From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

I don't know who you are, 
but I will find you...[1]

...and tell you that I never get tired of the story of action and adventure that I first read in pup-school back in the day. It is about two young orphans who steal away in the middle of the night from German-occupied Phalsbourg (in the wake of my country's terrible defeat in the Franco-Prussian War).

They begin a dangerous trek toward their homeland, their motherland, La France. 

Even though I know the story well, I am always thrilled to see how André uses his schooling to read a challenging wall map in the home of a ranger...and then the stars twinkling above.

And little Julien is as cute as...well, as cute as moi

A friend of mine has worked up a brief translation here, just in case you are interested
