So, once upon a time, when toga'd Romans went about unaware that we far-off future-dwellers considered their world to be 'ancient,' December was deemed the 10th month of the year... and now it's the 2nd day of the month.... Bette Midler turned - here's me taking a deep breath and remembering the large thrill of seeing her on her first tour through kansas city... the auditorium seemed to smell of rose petals..anyway The Divine turned 65 yesterday, the 69th birthday, too, of an old lover [from my own ancient world] W. Jody Corbell, if he's not dead, that is and I guess he could be. haven't seen him in 25 years, which is something to be thankful for. sure was a sexy old buster.... and today, today, the 336th day of this present year, marks 152 years since John Brown , the meteor signaling the coming war, was led to the scaffold.
"I, John Brown am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood." 2 Dec. 1859. So, on the 3rd of Dec, what did the soul that had so recently occupied the husk, the avatar, the carrying case, known as John Brown know? What did he find out that that he hadn't learned down below, on the other side of the veil? Fun it is to fancy him meeting or reaccquainting himself with souls who'd once gone about in togas when Rome was in its glory.
