Part 1 of our special 50th Episode mile marker!  

A friend helped me lift the hood to look into the engine of this podcast.  Inside we found a Yeats poem, the story of the coin Primo Levi brought back from Auschwitz, and why his is the path I most want to follow.  And of course, as always, I hope listening like this evaporates borders.  Special thanks to the musician, Dana Boulé.  And to Allison for taking this photo.  And a very special thanks to Dave for stepping in to host this week and share W.B. Yeats's fitting "The Song of Wandering Aengus."

Any careful word may suggest a route, may begin a strand of metaphor or event out of which much, or all, will develop.
