This is another gorgeous painting by Jonathan Koch, called Cabbage, Potatoes, Shallot, Carrot, Parsley.
The random connection: I have 3 poems in this issue, and there’s a cabbage in one of them. All three poems respond to paintings, and the cabbage is in La Fruitiere by Childe Hassam.
Tonight is the “Supermoon,” but, as this PBS.org article warns us, don’t call it that. And don’t expect it to cause natural disasters. By chance, I recently looked again at Moonstruck, which has certainly got a supermoon in it. And you might also recall the comic supermoon from Bruce Almighty. Cher is really good in Moonstruck. The moon is the queen of the sky.
I hope the skies are clear tonight where you are, and where I am, so we can all see the really big full moon very close to earth.
Two-Day Old Irish blessing:
May the moon rise up to meet you smack in the face, and may you enjoy your leftover corned beef and cabbage. (Hey, it’s Slattern Day in the blog. Did you expect me to cook up something new?)
