Email: An intimacy won [C]

An intimacy reached for is not the same as an intimacy won or attained. Intimacy is won from the inside out.

Weblogs: The Cipher of Leonardo

Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog: The Cipher of Leonardo: "‘Whan thou art dede, no man shal knowe the treuthe
But me,’ thalbino seyde, and shot Sauyniere.
The bullete sange yts hotte waye thurgh the aire
And lodged yn hys cheste, o payne so soore!
And caspere raysed the gunne for yet oon moore.
And yet a clikke, no bullet yet remayneth
For whiche to dryve a passage thurgh hys brayne.
‘Payne ys goode,’ the pale man seyde to hym
And disappearede."

Weblogs: Are you a laupe?

: "George W. Bush is no laupe. Neither is Michael Moore.

Laupes love trees. Laupes love sex.

Laupes are willing to try anything once.

Laupes beg to differ.

Laupes are open-hearted, they are generous to a fault, and they are willing to look at things from the other person's point of view.

Laupes really dislike being rushed. Wherever laupes go, there they are.

There is more love expressed in a laupe disagreement than in most agreements elsewhere.

Most laupes were weird children.

Laupes will talk your ear off.

Laupes will go days without saying a word.

Laupes have no leader.

Laupes have been to the dark side.

When laupes suffer, they do so in exquisite poetry.

So, are you a laupe?"
