26 May The Frog and its Swamp, by Lydia Cutler
When I read Bena’s mentioning Brezhnev’s morass on the homepage of her family site I remembered meeting a guy at the coffee house in Utah on the drive from NY to CA.
He asked if I missed the Soviet Union – my old country.
“Absolutely not,” was my adamant answer.
“Yea,” he said, “I don’t think a frog misses his swamp, only because he was born there.”
I liked that comparison.
