Nor Earth Nor Boundless Sea

‘Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop.

And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard.’ : Haruki Murakami.

 

 

 

 

 

Sweaty Betty has many faces. I wondered how she would manifest in the Mindlines.

 

 

Mary Wollstonecraft.

 

 

 

 

From The Conversation.com :

‘A small naked female figure in silvered bronze emerges out of a swirling mass of organic matter. There is something excitingly unexpected about it all. Although not everyone shares this opinion of the recently unveiled memorial in north London to the feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) by the artist Maggi Hambling CBE.

The statue is a project ten years in the making – but centuries overdue. Wollstonecraft was one of the most defiant and intelligent voices in the period of our nation’s history which is often termed the Enlightenment (1715 – 1789). The arguments she advanced for women’s equality feel familiar today, but they were radical in her age.

Wollstonecraft paid a high personal cost for making her voice heard. Vilified in society as an adulteress and for conceiving a child out of wedlock, her unorthodoxy was condemned by the very society she worked to improve. But her political writings are extraordinary documents, including letters in close dialogue with the leading thinkers and events of the day.’

 

And a few observations. The statue makes her look very Amazonian but I know from trips to the Tate Modern in London, sometimes you have to see the artwork up close to make a true judgement. Also many moons ago every six months my crystal warehouse company would attend a stone show in North London and I would drive pass the green in Newington Green where the statue is. Seems a strange place to put ‘Mary on the Green’.

 

 

Get Naked.

 

 

And the Enlightenment.

 

 

The Universe is nothing but mischievous. Mary Wollenstonecraft was the mother of Mary Shelley who wrote Frankenstein and published on 1/1/1818.

 

 

Looking Good !

 

 

 

We were created together and as One.

      I was thinking about Southend the other day. In an alternative reality maybe Eastenders is known as Southenders.

              And I suppose it shows what a caring Universe it is. There are a mass of people who desperately want to help you reduce your energy costs. So kind of them. Brings tiers to my eyes.

    1. Apres Moi, Le Deluge.

      And Madame Pompadour.

      “Après moi, le déluge” (pronounced [apʁɛ mwa lə delyʒ]; lit. ‘After me, the flood’) is a French expression attributed to King Louis XV of France, or in the form “Après nous, le déluge” (pronounced [apʁɛ nu lə delyʒ]; lit. ‘After us, the flood’) to Madame de Pompadour, his favourite. It is generally regarded as a nihilistic expression of indifference to whatever happens after one is gone, though it may also express a more literal forecasting of ruination. Its meaning is translated by Brewer in the forms “When I am dead the deluge may come for aught I care”, and “Ruin, if you like, when we are dead and gone.”

      1. There is an inevitability about all this. As in trying to hold back the flood.
        The D H Lawrence quote, “you mustn’t expect it to wait for your convenience”.

        The memory, the flood, and Atlantis. The Origin Mystery. The gene, the plague and the world.
        We are so close.

          I’ve mentioned about time going backwards and forwards to 2016. I think it may have gone forward from 2012 – 2016 and back from 2020 -2016. Jenny heard yesterday about someone who said the year was 2016.

          And we’ve seen individual people and pets turn up in the movies and Out There. Even bits of personal furniture are showing up now.

    ‘Pope Francis caught the attention of social media users after he liked a raunchy photo on Instagram, and people have been reacting on Twitter.

    Everyone’s made the same mistake of liking someone’s Instagram by accident at least once in their life.

    You’re scrolling down somebody’s feed, usually stalking an ex or somebody’s new girlfriend, and when you’re 234 weeks deep in photos, the dreaded white heart pops up on the screen. The embarrassment is like no other, and you quickly click off the screen in hope that you won’t be confronted about the situation.

    It happens to all of us, but someone Internet users certainly didn’t expect it to happen to is Pope Francis.

    The head of the Catholic Church has liked an Instagram model’s photo, and it’s had internet users in stitches.’

    1. Frank the fish lady Sturgeon who replaced the fish man Mr Salmon has banned slapping, I don’t know I thought being slapped with a fish was quite fin.

      over to John Fin ney sorry I fin d that quite fin ny.

      The legislation, Mr Finney said will give children the same protection from assault as adults – banning parents smacking, skelping, slapping and pinching their children.

      A spokesman for the Be Reasonable Scotland campaign, a group consisting of a group of parents, academics, and politicians warned the SNP governments’ “mask had slipped”.

      and that slippery Sturgeon better watch out.

      He said: “Red-faced government officials have quietly tweaked advice on the gov.scot site after a wide back lash. They say that walking the plank is a suitable alternative.

      “Perhaps they realised that people in Scotland are not all on-board the ship with the idea that ordinary, loving parents should be reported to the police via a 999 call for tapping a child on the bum.

      Of course it’s all about timing, the fish lady had to wait until that great Scottish icon for independence the Bond age had gone to his watery grave as she wouldn’t want to lose his sup port.

      I think you are seeing correctly. I think that you were born in the Tethys Ocean says something profound.

      ‘The Tethys Ocean /ˈtiːθɪs, ˈtɛθɪs/ (Greek: Τηθύς Tēthús), also called the Tethys Sea or the Neotethys, was an ocean during much of the Mesozoic Era located between the ancient continents of Gondwana and Laurasia, before the opening of the Indian and Atlantic oceans during the Cretaceous Period.

      The name stems from the mythological Greek sea goddess Tethys, sister and consort of Oceanus, mother of the great rivers, lakes, and fountains of the world and of the Oceanid sea nymphs.’

      We are all enmeshed in this in some way. There seems to be a personal and collective ‘something’ which merges and intertwines in ways we don’t see through our conscious mind. I think. Or the conscious mind is deliberately programmed not to see, maybe a better way of putting it.

      About the flamingos. OMG. Absolutely breathtaking. Beautiful. Thanks.

      And The Birds continually show. Yesterday Jenny and me watched the Rebecca movie again. On second viewing one of the things that jumped out was a Bird scene.

      The movie is based in Cornwall which is a county in England and has roots for me and looks like for Jenny. What we’ve forgotten. Daphne du Maurier wrote Rebecca and also wrote The Birds which again was set in Cornwall.

    1. CAT 5 Hurricaine hits St Andrew X DNA with the 23 chromosomes.

      I O T A the NINTH letter of the Greek alphabet ( Ι, ι ), transliterated as ‘i’.

      Reminds me of CLAMity Jane that hit Bond DNA on his island of Dr No

      Dorian (/ˈdɔːriən/) is a masculine given name of Greek origin. In Greek, the meaning of the name Dorian is of Doris, a district of Ancient Greece; or of Dorus, a legendary Greek hero. … Another possible origin is the Greek Dorios, meaning ‘CHILD of the SEA’.

      The actor, who turned 89 last month, told the Daily Mail that he and his wife, Micheline rode out Hurricane Dorian from their home in the Ba ham ass.

      The devastating hurricane left the former 007 agent shaken, but not stirred. He must have nine ty lives.

      Wait until the next Hello Kitty Cat 5 comes along.

      Don’t touch this time James in the land of milk and honey it’s safer just to stay a safe distance look at her Shelleys.
