Which Tarot card are you? ~ Saturday, May 26, 2007
I assume they're just looking at the Major Arcana...
You are The Lovers
Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.
The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.
Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that's actually more apt than "Lovers." Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can't understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

I'm a footnote in Wikipedia! ~ Monday, May 07, 2007
Here's something kind of cool. I was looking up Angela Carter's novel _Wise Children_ just now. The first link is to the Wikipedia article.One of the article's notes (on Shakespeare) links to the relevant section of my interpretive reading on Margin.
The "External Links" section sends readers to the beginning of the article--and it's even the first link! Am I ever chuffed about that! It's the first known time that a Wiki article has been linked to one of my pieces--and of course the point is to not have done it oneself or asked someone else to do it. Some reader somewhere on the net concluded the article was of some worth and put in the link! Waaay cool! :-)I'm almost as excited as I was to be linked from the article on Angela Carter at the Modern Word--listed right after Salman Rushdie there, no less.
I figured that's going to be one of the few times a link to my stuff is *ever* likely to appear right after one that goes to something of Rushdie's!
Next milestone: to have an actual article in Wiki. But of course, that could be something of a mixed blessing if the article says nasty things or somesuch.

Another excellent concert from Da Capo.
Again, you have to scroll down to the bottom of the page--mine is the third of three pieces on there.
The choir was, as always, excellent. The Latin stuff didn't quite work for me--or at least some of it didn't. The stuff that incorporated Latin rhythms and the like somehow didn't suit the choir or the way it was conducted, or perhaps even the accoustics of the venue. It was well-sung, but not particularly earthy and latino.
The other stuff was great--especially the Eric Whitacre stuff. There's a photo of him on the page in which he looks a little like Eric Stoltz, of Pulp Fiction vintage. ::Posted by Anduril Elessar @ 11:21 AM::::

Marvellous. I especially loved the villain.
:-) And I got a nice big colour page, with my review at the top of it! Gorgeous! ::Posted by Anduril Elessar @ 10:16 AM::::
