A description of what started this particular blog can be found in its first entry --Feb. 9, 2009. It's about healing.
I had to go to Google translate for this:La Belle Dame Sans Merci CafeI love you.I love everything about you,Even your rejection of me.We are perfectly matched.Goodbye!The woman inspects the chair,Now empty:Server, another one!=====IMO, somehow it loses something in the translation, just like the Catholic Latin mass did when it was Anglicized!
In translation, also in history. Poem was written 43 years ago. Waymire tossed a scribble to me --the title surrounded by ballpoint doodles. He explained about Keats and the old European songs of knights falling impossibly in love with immortal elementals. I wrote it in French to agree with the title --imperfectly yes, but better that than the German I actually studied for 2 years. Herr Thornock dispaired of me. Happily, I had one English teacher who never gave up.
Please, say hello! I welcome your comments, thoughts, even criticisms!
