My Blogs

I've set up more than one blog so I can put down thoughts on a number of topics. The one you are reading will be a good place to start because it will be a miscellany, and will nudge you if anything important is on one of the other blogs.

The SVG Blog will contain material that is specific to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and material (other than pictures) that is intended to go into the SVG Book.

The Social Evolution Blog will contain material that is relevant to my theory of the evolution of human social behavior, especially material intended to go into the book Einstein's God and the Science of Zen.

Diaryland will contain material that may be of interest to those who know us personally if it is interest at all.

I hope this makes sense and that you enjoy any blog you visit.

Zuni Story

Tony Hillerman, who writes mysteries based on cops in the Navaho tribal police, ends The Wailing Wind with a story from the Zuni--

Two young hunters were out and they saved a dragonfly stuck in mud. As is usual in these stories it offered them wishes. The first hunter said: I want to be the smartest man in the world. So be it, said the dragonfly, turning to the second hunter. I want to be smarter than the smartest man in the world, he said. So the dragonfly turned him into a woman.

That resolves the last problem in the novel.

Bronx Map

Bronx Map
Originally uploaded by Karlek.

This is a map of a section in the northern part of The Bronx where Robert Klein, the comedian, grew up. It was printed in the New York Times this morning (07 /19 /05) in conjnction with an article about Klein's boyhood. What the Times didn't know is that I grew up just off the upper right corner of the map. We might well have gone to the same High School since it was walking distance from both our homes.


Cleaning Up Sites

I put a copy of the index on the Ad-free ,mac site, and put links on all the sites that I could access that formerly had indecies on them. This is what the link says:

Message to the Reader: All Karl Eklund's sites are reachable through:

I Forgot

I noted that I relocated the index, but it didn'y occur to me that you might have forgotten its address. It is at:

Sorry about that

New Site Index

Actually the site index isn't exactly "new", but it is rewritten and some of the sites are in different places and it is in a different place. In particular it is on Apple's website, mac-dot-com, and it is in the "public" folder along with some other files that I wanted you to be able to read without ads. Some of the sites, that I don't intend to do much with, are still on servers that run a lot of ads.

I have been involved with that kind of housekeeping lately so I havent kept up with the blogging. I'll try to do better but sometimes it takes a while for ideas to solidify enough to articulate. That's the problem with a lot of blogs--it is so important for the bloggers to get their ideas up in words on the net that they just gush. That's OK too, but it doesn't offer much to chew on.
