I don't even smoke anything, so it was a realy weird dream.  Plus I think we were hiding it from Margret Drabble.    I possibly need professional help.


Warmly,
Mike Selby

  As Freud points out, sometimes a joint is just a joint. 

  So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

   

  I remember Alexander Gill referencing that God weaving himself into human flesh at Christ's Nativity  sanctifies and redeems human flesh to the point it  transcendentalizes it and makes it abhorrent to Satan.    

  I'd have to look up the reference again, if anyone is interested.

   

  -John

   

   

       THis is the Month, and this the happy morn

  W  herein the Son of Heav'ns eternal King,

  O  f wedded Maid, and Virgin Mother born,

  O  ur great redemption from above did bring;

  F  or so the holy sages once did sing, [ 5 ]

   

   

  W hen every colour glows,

   

  E ach shape and shadow shows.

   

  B lue be it: this blue heaven

   

       The seven or seven times seven

   

      Hued sunbeam will transmit

   

      Perfect, not alter it.

   

      Or if there does some soft,

   

      On things aloof, aloft,

   

  B loom breathe, that one breath more

   

  E arth is the fairer for.

   

  W hereas did air not make

   

   

   

   

  N  ew self and nobler me

   

  I  n each one and each one

   

  M  ore makes, when all is done,

   

  B  oth God's and Mary's Son.

   

  A  gain, look overhead  (to the nimbus and the cloud)

    AS Byatt in today's Guardian reviews an exhibit Compton Verney, Warwickshire, "The Fabric of Myth." This article traces relationships of literature to spinning and weaving. This encompasses things as diverse as "Lycidas" and Kevlar. As to the former, she notes the ferocity of "the blind Fury with th' abhorred shears/ Slits the thin-spun life. As to the latter, with so much literary spinning being done by spiders she notes in passing that some goats have been bio-engineered to secrete a spider protein stronger than Kevlar that has been made super-strong by spider genes. "Two of these goats, Webster and Pete, have been bred in Canada to transmit spider genes to their offspring."

    This show runs to September 7, so IMS9 attendees might venture into Shakespeare country for this.
