I was looking at some of my notebooks. I, too, often write the make and model of pen, what nib and the ink, if I know it. I, too, often write the first few lines of Jabberwocky.

I also write, If happy little bluebirds fly, above the clouds, then why oh why can't I?

Cob,

Americans and Brits have more in common than we may realize. Mr. Hood has pretty much described our entire winter here in NEW England.

I cannot say I am surprised, but I do think that Mr Hood could have made a splendid job of dreary January and soggy February too.

Of late I have become enamored with a Bertolt Brecht quotation:

Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.
We have a natural right to make use of our pens... - Voltaire
