On page 106 of the previous book by Professor Ueki, I pointed out to him that "vara-dundubhi-svara (the most excellent drum owner)" reminded me of American rock.  I was thinking of the songs by Niel Sedaka or Paul Anka in 60s.  The backup singers’ chorus sounded like "dundubhi dowa dowa...

I’m not good at remembering people’s name.  But lately, my memory has been improving.  I think I owe it to a chain of coincidences.             First, I meet a woman in my beginning Arabic language class, and I can remember her name right away.  Why?...

With two kids home from school for the summer (one of them is visiting grandparents in Europe), personal engagements seem to find their place at the bottom of the proverbial list. When it was suggested to me by a friend that I should go meet the owner of Abagayle’s Books and Collectibles in...
