Critical Pages is a collection of essays, observations, opinions, notes, prose pieces and maybe a few poems on a variety of subjects. The website has been around for a number of years and had changed, vanished, reappeared, had bursts of growth, gone dormant, and at times has apparently joined the Choir Invisible. So, here it is, back again, more or less. One last note, the photographic image at the top of this page is simply a mid-summer cafe shortly after a rain shower — no special meaning, just a summer scene you might like as much as we do.
