  • Umm... bilby, I'm sure you didn't mean it to come out the way it did--in fact you appear to have meant just the opposite--but your comment is worded in such a way that implies the "present company" does not have an "exquisite and authentic command of the English language."

    Further... please! I'm drowning in subjective generalizations!

    But it's nice you like Thoreau.

  • Wonderment and generosity of heart. Well-said, bilby. I agree.

  • I think he was an apple-sucking cowboy. He reminds me of a time when - present company excluded of course - Americans had an exquisite and authentic command of the English language. But he walked through the lands and described what he saw with a wonderment and generosity of heart that is rarely found in modern writings. I very much enjoyed reading his nostalgic voyage into appledom.

  • "There is a wild apple on Nawshawtuck Hill in my town which has to me a peculiarly pleasant bitter tang, not perceived till it is three-quarters tasted. It remains on the tongue. As you eat it, it smells exactly like a squash-bug. It is a sort of triumph to eat and relish it."
    - Henry David Thoreau, 'Wild Apples'.
