a fool in the forest

Epigraphs

  • A fool, a fool! I met a fool i' the
        forest,
    A motley fool; a miserable world!
    As I do live by food, I met a fool
    Who laid him down and bask'd him
        in the sun,
    And rail'd on Lady Fortune in good
        terms,
    In good set terms and yet a motley
        fool.

    As You Like It,
    Act II, Scene 7

    L'homme y passe à travers des
        forêts de symboles
    Qui l'observent avec des regards
        familiers.

    Les Fleurs du Mal,
    “Correspondances”

    [T]here is almost no subject-matter, and what little one can disentangle is foolish....
    One would call the style verbose, except that by definition verbosity is the use of words in excess of the occasion, and there seems to be no occasion.

    Yvor Winters,
    Forms of Discovery, Ch. 7

    I'm glad to hear you had such a good time, George -- good enough to make the pain of returning worthwhile. As usual, I'm exhausted just reading your itinerary.

    I wonder what Tony Hillerman says about the Anasazi terminology.

    If you need a reason for not staying abreast of everybody's weblog, Joho the Blog gives a good, all-purpose, permanent excuse.

    First of all, welcome back.

    On my trip to southern Utah last year, I too was more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of dining to be found. Especially the town of Springdale, just outside Zion National Park, offered some very fine restaurants, but also in smaller, more out of the way spots like Torrey, near Capitol Reef, we found some very excellent dining. The emphasis was definitely on southwest cuisine, but I'd have to call it haute southwest.

    Thanks for the excellent trip report. We are still expecting pictures.
