Jessica’s Wednesday Poem Club: What is the Meaning of a Jar Placed in the Woods, If No One Is There to See It?

For today’s post, especially if you enjoy poetry, head over to the “Wednesday Poem Club” hosted by my friend and fellow-blogger, Jessica Slavin. I was planning just to leave a quick comment on the Wallace Stevens poem “Anecdote of the Jar,” but then wrote so much that I decided it should count as a post on my blog, too!

(On August 6, 2021: Several people have visited this page in the last few days, and I don’t think whatever link I had originally used is live anymore. So I just now found Jessica’s blog post again online. Here’s a link to its new location:

  1. thanks for sharing, doc katherine. and for dropping by… i love jessica’s discussion in her essay – about man-made stuff and the human condition thingy, hehe. 😉 waving….


  2. Someone just visited this post for the first time in years (today is Wednesday, January 13, 2021), and since I couldn’t remember it very well, I clicked over to see what I had written.

    And you know what I think happened? I posted a long reply on Jessica’s blog and then “re-blogged” her original post. Then when anyone went over there, they’d see my reply “post.”

    But, sadly, Jessica took down her blog. So the reblog link is gone. I’ll try looking for it in the “wayback machine” (internet archives). If I find it, I’ll post that link. It may be gone for good, though😢
