Two miles, fruit breakfast, time to start writing (again). Reading first, though, and in order to read one has to find the right things to read, so research. And because I’m wired that way, I poured Legends IV into a matrix file in order to begin formatting the last of my Ginzberg transcriptions. After a full, long book of legends about Moses during the wilderness years, I was struck once again by how cursory the treatment of post-Mosaic figures is. Volume IV is really a sort of ‘Yeah, everything else’ collection (as is appropriate, since here we read beyond the Pentateuch and take up the less intensely authoritative Prophets).
