This is my first attempt at trying to build a Wiki-like knowledge base on top of the Flutterby content management system.

This is a place for explanation, description and static links on a topic that's either too broad to be covered under a single link, or that you're just too lazy to find the real link to.

Author of Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings[Wiki].

On Being Jonathan Raban brings us:

Raban has a daughter named Julia. He recently wrote about her in the Guardian, describing a trip they took to Baja from Seattle, where he presently lives. The article is called "Once Upon a Time in the West," and is in two parts, the first of which has this passage: "At [the town of] Seaside, Julia put on her new sunglasses, and I saw us reflected in the unfriendly stares of curious pedestrians--we looked uncannily like Humbert Humbert and Lolita. I wanted to call out, 'She's my daughter, I'm her dad,' but remembered that was Humbert's line too."
