Nickel Men — A Gambling Story

The celebrants are a young, attractive couple. They stand at the center spot of the blackjack table as if they stopped momentarily. He’s tall, wearing a tux, and has impeccable hair. She’s shorter, thin, and in a dressy black number with spangles. Like Hoffman says in Rain Man, she looks like a holiday.

Vikings in Scotland, a Visit to the Brough of Birsay

On the day of my visit, winds gusted to 50 mph as thick furrows of clouds menaced on the horizon. It was fitting, I thought, given the demeanor of the island’s most notorious resident, Thorfinn Sigurdsson, the Viking earl of Orkney. He was described in the Viking history of Orkney, The Orkneyinga Saga, as “…the tallest and strongest of men, ugly, black-haired, sharp-featured, and big-nosed, and with somewhat scowling brows.” Continue Reading → The post Vikings in Scotland, a Visit to...

Chéticamp Brigadoon: Tangled Music Traditions in Cape Breton

The Jackass Hill Mystery

He’d been silent, the other man at the bar, gazing into his glass of whiskey before growing animated at the mention of Mark Twain. “I met Twain one time, you know, out near Jackass Hill.” “You look pretty good for a hundred and fifty years old,” I said in jest, assuming he wasn’t serious. “It wasn’t all that long ago; a few years back,” he answered in a matter-of-fact tone, though he had a faraway look in his eyes as he said it. “For a few hours that day,” he continued,...



Inside the Tower: Robinson Jeffers’ Tor House

"A chill rippled across my skin as I realized that we were standing in that very room and the bed before me was the subject of the poem — the death-bed in 'The Bed by the Window.' Robinson Jeffers had written the poem as a young man shortly after building the house. Many years later, he had indeed died in the room, thereby fulfilling its destiny."
