  • Posted What are words worth? to Charlie's Diary
    Someone told me last weekend that I'm a good listener. My reaction to this was both to be flattered and to be rather surprised -- my inner self is convinced it talks far too much and to far little avail....
  • Commented on Of Blood and Honey, And Blue Skies from Pain
    Hi, Stina! With my historian hat on, I was pretty impressed by your books, and in particular by your ear for the rhythms of speech and thought. It's a deep, deep problem whose origins go way back -- further than...

  • Posted Testing, testing to Charlie's Diary Test Bed
    So, here I am in the Big Wide World of well-known blogs. The oxygen is thin out here, I'm told, and the exposure high. I have my big girl boots on (well, they're slip on wedge sandals, but you get the idea), but I'm still not sure I'm ready for this. Hi, I'm Kari, by the way, and this is by way of a test run. My blogging experience runs mainly to the (reasonably) simple waters of LJ and the slightly less smooth ones of my own website, which has comfortingly low traffic but is a nice shade of blue....
