I promise to remember the sunscreen! Thanks for the reminder!
After Moh's surgery for skin cancer in 2004, I became a convert to high SPF sunscreens and hats with broad brims. How clever of you to use the tale of Icarus to make the point!
Actually, the two candidates were the ones I had in mind. But if it reminds others that the sun is a mixed blessing, so much the better!
Oh, man--I love the Icarus/Daedalus story, and the Brueggel painting that Auden wrote of in "Musee des Beaux Arts" is a favorite of mine...beautiful! Great post with a moving message!
