Things are happening in the world. Important things. The things below are not that important, really. But they are things. And they were, at one time or another, happening.
A lot of people take pictures with their phone. I am one of those people. Though I try not to call my phone a phone. I try to call it an astrolabe. I am mildly successful at this. If you ever wondered how to take better pictures with your phone (and by phone I mean astrolabe, and by astrolabe I mean an iPhone) then Apple’s made several small videos, in the shape of a phone screen, to help you understand how to better capture the world on glass.
Storyological. This week. An episode entitled:
In which we discuss:
The Debutante by surrealist adventurer hero person Leonora Carrington, anthologized in What Did Miss Darrington See, (originally published in 1936).
An Unborn Visitant by the real-life inspiration of Orlando and also the real-life person Vita Sackville-West, anthologized in What Did Miss Darrington See, (originally published in 1932).
We did a thing where we picked two stories from the same book. We do that sometimes.
Next week we will be in the United States of America. I will take a look under the hood while I’m there and see if I can spy what the trouble is.
Happy Friday, readers. And good luck.
