THERE would be no glorious bursting forth of nature at Easter-time without the cyclic journey of the Sun. The Sun-cycle ushers springtime into the world above the equator, and the ancients regarded this as the reincarnation season of the year. The celebration of Ēoestre or Ostara is an old pagan festival, and is the origin […]

My notes on Burawoy, M. (2002). Public sociologies and the grass roots, speech to SWS Wrightsville Beach, February 7, 2002.

Hatboy's Hatstand

The Book Hammock

I just can’t explain how wonderful this book is. I didn’t realize I enjoyed Greek Mythology so much. In The Rose, Lia, Lord Godwick’s great granddaughter is gifted a rare, one of a kind wine goblet, decorated with a very specific rose, on her 21st birthday. That same night she also meets August Bowman, a […]
