more noodges

 I still haven't found the name of the flappers in Swift's Book Three of Gulliver's Travels, but I did find the correct name of the country: Laputa, not Lakota. That's not too bad for not having read it for 65 years. Right now I have to dash off to meet a friend to wander around the AGO. I'm not at all educated when it comes to art. I knew an art critic who dismissed people like me, that is,  people who say "I don't know anything about art but I know what I like" when what they are really saying is "I don't know anything about art but I like what I know."  I have a daughter who is really knowledgeable and gifted and I would love to get inside her head to understand what she understands and to see what she sees. It doesn't work that way. No shortcuts.  SOW if I don't stop rambling I'm going to be late for my friend. No shortcuts. Of course, now I want to look up shortcuts and see where it comes from. Does anyone know? Off the top of your head? Anon,anon, sir.
