The bad guys smell of garlic and onions? Is that so horrible? Implied racism aside (“their white eyes flashing dreadfully in their brown faces”), Jack, are you out of your mind? I love you, you know. But really – onions and garlic are good. It is perhaps not good to reek of them, but they are quite tasty and season meals in a lovely fashion. Good meals begin with garlic and onion.

(I am referring to The Last Battle, Chapter 3. Page 25 in the 1970 paperback edition.)

This is a crappy self portrait. My camera battery ran out right after I took this fuzzy specimen. However, it does beautifully illustrate the November “identity” theme. In case you can’t tell, it’s a library. Not my library, but one that I walk past occasionally. Sometimes I even check out things if we don’t have them in my county. And that red blob, sort of towards the middle of the picture? That’s my hat. I could make up some nonsense about how the reflection makes it almost look like I’m in the library, and about how I belong in a library. Just shelve me with the novels, please, and I’ll rest easyPosted by Picasa
