@GeoffreyGevalt Hi -- yes, those are mine! KUAC is a subset (a radio segment) of Katexic -- the newsletter/site.
@cremullins They were a significant part of the depiction of Santa as a heavy, jovial figure, though, iirc.
@ontploffing Interesting...thanks! I'm pretty much all paper these days, but that script could be handy.
The old man, the mayor, was trying to say that the world was knit together with threads we could not see, that the wind was a bridge between people.

This weeks #katexic #newsletter turned into a themed issue! → "essence of quiescence" featuring obmutescence, silences of all kinds, philip k. dick, carthusian monks, puddles and a bunch more → https://katexic.com/announcements/newsletter-december-16-2018/
@solitarywalker My vote would be: yes and go with the standard suggestion of _Fathers and Sons_ ... and if you are into short fiction, then _Sportsman's Sketches_!
I updated the Katexic WORD archive to include a half-dozen new pieces including the latest, which is, if not the best piece I've done, certainly one of the most important to me and my community, still/always reeling from loss. → Read and/or listen: https://katexic.com/kuac/
@wion I might do that! My work took me deep into the WordPress woods and I haven't had time to use much else for a while. But that is changing. I'm glad to head Txp is still going.
@wion Indeed and thanks! I take it you were a Txp-er too?
@wion when editing your profile you can verify that a site is yours by putting a tag on that site, which enables the check mark —> “You can verify yourself as the owner of the links in your profile metadata. For that, the linked website must contain a link back to your Mastodon profile. The link back must have a rel="me" attribute. The text content of the link does not matter.”
