It's a good workout for your brain! Branton Hills had such a man, to whom such rigidity was as annoying as a thorn in his foot. I think that I shall only try to bargain for what is in the cards. Supposing that that famous Spaniard, landing upon Florida's coral strands, had found that mythical Fountain of Youth; what a calamity for mankind! Many a living, blossoming branch all around us, and this solitary dry twig, with a tag hanging from it, on which you will find : 'Branton Hills ; A twig too lazy to grow! What dark daubs of filth by avaricious crooks! An uneventful plot backed solely by themes is a little underwhelming, but not when you think about the painstaking effort it took Wright to, well, write, sans the letter E he used it 4 times, but I never saw it for some reason. It's a very dated written in 1939 and set well before that book and carries the same sensibility. Ox cart against aircraft; oil lamps against arc lights! Now Pris- cilla was not a girl who found morbid curiosity in any such a public spot; but, still, an odd, uncanny sort of thrill, — almost a chill, in fact, — was urging, urging a slow walk toward that car.
I'll post about it in my Friday Things post at www. Towards its conclusion war starts abroad towards Paris actual fighting missing from story. But to whom could Youth look for so big an outlay as a library building would cost? That good old schoolday, now so long past! Our girls, though, did not. Sales of the Wetzel version numbered only 50, out of a few hundred printed. Gadsby said not a word; slowly strolling down a path amidst thousands of gladioli; around a turn, and up a path, along which stood pots and pots of fuchsias, salvias and cannas ; and to a cross- path, down which was a big flat pansy patch, tubs of blossoming lilacs, and stiff, straight carnations.
Such an unthinking custom is al- most a panic, and panic is but a mild form of in- sanity. Kathlyn stood amongst groups of botanical fossili- zations, with Gadsby not far away, as this studious young woman told school pupils how our common plants of today through various transitions in form, show a kinship with what now lay, in miraculously good condition, in this big Hall; and Julius told staring groups how this or that fossil did actually link such animals as our cow or walrus of today with original forms totally apart, both in looks and habits. But, though Gadsby's words did sound as though a grown man wouldn't want such a thing, that wasn't saying that a young boy or girl wouldn't ; and with this surprising possibility ranking in young minds, many a kid was in an anti-soporific condition for parts of many a night. I might, during a long day. Individual threads asking for direct critique, even as minimal as a single line of dialogue, will be removed. But I said, 'All right; I am a cry-baby! At first word of such a thought, Gadsby was totally dumb, from an actual impossibility of thinking that any man, bringing up such a bill, wasn't plumb crazy! We are in every story ever written, hundreds of thousands of times! But that baby chin was straining up, and a pair of baby arms was pulling, oh, so hard; and, in a sort of coma, big, pompous, grouchy Councilman Simpkins took that hanging ribbon! Now Gadsby, who was, as I said, a gay Lothario in his own youth, saw right off what was coming, and sat back, waiting. And this restriction on numbers, of course taboos all mention of dates.
And, as I think of it, a human mind could, and should go through just such a ransacking, occasionally; for you don't know half of what an accumulation of rubbish is kicking about, in its dark, musty corridors. Now I am going to boost our famous Organization again, by stating that a boy from its ranks, Frank Morgan, was put in; for it was a hobby of Gadsby to put Branton Hills boys in Branton Hills Municipal jobs. It's nothing but a duplication! It is a city of hu- ttia ns; animals, if you wish, but with a gift from On High of a brain, so far apart from all dumb animals as to allow us to talk about our public af- fairs calmly and thoughtfully. Some of it is cute, some is even motivational, but a lot is syrupy and sickly sweet, which to be fair was the way of storytelling back then. Poems written in the shapes of things are called Concrete poems. And, as you thought of it I'll call it, — now wait; — what shall I call it? It says: — 'In a wild swaying dash down Broadway last night at midnight, past-Council- man Antor's car hit a hydrant, killing him and Madam Antor instantly. Finally a summary: brainy, quick to scan, good to say you got to study it but don't plan to find big amounts of joy.
But, of all sights, I don't know of any with such drawing ability for kids as just such a carnival lot. That awful condition which a fa- mous military man in command of a division, long ago, said was synonymous with Satan and all his co- horts! But, had Gadsby so much as thought of such an action, his Organization would quickly laugh it to scorn. Lucy is coming upstairs, now. That's fine - the plot actually felt fresh to me, in contrast to every dystopian book in Walmart's bargain bin. What a frail thing ordinary mail is! It is for only wild animals. If you're wondering just how tough that is, my first sentence there had 15 of them.
Mary, bring your pup; I'm going along. But though Marian had always had good clothing, coming from a family who could afford it, no tot, in all history, had so glorious an outfit as that which about all Branton Hills' population saw on that platform, amidst flags, bunting and our big Municipal Band. And to whom can a child look, but us adults? Julius was of a studious turn of mind, always poring through books of information; caring not what kind of in- formation it was, so long as it was information, and not fiction. Now an airport must occupy a vast lot of land, so cannot stand right in a City's shopping district; but finally a big tract was bought, and right in back of tiny Marian's back yard! He was brought up by his aunt and uncle after surviving the war. If you will tour Asia, Yuca- tan, or parts of Africa and Italy, you will find many sad ruins of past kingdoms. So, to summarise: really long, but really good.
And it wasn't so far off. Pos- sibly a plan will turn up toward both of us living down our past, and our sorrow. I read a book that people of that time thought was not possible. Wright accomplished this feat — to prove it could be done. And who do you think was running for Council, now? Now, you know that all animals can't find room in this orthographically odd story ; so, if you visit Lucy Zoo, you'll miss a customary inhabitant, or two. It took Krishnamurthy three years and six months to write - it would probably take us about the same time to read it not withstanding having to learn a new language. With about fifty girls collaborating, all districts had this most gracious aid; and a girl would not only watch and guard, but would also instruct, as far as practical, any such tot as had not had its first school- ing.
The author is entitled to it, in order properly to explain his work. May, with its blossoms, birds and balmy air! Kathlyn was radiantly happy; and John, our famous organist, was as happy with only charming Sarah Young at an upright piano, as any organist in a big choir loft. The arbitrary rules of these games have also been used by serious writers to produce ideas for poems and stories - some examples are given below. A patrolman has put in an alarm! Using only his lucid mind and one eye, he began working on his memoir, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. It not only paid for all acts which his Organization couldn't put on, but it was found that a big fund for man a day's musi- cal visitations, was on hand. Naturally a High School boy has not a man's qualifications; nor has a High School girl womanly maturity. Many minds of varying kinds will long for an opportunity for finding out things not ordi- narily taught in school.
