[187] Intermezzo : Verbalizando (2)

My current situation does not allow me concentrate enough to write a coherent article at this moment.  I will continue shortly once I sort things out.  There are just too many things from too many flanks.  I'll do some crazy ramblings, even include a couple of links on the meantime.

The Ghost Writer
You may have noticed that oficially there are two writers in this blog, yet all articles (except one) were written by me.  Yet the spark that began many of the articles were the theological and argumentations made between Mildred and myself.  Me being the scientific and calculating mind, she being the intuitive and metaphysical.  Between the two we made lenghty arguments that eventually made the alchemical nature of the posts possible.  Science and the fantastic can coexist.  Mildred never wrote here, but it is as if she did.

A Leap of Faith
Like the song goes - Do You Believe In Magic? 

It all depends on what you are looking for.  We live on the fantastic everyday, if we look correctly.  The Celestial Mechanics guide us ( in ways unimagined.  And I am not talking astrology now, but more in terms of synchronicity (  This is the sort of crossroads I am right now.  Mildred began this, now these two childhood friends continue an uncharted course.  It took a large leap of faith to even follow this course.  Will it be best on the long run?

One of Jung's favourite quotes on synchronicity was from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, in which the White Queen says to Alice: "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards".[9][10]
'It's very good jam,' said the Queen.
'Well, I don't want any TO-DAY, at any rate.'
'You couldn't have it if you DID want it,' the Queen said. 'The rule is,
jam to-morrow and jam yesterday--but never jam to-day.'
'It MUST come sometimes to "jam to-day,"' Alice objected.
'No, it can't,' said the Queen. 'It's jam every OTHER day: to-day isn't any OTHER day, you know.'
'I don't understand you,' said Alice. 'It's dreadfully confusing!'
'That's the effect of living backwards,' the Queen said kindly: 'it always makes one a little giddy at first--'
'Living backwards!' Alice repeated in great astonishment. 'I never heard of such a thing!'
'--but there's one great advantage in it, that one's memory works both ways.'
'I'm sure MINE only works one way,' Alice remarked. 'I can't remember things before they happen.'
'It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards,' the Queen remarked.
So Far It Is Working
Strange thing is.  All seems to be fitting a pattern.  A strange pattern.  Still I don't understand all the pieces, but feel they are fitting.  Like something out of a plot of a movie,  Let's say Mecanica Celeste (Venezuela, 1995):
Celestial Clockwork (1995) »Mécaniques célestes (original title)
Ana bolts from her wedding altar and flies from Venezuela to Paris (in her wedding gown) to realize her dream of becoming a great opera star. The great Parisian director Italo Medici is filming an operatic Cinderella, but will Ana "fit into the glass slipper" before she is deported back to Caracas? The evil, plotting, self-absorbed Celeste tries to thwart Ana, but Ana has a great team in her corner: her Russian voice coach, a wealthy lesbian psychoanalyst, a prescient gay waiter/astrologer, and a voodoo witch doctor. Fun and adventurous.

More Changes Ahead
The Long Winding Road
Mildred always had an eye for the fantastic.  We both face a new road, we decided to value our friendship and our son more than the domestic bickering.  We are at the transition period.  Its rough and patchy but all seems to be reaching a resolution.

Something New on the Horizon
What fate awaits thee?
New opportunities.  A brave new world.  In my case, something unexpected (actually something sweet and pretty) that makes the burden lighter.  Time for a related music video...

A Pisces lady loves romance (She loves romance)
Her movements tell you at a glance (She loves to dance)
Why they say Pisces rules the dance (She's got the glance)

She values flowers more than gold (She flows like gold)
Thinks of her men as knights of old (She's never bold)
She's very spiritual I'm told (She has never told)

Logic can take the backstage for a while.  I have the right to be a bit irrational at this stage.  Will both phases of my personna reach a resolution again?  Only time will tell. 
Thanks to Mr. Montt, always being able to express things so simply.

End of the Rant
Later Days

I never realized there were two writers in your blog.

There is a single writer Kofla. I write all the articles (except one). However, some of the articles are based on lengthy discussions made between Mildred and myself. I find those discussions invigorating as both learned something new and thought it worth of sharing. Thus, it was as if she wrote some of the articles with her opinionated self. I am also an opinionated person, but I am always willing to retrace my path.
It is also why you will usually see two sides on the stories and the happy medium reached in the articles.
As new roads develop I may be switching the angles of some things. I have been piqued by a good story. If it turns out good I may be writing or drawing on it at some point. But that has also been another angle of this blog, it ebbs and flows with the tide of my feelings. It is not written with a specific agenda on mind.
I haven't felt much like drawing lately (correction: drawing something coherent) but that trend won't last too long.
So, we'll just see where the tide takes us these next few months.
