The champion of the unexpected, unlooked for reentry in the middle of the afternoon--the late Walker Percy--enjoyed the idea of a biology student arriving at class to find a Shakespearean sonnet tacked to her dissecting board. And likewise, a Literature student exploring a dogfish with their fingernail. Off the beaten path. Momentarily lost from the guided tour...a surprising revelation. Here is a strange convergence of robots, nature and a nude in the kitchen. File under: Minnesota April Snow, or, Flat Tire on the West River Road.
