This morning’s Arts and Letters Daily references, as they do Monday through Saturday, another interesting article. This one, from The Atlantic, is A Brief History of Applause. Now there’s a topic I’d never have thought of, but it is all quite interesting.
These days applaud is something I’m having to do more verbally than physically. These old arthritic fingers will no longer straighten up – I can’t easily get my palms to meet to make that distinctive clap. I’m just happy that I can still type out quick things like this for my blog.
Happy Tuesday everyone – give yourself a round of applause!
