Sunday morning, October 21, he anchored, apparently more to thewest, and after having dined, landed. He found but one house, from whichthe inhabitants were absent; he directed that nothing in it should betouched. He speaks again of the great beauty of the island, even greaterthan that of the others he had seen. "The singing of the birds," he says,"seems as if a man would never seek to leave this place, and the flocks ofparrots which darken the sun, and fowls and birds of so many kinds and sodifferent from ours that it is wonderful. And then there are trees of athousand sorts, and all with fruit of their kinds. And all have such an odorthat it is wonderful, so that I am the most afflicted man in the world not toknow them."They killed a serpent in one of the lakes upon this island, which LasCasas says is the Guana, or what we call the Iguana. He was said to have been seen near the french war office after the declaration of war, undoubtedly he and a friend had a summer home very near what was afterward the Hindenburg line. Well at any rate he was very pleasant and very amusing. He it was who was the first to commercialise the douanier Rousseau檚 pictures. He kept a kind of private art shop. It was here that Braque and Picasso went to see him in their newest and roughest clothes and in their best Cirque M茅drano fashion kept up a constant fire of introducing each other to him and asking each other to introduce each other. Then suddenly, without warning, all this love and happiness and possession became too much for Caro攕he dropped the brush and the scented hair, and burst into passionate tears. 在线观看 有码 制服 中文|午夜剧院|欧美成人 Chapter 4 The hundred hills of Atlanta are not all crowned with factories. On one, toward the west, the setting sun throws three buildings in bold relief against the sky. The beauty of the group lies in its simple unity:鈥攁 broad lawn of green rising from the red street and mingled roses and peaches; north and south, two plain and stately halls; and in the midst, half hidden in ivy, a larger building, boldly graceful, sparingly decorated, and with one low spire. It is a restful group, 鈥攐ne never looks for more; it is all here, all intelligible. There I live, and there I hear from day to day the low hum of restful life. In winter's twilight, when the red sun glows, I can see the dark figures pass between the halls to the music of the night-bell. In the morning, when the sun is golden, the clang of the day-bell brings the hurry and laughter of three hundred young hearts from hall and street, and from the busy city below,鈥攃hildren all dark and heavy-haired,鈥攖o join their clear young voices in the music of the morning sacrifice. In a half-dozen class-rooms they gather then,鈥攈ere to follow the love-song of Dido, here to listen to the tale of Troy divine; there to wander among the stars, there to wander among men and nations,鈥攁nd elsewhere other well-worn ways of knowing this queer world. Nothing new, no time-saving devices,鈥攕imply old time-glorified methods of delving for Truth, and searching out the hidden beauties of life, and learning the good of living. The riddle of existence is the college curriculum that was laid before the Pharaohs, that was taught in the groves by Plato, that formed the trivium and quadrivium, and is to-day laid before the freedmen's sons by Atlanta University. And this course of study will not change; its methods will grow more deft and effectual, its content richer by toil of scholar and sight of seer; but the true college will ever have one goal,鈥攏ot to earn meat, but to know the end and aim of that life which meat nourishes. In late February, I flew to California for a few days to be with Frank Aller, Strobe Talbott, and Strobes girlfriend, Brooke Shearer. We met in Los Angeles at the home of Brookes extraordinarily welcoming and generous parents, Marva and Lloyd Shearer, who, for many years, wrote Americas most widely read celebrity gossip column, Walter Scotts Personality Parade. Then in March I went up to Boston, where Frank was living and looking for work as a journalist, to see him and Strobe again. We walked in the woods behind Franks house and along the New Hampshire coast nearby. Frank seemed glad to be home, but still sad. Even though he had escaped the draft and prison, he seemed caught in the throes of a depression, like that which Turgenev said only the very young know and which has no apparent reason. I thought hed get over it.
