mythos so mainstream it has passed, whatever
Yes I am talking about a KICKSTARTER project to fund beautiful hardcover editions of my new project (ongoing for years, of course, like all of mine) -- "The Chemical Wedding, by Christian Rosenkreutz. A Romance in Eight Days." A little book I regard as a good candidate for First Science Fiction Novel (pub. 1616 -- 400 years ago exactly!).
There are only 14 days left in the campaign and a little (well, quite a bit) less that nalf the stated goal amount reached. I hope you can participate.
ANd here's a prize for everyone -- a riddle I just thought of: What number, when you add 5 to it, changes space into time?
I thought I'd got away from South Bend long ago, but here I am in Mishawaka (South Bend's Twin CIty, as I 'm sure you know) serving the public thoughtfully and humbly.
Same goes for you, Young Women! and you Greybeards too! Set your foreheads against the ignorant hirelings!
Treating metaphors as merelycolorful ways of saying things can irritate them, and sometimes they bite. In a local arts & culture magazine, an aricle about how hard it was to restore Emily Dickinson's house. It was helped by the discovery of some fragments of wall paper still adhering to surfaces. "Discovery of the wall paper fragments...lit a a fire under museum directors and the board of governors," the article says. "Not that the fire was quick to burn," he continues, giving us time to beat out the metaphorical flames consuming Emily's home.
