How many jiffies in an hour, how many soons in an afternoon? How many fasts does it take to make a slow?

Nov 17, 2021-- "Early on there was no word for 'groundhog.' Neither were there groundhogs, or grandmothers, or event coordinators. There were events but they were uncoordinated like the Tunguska Event. There was nothing, but no word for it. In some ways it must have been nice, all that wordlessness, because sometimes now you meet somebody and all you can think is, Please stop talking. Our planet has become so much wordier than the other planets, although there are respites if you hang out with eagles or angels. Eagles never explain anything, and angels are no more voluble than they are visible: visibility is not their shtick." The inimitable Amy Leach shares more in this inventive, and gloriously whimsical essay from her new book, "The Everybody Ensemble," a celebration of "our oddball and interconnected world."
