A Couple More Things I Tell Myself Posted on March 15, 2014 by kathryningrid …since I seem to be in the mode of self-improvement. Or, more likely, just talking to myself as usual… Share this:FacebookLinkedInEmailPinterestMoreRedditTumblrTwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related
Not meaning to hijak your post, but I don’t know if it’s me….I’m having a hard time seeing your font these days. It seems to be shrinking! Or my eyes are getting worse, lol.
You make a good point, Laura! These ‘typesettings’ are some I did a little while ago, so they’re preset in size as-is. I do recommend you click on the individual segments so you can enlarge them a fair amount for readability, as I would need to do as well. I’ll behave better in future! Maybe. 😉
In your browser’s View menu you can try using the Zoom In command several times in a row. That worked fine for me on this post in Firefox and Safari.
Thanks for letting me know. I finally did try that. It took like 6 zooms to get it big enough for my old eyes, lol.
One good zoom deserves another. 😉
hahaha yes 😛
Always such a help, that’s you, my friend! 🙂
Speaking of naming, here’s a favorite passage of mine from a century ago by the French poet Francis Jammes:
On a baptisé les étoiles sans penser
qu’elles n’avaient pas besoin de nom, et les nombres,
qui prouvent que les belles comètes dans l’ombre
passeront, ne les forceront pas à passer.
[We’ve baptized the stars without thinking
That they didn’t need a name, and numbers,
Which prove that lovely comets will pass on
Into the shadows, won’t make them pass on.]
Quel merveilleux poème. Si beau, si tranquille….
It’s a prettier cousin to a poem I wrote a few years ago about Cyrano’s Roxane, called ‘The Name that Shakes the Stars’. I’d forgotten that one. Thanks, as always, for sharing a poem, this sweetly lyrical piece.
(Somehow I italicized them instead of make.)
