blogger is slowly whittling away my ability to blog... from home... their upgrades are requiring higher versions of explorer than i'm able to load on this old imac... slowly slowly getting squeezed out of the picture... to log in to the control panels i've got to pull some roundabout maneuvers... through the back door... but for how long... i've noticed that a number of the newer blogs i might want to read also do not show up for me in any readable form... some show up with all their text stretched down the right side of the screen... a long mousey tail of tiny single words...

Ms. Block, 42, writes in a style that she says is influenced by Greek myth, the magical realism of Gabriel García Márquez and the modernist poetry of T. S. Eliot and H. D. Her stories abound with sudden transformations, fairies, genies and ghosts. ... and she does it really well... remind me to read some more of francesca lia block
