Please believe the punctuation!

This is a quote from the poet Muriel Rukeyser. I've been reading her book The Life of Poetry, which was first published in 1949. Basically she thought that poetry could become the "meeting-place" that would resolve the world's problems. I don't take poetry that far, but it's a nice thought. As is "Please believe the punctuation!", so it is now an option for my blog title. The editor in me is all giddy.

And now I should sleep. But I think I'm going to read Franny and Zooey.

P.S. Elder Sven is almost to Vienna now. Then a flight to Kiev. Then a train ride (we think) to Donestk. And my apologies to anyone who reads this and realizes I spelled that incorrectly. (I'm not sure if I did or not.)

Em dashes and en dashes really are two of life's simple pleasures. More the former than the latter. One of my favorite things is to read something where people use them correctly. Anyway, I like that quote too! ;)
