This poet is dead. So don't cross him. - Don't remember when the last time was I got a full night's rest. These days/ approximately every hour my sleep breaks because I have to go pee in the pot. - In spite of what I and my doctor are doing to prevent it, I have a feeling my bones are turning to dust. - This afternoon while sitting in a chair in the livingroom I told Janice's alien doll which I have standing in a nearby rocker: I think the end is near. I then noticed tears welling. - Am considering posting all my poems and related works at Sprintedon Migrasaurus one per post in this blog. I know many are of no value, but I care not. If 6 or less are worth saving, the effort I expended was worth it. - A flea bite from a flea I killed last night has suddenly spread and become worse. I put some triple antibiotic ointment on it. - And what about the swine flu expected to be in this country in October? - Should you be in need of some ways to ruin your life/ I have a few. rho00368

(1971) is a precise and therefore complex book written by Owen Barfield. I have not read the entire book but the following from pages 127 and 128 are encapsulations that might entice you to learn more. [Note: Wikipedia says this Owen Barfield entry is in need of citations but don't let that stop you from reading it.] Reason Imagination Understanding ---------------- Understanding Fancy Sense Reason (as "the source and birthplace of ideas") Idea Law -------- Law Theory Sense rho00367
