Light On Light Through

You'll hear a little of this and lot of that on Light On Light Through - my reviews of great television series, my interviews with authors and creative media people and their interviews of me, my political commentary, thoughts about my favorite cars and food and space travel, discussions of my music, and a few of my readings from my science fiction stories. These are usually audio and a few are video.  In the first years, starting in 2006, I put up a new episode at least once a month.  More recently, it's become more or less often than once a month, usually a lot less often.  But now, in the Fall of 2018, I'm getting more in the mood to podcast, and you can expect new episodes at least once a month.  - Paul Levinson

One Sharp Cookie

Sep 9, 2007


I guess this comes under the category of you should be careful what you absurdly joke about, lest it become true...

Ever since I was a kid, if I saw a fly land in someone's soup, or on a friend or family member's sandwich, I'd say "hey, a little extra protein, no charge"...

I seldom got much appreciation for the...


A Umami Tomato...

Sep 3, 2007


Well, my wife and I just had our first tomatoes from that straggly plant that I told you about last week.  It's a "Better Boy" variety, and I have been hovering near it and taking care of it like a baby boy since we brought it home, or the verge of extinction at the end of August.  It's lost almost all of its original...


Sushi Manhattan

Sep 2, 2007


Mmm.... Having sushi in Manhattan with the family tonight... my favorite.

Or tied for first place in my favorite cuisine with Italian food - vongole (clams) or calamari (squid) to be exact...

But sushi is a cold, sweet, salty protein rush.  Not everyone likes it - I once heard someone say if she wanted raw fish...


A Nice, Quiet Post About Tomatoes

Aug 28, 2007

I picked up a tall, straggly tomato plant at the local nursery last week.  In its better days, the plant would have sold for $45 - the pot still had the sticker with that price.   That would have been at least a month or more ago.  As it was, the clerk let me have the plant for $7, plus a 20-percent discount.

The plant...


White Tea

Jul 31, 2007

I used to drink coffee, a long time ago.  I still love the taste.  My favorite gelato is coffee.   But the brew itself developed the strange effect of turning me into a real grouch the next day. Some people said this was a complete reversal for me.

I can't recall just when I switched to tea.

Tea's a touchy thing. It's...
