You mean like an exegesis? : ) Definitely not necessary at this end. The spirit of it was glorious. Thank you very much.
>>Perhaps you can tell me something about the kind of research your interested in?<<
Oh, I'm very much a cross-disciplinarian (lol, a "poacher" in some quarters; a "dilettante" in others). I look for truths, small "t" that might serve to to help us to remember the Truth, capital "t." We all have a piece of it, IMHO, light and shadow. I'm supposed to be a Philosophy and English major, but I earn a modest living by bookkeeping and the odd networking job (talk about left brain/right brain -- can't multi-task to save my life though). Mostly I raise my kids and try to stay on the good side of the real power around here. ;)
How about you, Rob? Is it true you're communicating from 10 x 10 command bunker with a CRAY, HALON extinguishers, and a clandestine fibre optic link to every database at Oxford? Lol - it's how I've pictured you these past months, Wagner full blast in the background, lolling back in a captain's chair that would do the Enterprise proud, beatific smile on your face, conducting idly with one hand and uploading your latest, eye-popping find to the GHMB with the other. Care to disabuse me? :)
Ps. Thought the Wilde quote was quite apropos to the subject at hand. The Arts themselves can be quite revelatory.
