That was unnecessarily harsh, my error. I didn't mean that Frances'
post was gib... but, to me, the Seth thing is very controversial,
discussion of which could result in endless cascading threads leading
through meandering foothills to the very slopes of the mountain of
madness (thanks, HP Lovecraft), straying far from the purpose of this
list. I think a Stones song included the words, "its the singer, not the
song". Then Marshall McCluhan wrote something about The Message Is the
Massage. Truthfully, I am as interested in the writings of H.P.
Lovecraft and his Chuthlu Mythos and other writers of fantasy and
supernatural tales like A. Blackwood, A. Machen, A. Merritt and others
as perhaps Frances is with Seth. Irish folk and fairy tales are fulled
with enchantment, another wonderful adventure in literature. Maybe it is
my upbringing; my Father was a rare books librarian, historian and opera
and classical music enthusiast. In the real world, from my perspective,
little is taken for granted, mystery prevails, wonderment enthralls and
captivates and you never know where the next wayside shrine is or what
cool and interesting things await you around the next corner.
