Green Thoughts -- Text/Writing and Landscape

I don't know whether Eleanor Perenyi would have approved, or not, of the notion of "textscape." But her book, Green Thoughts, is one of the best, ever captures of great writing and great perception/understanding of the landscape (her Connecticut garden). If there were an Academy Award for Textscape, Perenyi would get the lifetime achievement award. If you haven't read Green Thoughts -- no excuse. Read it now. You will feel -- and be -- better for having read it. Here is the NYT obit. But look her up. Read the book.
