  • S5 Episode 11 – Super good guy “I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence.

  • S5 Episode 6 – A restoration The dove descending breaks the air With flame of incandescent terror Of which the tongues declare The one discharge from sin and error. The only hope, or else despair Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre- To be redeemed from fire by fire.   Who then devised the torment? Love. Love is the unfamiliar […] No responses October 19, 2016
  • S5 Episode 5 – Blizzard of gold “Say your prayers in a garden early, ignoring steadfastly the dew, the birds and the flowers, and you will come away overwhelmed by its freshness and joy; go there in order to be overwhelmed and, after a certain age, nine times out of ten nothing will happen to you.” – C.S.
