    I'll put Jason Goodwin The Janissary Tree on my booklist and see how it goes. I've only been to Istanbul once but was completely smitten with the richness and texture of the place.
    I don't read much non-fiction but am now tearing through The Girl Who Played With Fire Stieg Larsson so I do enjoy a
    mystery. Thanks Jaime!

    Ahahaha, how can you resist him? Those poems are fantastic.
    I'm just a student right now and have always been a poetry lover, but calling myself a poet might be a bit presumptuous...
    I do occasionally write for class or when the mood strikes me, but usually it is either lighthearted or deeply emotional-- so I only write in extreme cases or in times of dire boredom.

    Champagne indeed!

    I do not know e e cummings very well, but I must check him out now-- what a fantastic poem!
    Have you read the Spoon River Anthology?

    Aramis-Cool Blend sounds interesting also. And that No.1 by Strellson is not coming to the U.S :0(

    Aha! William Carlos Williams must be popular on Basenotes .
    One of my *new* favorite poems! We were studying its connection to Hemingway in my english class the other day, and then I stumbled upon Saxifrage's name. I love the subtlety of the poem-- it says so little but manages to speak volumes. Are you familiar with the poem?

A Picture from the blue

by JaimeB on 25th March 2015 at 03:02 PM
A friend of mine was on a fight to Dubai recently and noticed one of the cabin crew was wearing a name tag with the same family name on it as mine. He took the man's picture and emailed it to me remarking on the strange coincidence. Of course, the flight attendant was from the same part of Spain, Galicia, as my parents, but it led me to think about some things I hadn't considered for a long time.

Here's what I wrote to the friend who emailed me that picture:

Thanks for

Packing scents for a trip (from a post to the Men's Fragrance board)

by JaimeB on 4th February 2015 at 03:48 PM
My history of packing fragrances to take on a trip has changed quite a bit over the years. Early on, I packed quite a variety. Once I went on a week-long cruise and packed a different day and evening scent for each day, and then threw in a couple more, in case I changed my mind.

Homeland Security and TSA regulations soon put an end to that kind of extravagance. For a while, I tried to pack more carefully. I made sure to put scents into checked luggage, still taking at least four or

November in Europe, Paris Part One

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 08:06 PM
When we returned from our trip to Europe toward the middle of November, all four of us were sick; it was some cold that was going around Italy that got all of us. We all got sick at different times, one of our traveling companions first, who later ended up with walking pneumonia, and I was the last, but our complete recovery took a couple of weeks. Of course, we’re all perfectly fine now.

The trip was glorious. We started with three days in Paris.

We arrived in Paris on

November in Europe, Paris Part Two

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 08:06 PM
Returning by the rue St-Jacques, we passed the Lycée Louis le Grand, the setting for Judith Rock’s historical mystery series set in the then-Jesuit seventeenth-century school. Rock's sleuth, Jesuit scholastic Charles du Luc, is one of my favorite literary detectives. Back through the Île de la Cité and along the Right Bank quays, we trudged the rest of the fifteen-and-a-half miles we had slogged that day. That evening, on our way back to the Place des Vosges for our dinner reservation at La Place

November in Europe, Rome

by JaimeB on 3rd February 2015 at 08:05 PM
Early the next morning with bags repacked we were on our way to Rome. The Lufthansa flight from Paris to Frankfurt was pleasant and polite; we were amply fed and cosseted, in good German fashion. In Frankfurt, we were to connect with two friends flying in from home and continue to Italy for the rest of our trip. Their plane was late, we were waiting for them in the wrong airport lounge, and we practically ran through the large, unfamiliar Frankfurt airport to catch up with them and find our gate,
