The “Jardin”, San miguel de Allende by Keith Miller
Grease pencil and oil pastel, 17cm by 12cm
Park Bench, in the Jardin, San Miguel
India ink and oil pastel, 17cm by 12cm.
These are two small studies of San Miguel’s main square which the locals call, “El Jardin”, or “garden’.
As far as I know it’s the only town or city in Mexico which uses this word to describe its main square……never seen it in Spain either.

Impressions of early morning clouds near Benson - I drive through Benson fairly often - this isn’t a realistic landscape. Its one I compiled from memory, which is what I mean by “impressions” - so not real mountains, only half-remembered fantasy ones.

but of course - it’s so clear to me now - there are six heads stemming from winged-head-point C, how can I not have known it before, fool that I was? heads fourteen through nineteen face the king off a single stem originating in winged-head-point C
honestly this changes everything
John Darnielle also loves charts.
im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards
Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!
An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:
- desserts & stressed
- drawer & reward
- gateman & nametag
- time & emit
- laced & decal
- regal & lager
And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.
Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.
