One of my favorite blogs is called The Errant Aesthete; for those of you who subscribe to Slow Love Life posts, and don't see my site, there is a list of blogs I follow, and admire, down the left side, and EA is one of those in a section I've called Come for Cocktails. In other words, anything people like James Wolcott and Mayer Rus want to talk about is fine with me, because they're witty and smart and interesting and provocative. The Errant Aesthete is such a one.
I don't know whether EA is male or female--and I've never really wondered, which kind of transcendence is in itself fascinating, come to think of it. The EA post on the Gulf disaster is haunting and beautiful; I caught up with it shortly after I had written a new kind of post here called Slow Love Moment, in which I share a picture of something miraculous I've caught on camera (trust me, the first miracle is that I have my camera with me, and can take the picture without losing the moment.) I'm going to ask the designer who set up my blog, Kate Caprari, of Three Square Design, if I can create a section where readers can post their own pictures of Slow Love Moments. I would love to see yours. But in the meantime, I will keep sharing mine.
