Re: Memorial Service "Choose Something Like a Star" - Frost

Thank you all, very much! I didn't expect this. I expected maybe a comment or two about Frost's poem. Honestly, it was not my intention to inflict on you "la petite obligation malheureuse de consoler"! Which is the Babel Fish translation of "the little unhappy obligation to console." Which is a phra...

Memorial Service "Choose Something Like a Star" - Frost

It will be sung at my father's memorial service, hosted by the Unitarian Society of New Haven, in a couple of weeks. I don't know who selected it. And before I read it carefully several times I had no hope at all that it could possibly be at all appropriate. The title is not promising. And I know th...

Re: Book of Mercy #41-

Mat, You told me on the Butcher thread - you sent up the Batman signal to me - that Cate was acting up over here and I needed to get my ass right over and straighten her out about a few things and put her in her place. Cate suggests (on the BOM thread above quoted) that the "you" could be Leonard hi...

Re: Book of Mercy #41-

For the purposes of this dissertation (or "post") I will use the term "supersuperego". I know the word's grotesque. But at least its meaning, after a few comments, should be self-evident. So I'll use it for now. "supersuperego" gets about 300 hits on Google. Most of then take the first "super" to be...

Re: Book of Mercy #41-

Chelsea/~greg, I noticed that the butcher ("butchery") enters Leonard's work once more in Book of Mercy # 41 “...Bind me, ease of my heart, bind me to your love. Gentle things you return to me, and duties that are sweet. And you say, I am in this heart, I and my name are here. Everywhere the blades...

Re: Mrs Owen ---- by Greg

I apologize if I misunderstood and thought that Jack's 'cleaner bed' vs 'clean her bed' was humour. No. no. It really was funny. :) And the joke really is on me! And I really do have to apologize to Jack for so quickly assuming he was being sarcastic. I didn't realize this until just now - but yes:...

Re: Mrs Owen ---- by Greg

Jack I am sorry about the loss of your friend. There are some things that I am thinking about saying to her and am a little unsure of some things. I have spent a lot of time considering what might be of some use to her and Greg's poem caused me to reflect on how little we are able to determine those...

Re: .

... the usual Greg thing of showing how sick and twisted everyone else is. I think you're twisted, Jack. I think someone should copyright the poem title "Destination of hero's in the sky" because it is a piece of poetry. It is interesting, the way you have nothing to say about the poem itself, just...
