Xanadu

Xanadu is the first X word that popped into my mind.  I always associate Xanadu (the song, not the movie) with Olivia Newton John, never knowing until today that it is from Coleridge’s Kubla Khan.  Well, maybe I did know that in some hazy literature era of days gone by…At any rate, I’m glad I (re)discovered it today.

  1. You are in good company today, as Xanadu has been quite the ubiquitous “X” topic. I like that your Xanadu was a pop culture reference as well. 🙂
