Bauble

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 9:00 AM

"This time-defying preservation of selves,
this dream of plenitude without loss,
is like a snow globe from heaven,
a vision of Eden before the expulsion.
Mathematically demonstrable
but emotionally impossible,
it’s dangled just in front of us
like a bauble we can’t have
but can’t stop reaching for." 

— Judith Shulevitz on Siri Hustvedt in
The New York Times  Sunday Book Review
of March 31, 2019, under the headline
"The Time of Her Life."

A different self-symbolizing bauble appeared in this  journal on that Sunday.

A line for Letterman — "Bauble, Babel.  Babel, Bauble."

'The Tower of Babel,' a 1963 play by Arthur J. Morey with music by Robert A. Paul
