Hecate and the Oscars lend a touch of warmth

Posted on February 25, 2013


Time for the weekly Michigan Picture from Babs – and she is bored with snow. Enough winter pictures, she writes. This is Hecate waiting to watch the Oscars.

I expect Hecate was somewhat disdainful of most of the hoopla. She probably approved of Ang Lee’s Best Director award for Life of Pi–although it would be just like her to credit the movie’s excellence to the tiger.

Miss Sadie and the Cowboy do not keep up with movies much. They prefer to be outdoors unless it’s suppertime. They are fond of storybooks, though, and the recent spate of snow and ice has given us lots of time to read. Recommendations from the Writing Studio and Bait Shop: Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior and Louise Erdrich’s Round House.

Now we’re starting on Lincoln, Little Crow, and the Beginning of the Frontier’s End, by Scott W. Berg. I can tell already that it will be both very good and very difficult to read.
