“Do not let me hear
Of the wisdom of old men, but rather of their folly,
Their fear of fear and frenzy, their fear of possession,
Of belonging to another, or to others, or to God.
The only wisdom we can hope to acquire
Is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless.”

T. S. Eliot, The Four Quartets: East Coker – II (via of-a-toast-and-tea)

Ice-Coated Cattail Slough at Sunset (via USFWS Mountain-Prairie)

Christmas Day rains eventually turned to snow, but not before they coated everything with ice in the Kulm Wetland Management District, North Dakota. One can imagine this would make it tough for pheasants, grouse, and other wildlife to find food.

From my driveway this morning. I should have shot a few more to get one with better focus. But if you look closely you can (barely) see the waning moon in the cropped one. Also: Venus in the wide one.

Fishing Schooners

A brief digression from the usual photograph posting thanks to some questions about fishing from schooners. As others have pointed out, sometimes it was fishing directly from the schooners themselves, but more often (and especially by the late 19th/early 20th century) it was using dories carried by the schooners. Usually, the fishing involved long hand lines with multiple baited hooks. (This is a pretty broad generalization; different techniques were used at different times and in different locations, and there were also differences between the various fisheries like cod or swordfish.)

The dories were transported by, and launched and recovered from, the schooners. The fish would be processed on board the schooners, and either iced or salted before being transported to buyers ashore. Working fishing schooners carried all sorts of dories and other gear on their decks. Many of the photographs of Bluenose show her in racing or public exhibition trim, but she was also a working schooner, as seen in the lead photograph, taken around 1940.

The Portuguese were still carrying on a schooner-based dory fishery in the 1960s. The last few ships attracted attention from documentary film-makers and a number of their films are on YouTube. They give some idea of the experience, equipment, and techniques:

At first I wanted to kill him. But now I’m glad I’ve spent the time to get to know him. Yeah, of course he looks delicious with his big red cheeks. But we’ve all got an agreement that we’re not going to eat Stu. Right? Right.

#this is even funnier considering that Stu irl was not even an actor and in fact an actual IT specialist who thought he was  #going out for a job  #and somehow they convinced him to be a part of this movie
