Bread on the Water or Pearls Before ...

Wayne Wood of Troppo Armadillo has posted an extended, thoughtful and thought-provoking piece under the title Fathers and Sons. Reading it prompted disturbing recollections of Trotsky family history, and Trotsky family legends such as that of Grandma Trotsky's mandolin, which played a similar role in her family life to that of David's Lyre in another context.

However, Wayne's post is sui generis and in this case imitation would merely be the sincerest form of imitation. So for now, I'll leave the big life issues to him and stick with the fluff for a couple of weeks. Or at least a few days, anyway.
