This is about language, and memories, and subtleties.
In 2006 there was a big conference in Albuquerque, maybe the largest of the Live and Learn Conferences that Kelly Lovejoy organized for several years in a row, in those days.
The week before, something happened that caused me to add to one of my talks, "Big Noisy Peace." I went to a funeral. There are some more notes here: one week to the conference, and an unexpected day
Following that, I added this to the notes for one of my talks. Usually I work from outlines, but this poured out and I've kept the punctuation, line breaks and emphasis I had added in the word file from which I gave that presentation:
Lillian Jones visited. Lillian was Wrensong on AOL, best homeschooling.org, involved with the HSC conference for years, and she was asking me why the King James Bible was such a big deal to some people. We talked about several aspects, but I said it was written poetically, and in simple, short native English words. That was Friday, a week and a half ago. The Monday after that I went to a Catholic funeral. I took notes. I write, even in church. Always did.You can listen to the sound file of that talk here, or download it free:
