  1. jenny eagleton Says:

    “Cowbell farm” is really more appropriately written as “goatbell farm” or something else goaty. If you want to be specific “The bell of mountain goats Farm.” This point is moot, probably, because imo “cowbell” seems deliberately obtuse but, then, so is the whole project, right?

    What does “sweet marrow” refer to?

    • Jim Sligh Says:

      Hi Jenny!

      You’re right. If I’m reconstructing (and this was a quickie—I haven’t properly gotten to California yet since I decided to go deep and this project mutated), I think I looked up “la clarine” in my online Larousse, read the definition (“clochette des animaux à l’alpage,” “bell of the animals of the alpine pasture”), and went with cowbell because ‘goatbell’ sounded peculiar. “Cowbell farm” definitely qualifies as me in an obtuse mood. I may well change it, somehow.

      “Sweet marrow” is my translation of “moelleux”. Here’s what I say in the write-up of Huet:

      Comes from low Latin medullosus, “filled with marrow”; used in several senses (per Larousse): soft and elastic, as for a carpet or a pillow; tender, as in meat, or tone of voice; sweet and velvety to the taste, ear, or sight, as for example a soft chocolate, a babbling brook, or a fine drapery; in literature, who is graceful, flexible, soft and round, curvy, sensual.
