    the point Never say never Posted in books creativity culture education family ha ha health language Origins of the Specious Posted on May 19 2009 by Elaine The title of this post is the title of a book that I have just ordered from Amazon one of the authors of which I heard interviewed on NPR on my way back home today The authors website has a page on grammar myths that begins thusly and that is worth taking a look at The Living Dead The house of grammar has many rooms and some of them are haunted Despite the best efforts of grammatical exorcists the ghosts of dead rules and the spirits of imaginary taboos are still rattling and thumping about the old place It s no longer considered a crime to split an infinitive or end a sentence with a preposition for example but the specters of worn out rules have a way of coming back to haunt us In the interest of laying a few to rest let s dedicate to each a tombstone complete with burial service May they rest in peace According to the authors many of those complicated rules of proper grammar that I expended so much energy on learning and then teaching my 8th grade classes back in the 70s are no longer worth worrying about Well makes me no nevermind as someone somewhere used to say I ve always known that language evolves But is appears to be evolving faster than I I can t wait to read the book Patricia O Conner one of the authors appears on the Leonard Lopate Show around 1 20 P M Eastern time Click here on the third Wednesday of each month to hear Pat live She appears on the Leonard Lopate Show around 1 20 P M Eastern time If you miss a program click here to listen to a recorded broadcast Posted in blogging books culture education getting older language a good day for a poem Posted on March 6 2009 by Elaine While I was moving I sorted through some of the stacks of poetry that I had written over the years and pulled out a batch of short ones Perhaps Thursday will be the day of each week that I will post one of them I live in Pioneer Valley these days but I wrote this one back in the 70s when I lived in another valley I think one of the reasons I call this blog Kalilily Time is because of my memories of that past valley time Valley Time Easterly the winds tease the the sun toward morning brushing aside the easy showers of early summer clouds Time follows the way of the wind through this dawn misted valley filters through the blue unfoldings of fragile morning chicory flows through the slow green seekings of those low growing vines breathes honeysuckle and wildrose rain into the season s drifting light Westward the sun leaves the high horizon draping a

  • turnaround fantasy | Kalilily Time
    caped in scarlet velvet with eyes as green as spring mischief and legs as strong as the golden mare they rode The warrior ranged the ragged cliffs above a raging sea rescuing damsels in distress and returning ancient thrones to rightful heirs And when the moon was full the warrior would ride to the village and make music and laughter and even love And one one of those moonfull nights I asked the warrior What do you seek And the warrior answered I seek a knight in shining armor with eyes as daring as the autumn seas and hands as gentle as the brush of his stallion s silver mane A knight who rides the wooded hillsides and rain washed valleys rescuing damsels in distress and returning ancient thrones to rightful heirs Then in the startling shadows I saw a dark longing drown the mischief in her eyes as the warrior turned to face the moon copyright Elaine Frankonis This entry was posted in creativity culture dreams feminism language Magpie Tales myth and magic by Elaine Bookmark the permalink 4 thoughts on turnaround fantasy jinksy on March 26 2011 at 4 17 am said Clever bit of gender bending writing
