From Sun-Ae's Birdland

Sun-Ae is filling a notebook with these sketches, and they look even better seen 'physically' than electronically.

Horace,
I'm not that well-qualified to comment profoundly on your wife's beautiful bird, but I'm taking this opportunity to pursue an unexpected link that I discovered from reading a review of "North Korea's Juche Myth". How does someone from the Arkansas Ozarks with Jeffery (spelled correctly in his name) end up in Korea (where I spent my formative years 1954-61 in Seoul attending SFS)? I am living in DC and haven't been to Korea (North or South) for many years. My grandfather left Arkansas for Texas in the early part of the last century and never went back (as far as I know). My wife did some research and discovered my Arkansas roots, and I've visited Calico Rock, Mountain Home and Mountain View several times. You have my e-mail address - how are we related?

It won't be long before the blog becomes Νεφελοκοκκυγία!

Birdland = Cloud Cuckoo Land.

I had been thinking along the same lines.

"Finis Jeffery." Interesting name. Do I have your email? Where does it lurk?

I seem to recall a family name "Jefferies" or "Jeffery" in Izard County, but the name is unrelated to my name "Jeffery."

My middle name "Jeffery" was intended to link me to my maternal grandfather, Henry Jefferson Perryman.

There are, though, these unexpected intersecting paths of ours, almost greater than coincidence can bear.

Thanks for letting me know of these tantalizing 'near-links.'
