Kingfishers that DON"T catch fire.

Gerrard Manly Hopkins wrote a lovely poem called "As Kingfishers catch fire, dragon flies draw flame" in reference to the beautiful sights he saw on an evening, at sunset beside a pond.

Well, my sister and her man, Blayne have had a baby boy, as I reported earlier. His name has finally been decided, and it is Kingston Nathanial Fisher, or King Fisher for short.

Apparently Blayne has been dreaming that one up for decades.

I love my little nephew, he rocks. Today I am helping him move to Kincardine, Ont. where is is more likely that he would catch cold, than catch fire. I am told that it is a wonderfully snowy place. I suppose I shall see for myself soon enough.

Mucho Love-O,

Hi Jacob,
I found your blog a couple of weeks ago when I googled David Wilcox's metaphorical reasons. I was glad to find another Wilcox fan. :)
