The Jonathan Papers


What's in this issue?

The Moment of Poise the Decorating article

I miss quiet. It used to be part of late evenings; and it certainly used to be part of Sundays.  Now Sundays are full of Saturday sounds, and as I listen, I wonder how anyone can endure doing Saturday things on a Sunday—when, just maybe, they might take it easy.

There Should Always be a Bookmark the Hearth article

In the spirit of Elisabeth Woodbridge, who felt the same way about the importance of bookmarks, here are some ideas for creating some soul-soothing reading companions of your own

On Taking One's Dessert First the Kitchen article

The mention of eating ice cream out in the orchard seemed an open invitation for us to revisit the ice creams of Elisabeth's day to see what might have constituted ice cream ambrosia as it was plundered out beneath her apple trees.  Ice cream recipes include: Golden Moment Ginger Snaps, Maple-Anise Ice Cream, Double Chocolate Amaretti Ice Cream, and Ginger and Preserves Gelato.

The Memory of Music the Music article

At the same time that Elisabeth Woodbridge was writing in her pure-narrative, naturalist style, the music of concert halls and recitals experienced a broad move towards what was labelled, either whimsically or pejoratively, the impressionistic movement.  It was a venture into a bit of early musical modernity that had deep roots in naturalism.  In the accompanying piece, Tanner demonstrates a handful of typical impressionistic and early modernist compositional practices.

Dig in it Weed it and Pick it the Garden article

We use Elisabeth's words—accompanied by some tactical basics of our own—to energize anyone's interest in the pleasing partnership with the earth.

The Lure of the Berry the Workshop article

Building supports for berries can fall under the slap-it-together-and-hope-the-berries-cover-it-soon category or something more elaborate, such as these constructed of 6-ft. cedar fence slats, ripped into 1x2s and constructed according to the dimensions shown.

And the Garden is Mine Now the Bookshelf article

I remember the first time as a child that I owned a book.  I do not mean simply I had it to keep on a shelf with my name on the flyleaf—that is merely possessing a book.  I mean the first time that I felt that an author had lived inside my mind for a time, and had described, better than I could myself, exactly how I felt.  At that point, I was convinced that the book had been written just for me.

From Sanquhar to Ayr the Writer's Garret article

As dusk settled into night, I remained in my own little pocket of safety, reverberating delightedly with the boom and bounce of the controlled thunder by which the driver plied our way along the road, while the light from the coach lanterns fingered the branches of the trees and rustled the leaves as we passed.
