Salute, Mr. Graves

Today was the birthdate of a favorite author, Robert Graves. Long ago I made his The White Goddess a kind of primer. If I'd had leisure and options, I would have been a student of archaeology and myth.

Here one can listen to him speak about that amazing tome.

Perhaps tomorrow evening I will revisit his poems that moved me enough to have me cart them across miles and decades. Tonight I've only time enough to give him a nod. He knows all the myths and their answers, now. How satisfied he must be...
