THE GEM 14 OCTOBER 2018 : NEVER TRAVEL FAR WITHOUT A ROPE! AND ONE THAT IS LONG AND STRONG AND LIGHT. IT MAY BE A HELP IN MANY NEEDS. -J.R.R. TOLKIEN, THE LORD OF THE RINGS

I am at the ship’s prow. I am no longer the suicide with her raft and paddle. Herr Doktor! I’ll no longer die to spite you, you wallowing seasick grounded man.
Anne Sexton (1928-1974), U.S. poet. “The Doctor of the Heart.”

THE GEM 13 OCTOBER 2018 : “THERE IS A NEED TO FIND AND SING OUR OWN SONG, TO STRETCH OUR LIMBS AND SHAKE THEM IN A DANCE SO WILD THAT NOTHING CAN ROOST THERE, THAT STIRS THE YEARNING FOR SOLITARY VOYAGE.” BARBARA LAZEAR ASCHER

I cannot dance upon my Toes— No Man instructed me— But oftentimes, among my mind, A Glee possesseth me, That had I Ballet knowledge— Would put itself abroad In Pirouette to blanch a Troupe— Or lay a Prima, mad, And though I had no Gown of Gauze— No Ringlet, to my Hair, Nor hopped to Audiences—like Birds, One Claw upon the Air, Nor tossed my shape in Eider Balls, Nor rolled on wheels of snow Till I was out of sight, in sound, The House encore me so— Nor any know I know the Art I mention—easy—Here— Nor any Placard boast me— It’s full as Opera—I Cannot Dance Upon My ToesEmily Dickinso

Lenore: Do you know who this is?
Crowd: Scaramouche!
Lenore: Scaramouche, yes. But who is Scaramouche? And why does he hide his face behind a mask? You don’t know? Then I’ll tell you. Scaramouche is a fool, a genius, a ne’er-do-well, a saint; fickle, adoring, false and true together; woman’s enemy, and the one thing she can’t do without: a man!
