  1. Thank you for many wonderful reads, images and links. I’ve been enjoying your blog for several years, and I really appreciate what you do. May 2024 fail to be the destructive year predicted.

  2. Grim: Thanks! I’m always positive at this time of year, however things turn out later on.

    Joe: Mr Grant gets a page in the BBOM as it happens. I’d noticed it was his centenary when looking up things for 1924. I wonder if anyone will be celebrating?

  3. H G Wells, no mean prophet himself, nevertheless pointed out that whatever else we may say about the future, it will be different than we imagine. He also added that pointing out that the future will be different than the present is the most subversive message possible since the “powers that be” are always insisting things remain the same.

    For what it’s worth I have always preferred Klee to Kandinsky but it’s easy to imagine Kadinsky’s work serving as the décor of our first moon base. (Unless of course the walls are all covered with adverts.)

  4. More on Kenneth Grant for the curious
    at this well trust’d site

    I just finished reading the 2nd volume of the Henry James, The Mature Master. I had never heard of the Wells-James feud before and…it appears this blatherer has a LOT of catching up to do in his English Lit Biographical Studies! For starters

    Here’s to more enlightenment then on our 19th, let alone 21st centuries–
    and The Future!
