    ….which, dr. Livingstone, might mean that innovative, “Third Way” thoughts and propositions among eternally wailing groups within a rigidly dogmatic (light proof, exclusive) “pottery” environment –

    might be “enlightening” and worth while to discuss on their potential “pros” and “cons” ?

    Or not ?

    I am pleased you liked my post. I firmly believe that all poems etc should have the authors name on the bottom, As a student of poetry etc I can, as you have done ,look up the name of the author and study other workings of theirs. I always think that if people on here don’t do this they seem to suggest that we will surmise that it is their own work. Hope I can hold your interest in other authors in the future.
