Is that a statue of Queen Æthelflaed?
Because pointing out another's insignificance is always so uplifting.
I thought the statue of the woman looked saxon. But now I see EM has labeled the photo 'Joan of Arc.' Oops. I'm an idiot.
Being reminded of one's insignificance when being concerned about forces that have a direct impact upon one's life is a bit like being told that other people suffer much worse than you is supposed to cheer you up! ;-)
I'm busy reading Mark Twain's book on Joan of Arc. Must be something joan of arcy in the winter air here ...
Just watched Ken Burns' documentary on Mark Twain yesterday. So, something Mark Twainy is also in the air.
Made me want to get his book, "Following the Equater."
Still haven't decided which is worse. Our insane clown president, or The Deep State intent on getting rid of him. Regardless, one couldn't ask for better entertainment. Albeit, I don't see this movie ending very happily.
Loved the opera. And yeah, what did happen to Ward Churchill? I had forgotten he was the author of 'Little Eichmans' -- a phrase I've used many times. Guess he ended up on the scrapheap of those who threatened the empire.
