The End

"There is beauty in terror, beauty in theory, and beauty in the fiction of reality. Beauty in truth is harder to find in the factory or on the streets than in the tarn or on the fell. Only beyond the rubric of time and sanity can we begin to pollinate these unburied flowers of evil." —The Psychotic Dr. Schreber

message 9: by A.

A. Thank you Dr. for the friends request.

Your icon frightened me as well :), but I thought it's very well illustrated...may you tell us who's the illustrator?

I think who ever felt scared because of the icon should watch your video to calm down a bit...I just have to say that the sound was low to me even though I had the volume raised to max.

Salaam (peace)

W.B. D.H.W....thanks for the invite. I'd love to read some of your books...a quick scan piqued my curiosity.

Summer downsizing leads to good summer reading time...

Was just rereading "The Depressed Person" by D.F.W. in the tub...that has to be the best update of Swiftean humor into the 21st century I've encountered!


Barbara Thank you for the friend request and have a great day!
