Generally this week’s readings felt more a window into the minds of the authors than a window into the wilds of Mongolia. I enjoyed them greatly although felt I missed much. So it is. The same thought was in my mind as said above by [email protected] regarding The Shelducks. I wondered what the author wanted to say while being quite skilled in using this story to say it thoughts without drawing undo attention. The full intent of the story I am sure I don’t know. Historical context is unknown to me but for broad strokes of the historical timeline. For me this is part of the joy of reading this literature. I know I know little but it feels like the scent of food unfamiliar to me. It draws me in. Much more to know and experience.
