Now I’m really getting into the Rg Veda. I’m using Macdonnell’s reader, of course, doing one stanza at a time very slowly, looking up the quirks of vocabulary and grammar. I’m absorbing it better, I think, than on my previous attempts; also appreciating it more as poetry.

Almost went back to Salem today, for the Obon festival they have listed; but I thought it might be better to stay in town, save my strength and resources and maybe get a thing or two done. After all there’s nothing at the museum I need to see, and I’ll be going back next month probably with L.

Also some Saturday next month or in September I’ll have to make it to Providence to see the “waterfire.”
