  • Dat So La Lee (Louisa Keyser) was a famous basket weaver of the Washoe Indian tribe in Nevada. She changed and refined the stitching technique of basketry to create a new shape of basket called DEGIKUP. It was a larger basket which curved in towards the top. If you Google the name LOUISA KEYSER, and click on IMAGES, you will see some beautiful examples of this extraordinary artist's work. She died in 1925.

  • John Ashbery uses the word "cimmerian" in his 22 page-long Poem called A WAVE, which is printed in his book, also titled A WAVE, published by Viking Press (New York) in 1984. It can be found on page 81. I will quote only a part of the 10-line-long sentence in which it appears:

    "...So always there is a small remnant

    Whose lives are congruent with their souls

    And who ever afterward know no mystery in it,

    the CIMMERIAN moment in which all lives, all destinies

    And incompleted destinies were swamped

    As though by a giant wave that picks itself up

    Out of a calm sea and retreats again into nowhere

    Once its damage is done."
