Provincial election day, and our choices are old school, slick Conservative machine or Right Wing, anti-intellectual racist homophobes. It's the illusion of choice, voters' style. Nary a mention of the environment, health care, education, social equity.

Villa Helena, a lovely French colonial building, and a pleasing guest house.

John Bohannan's pedagogical virtuosity, and his subtle way of slamming home the point that Arts are essential.. blows me away.

What is the historiography of "Jack Frost"? When we see crystallised vapour on glass, we say "Jack Frost was here". But who is he, where do we get his name from, which cultural traditions are involved in the historical trajectory that we simultaneously invoke and ignore when we refer to Jack Frost?

I think Jack Frost, like any other mythic character, is potent to think (with): for me, it's a n example of Wagner's obviation of symbols; a point of query: why is crystallised vapour male? But there is also a methodological lesson: just as I refer to Jack Frost without knowing his full story, so too might any member of any culture invoke local symbols without being able to expound any further.

In the end, besides being good to think, Jack Frost is also good to see.
