Playing Civilization

… genuine, pure play is one of the main bases of civilization.

Johan Huizinga, **** Ludens (Beacon Press, 1950, p. 5)


Southern Stew

When it got dark and we couldn’t pitch and hit anymore, we’d cook out in the yard.  We’d build a fire a get some crayfish out of the ditch that ran in front of our house, pop their legs off, and boil them with anything else we could find in the garden–potatoes, turnips, okra, tomatoes, whatever.  Of course, the pot didn’t have a lid, so we boiled and ate all sorts of bugs along with everything else.
