Abstract

29 and world-ignorant, I thought at the time ``inborn, natural, music as God's gift in return for making them simple.'' My folly. The evening was young, the war as well. What I learned, I struggle to tell, even if--by candlelight in a cheap theater, reciting my ``exploits'' as ``La Belle Rebel''-- the one I want to enlighten is myself, as if hard Hell could be averted in the end by how you spell and spiel your wicked life. Past fifty, I know better, and worse. No scripture, this story of perils is my own creation, sly chapter and weary verse. Robin Becker Holiday We slept and woke to the sound of crashing surf. Across the room, my friend lay with her book; I listened to the spacious hour, its humane breath on the room, grown large with distant water. In that monastic calm we took ourselves lightly, rose and ate, walked the half moon beach and indulged our ankles with bracelets of kelp. Underwater, the day kept flut- 30 tering open, fluttering open-- banded butterfly with its eye-concealing stripe, blue angel nibbling on a sponge-- and then the boatman put his back to the reef and returned us
