On Books and Missing Pieces

Now you tell me, how to connect Shel Silverstein’s The Missing Piece:

It was missing a piece.
And it was not happy.
So it set off in search
of its missing piece.

with the latest news by Brain Pickings on Indie legends celebrating Silverstein’s songs.

Well, country music goes well with many missing pieces, but not this one.

I have to hush, though. When a nation truly adopts an artist, they do not give damn what the rest of the world thinks about it. Amen to the artist, the nation and the world.

Now, this opens a completely different question. Are Americans more generous in openly sharing their artists than the Europeans? Darn! This deserves a new post.
