Hi Mycroft,

Of course, you are: absolutely correct in regards to the shortfall of brevity in my posts, a result of: any, all, or a mixture of: character, genes, soul ? But, I have learned to accept this as a perennial side-effect of an evident surplus, in this on-going series of dream-states within this primate body which is experienced as an "I," most of the time, of: intoxication with language. Yet, I do feel remorse, and regret: if, my glossolalic tendencies' manifestations in glyphs do not entertain, but: annoy; if, my flights-of-fancies, my godwotteries, induce: not smile, but frown.

I think I'll let your younger brother, Sherlock, speak in my defence, (knowing he would, being British, use "defence," and not, as Americans do: "defense"):

Sherlock Holmes: "If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable."

Arthur Conan Doyle: "A Case of Identity," 1891


I plead "guilty," your Honor, and eagerly await my sentencing ! For, surely, the fall from your Grace, in the form of righteous punishment, is an opportunity for an ascent to an even higher summit of: your loving Forgiveness, and, for us both, ultimately: Redemption.

ever, Bill
"We live in a world ruled by fictions: mass merchandising, advertising, politics as advertising, instant translation of science, technology, into popular imagery, increasing blur of identity in realms of consumer goods, preempting any free, original, imaginative, response to experience by the television screen. We live in an enormous novel. For a writer it's less necessary to invent a novel's fictional content: fiction's already there. A writer's task is to invent a reality." J. G. Ballard, 1974
