    That's a nice story. I think you're about the same place I am.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I've just finished re-reading through part 4 (I love snow days). FYI, it kicks into gear *after* this. Well, the conflict is setup anyway.

    I don't want to talk about a book, or anything else, I want to experience it now in company. In short, I want to read aloud to you and with you and in you. By you and with you and in you, becomes a sacred experience. We are now longer at a distance from what we read, we are what we read, and we are what we read together. And what we read, transforms us; we are transubstantiated by the spoken word. Just as the spoken word transubstantiates the bread into the body, the spoken word transubstantiates the word into our living flesh.

    Who could possibly want to go back to dispassionate reading of the solitary text when we can ride the waves of emotion beating through the global village?

    them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

    C'mon, here you are talking with us in the global village and denying it at the same time. If you keep this up, and the wind changes, you will be cross-eyed forever.

    Good God, we have a cyclone bearing down upon us and half-through the wind changes, and if you are still in denial, you will also be cross-eyed forever.
