It’s the first of the month, so I have a new Hot Flash on the Hot Flash page. Does anybody read these? Should I continue this monthly feature, or drop it? Don’t say, “Do it if you enjoy it.” I’m askin’ you, “Who’s on first?”
I’m still harping on LIFE OF PI. I’ve almost finished re-reading it, and I’m wondering if I’ll turn to the beginning and re-read it again. Maybe I’ll wait until I’ve seen the movie and then re-read it again.
At any rate, in honor of the movie, here is a link to WWF’s page on tigers. That World Wildlife Fund, not World Wrestling Federation. Wrestle with a tiger, believe me, you do not want to do.
Here is a Wiki on the strange preponderance of Richard Parkers involved in shipwrecks, real and fictional.
Here is a link to the Louisville Zoo, where I took my tiger pictures.
And here — because, after all, why not? — is a link to the text of William Blake’s “The Tyger”.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Who would you like to be shipwrecked with?
