the same, when on a fated night
At last the gathered snow lets down as white
As may be in dark woods, and with a song
It shall not make again all winter long
Of hissing on the yet uncovered ground,
I almost stumble looking up and round,
As one who overtaken by the end
Gives up his errand, and lets death descend
Upon him where he is, with nothing done
To evil, no important triumph won,
More than if life had never been begun.

Yet all the precedent is on my side:
I know that winter death has never tried
The earth but it has failed: the snow may heap
In long storms an undrifted four feet deep
As measured again maple, birch, and oak,
It cannot check the peeper's silver croak;
And I shall see the snow all go down hill
In water of a slender April rill
That flashes tail through last year's withered brake
And dead weeds, like a disappearing snake.
Nothing will be left white but here a birch,
And there a clump of houses with a church.
