do you remember my question about "Lepanto" and its bird? Now I wonder if you could be so kind again to solve one more perplexity of mine. The problem is the meaning of line 10 in GFK's poem "The Donkey" which, as you know, reads:
"Of ancient crooked will".
I think it means "very obstinate since I was born". Am I correct?
I was wondering if you would like to be my friend here at CA? I find your posts extremely informative and your attitude sincere. I only wish that more posters were as eloquent. I'm new to Catholism, but would like to think if things had different I would have become an Anglican.
You are very kind to say so. I try, hard, to keep most emotion and a good deal of ego out of my posts. Don't always succeed.
Tired is my default mode. But I made it worse last night, by attending a friend's Halloween party, in costume. I do not do costumes. But it was sort of fun. My wife, after we had attended many of these affairs, not in costume, decided to make one, based on her Indian heritage and some pictures done by some artist friends of ours. And it was a great success. I, based on one of my book hobbies, went as Sherlock Homes. A much simpler idea; all I did was put on a deerstalker hat and carry a calabash pipe. We seemed to fit right in. I surprise myself.
