Asterisk Summer

This summer, asterisks are on the brain. I resist explaining why this is so... although I could go on and on about it. Let this blogpost be a reference to an annotation to follow, a stand in for the full aria soon to come.

From my laptop dictionary:

asterisk |ˈastəˌrisk|
noun
a symbol (*) used to mark printed or written text, typically as a reference to an annotation or to stand for omitted matter.
• a thing resembling a star in shape: soft asterisks of pollen.
verb [ with obj. ] (usu. as adj. asterisked)
mark (printed or written text) with an asterisk: asterisked entries.
ORIGIN late Middle English: via late Latin from Greek asteriskos 'small star,' diminutive of astēr .
