A confused stile, and a disturbed method, is fittest to discourse of our miserie.
The bride has adorned herself with stars, The pure myrtleWhich bends over the adoring countenance of the dead. Full of blossoming shiverThe blue coat of Chromodoris loringi finally embraces you.
Oh. That is just lovely. thanks - and how are you? long time no talk.
I'm OK, 4legs. Starting a new job, getting bitten by the kitten a lot, trying to do too many things at once. Etc. How about you?

(yeah, i can hear it now...) wood's lot.it's always chock full. phila probably gets the literary allusions better than i, but damn man it's intelligentsia, with pictures!i'm just say'n, checkitout.
let me just say i've always hated phila for not linking to my blog.It's nothing personal! I just needed a reminder from you, 'cause I'm slow and distracted and lazy. I'll get to it soon, though...it's high time I updated my links.
no, i didn't take it personal.i just really appreciate what you do with your little corner.sumth'n for everybody. of course most people just like the bright colored slugs. nuth'n wrong with a hook.another thing i like about you, you are an egalitarian.good luck with the new job.
you are an egalitarian.There aren't many compliments better than that! Thanks, pal.
Lovely, and that includes the poetry - is it your own, Phila? I tried googling the "adorned with stars" line, and got a bunch of Old Testament links.I assume the whole metaphor in its original non-nudibranch form is related to vinca minor, the periwinkle. Robert Graves averred that vinca - which in English tradition is connected with death and was used to carpet graves - was thought by the medieval poets to be connected with the divine female principle in her erotic but dangerous aspect. He quoted an old French song about a "little shoemaker" who is taken by a beautiful lady to her great bed, which has bunches of periwinkle - "pervanche" in French - at its four posts. Graves said the implication was that the shoemaker was tied to the bed, as "vinca" means "binder", due to its tough vines and strangling. Anyone who's tried to weed it out of a garden learns to respect it!Li'l Innocent
