Re: What is a Ling?
Thanks for your response.
My first thought was that it might have been a crossed pair of tree "limbs"
that enabled a log to rest in the "V" for cutting. I have seen those but
have no idea what they are called!
Maybe after the holidays someone will come up with an answer.

I've been thinking about this. Maybe a "ling", in this case, is like a
trellis; some kind of support for ivy, roses, or lilacs?
As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual
certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human
life--so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an
archbishop so you can meet girls.
