ANNOUNCING THINGDOM!

This will be brief: 

 

At Long Last, I have an official Thingdom with the man I Love!  –you heard it right!  I now have a Thing with a man I have Loved for years.  

 

Thylias Moss and Bob Holman now have a Thing!  I am so very happy about this.  His idea.  He put his own name there; entirely his choice!

 

me and my Thingdom

Me and my Thingdom

 

Below, How having  a Thing with this wonderful man makes me look.  I am about to turn 64,  at the end of this month, and he is about to turn 70 early next month.

 

 

 

 

He rocks my world!

 

 

 

 

From the First time ever I saw his face! I am in love with him!

Poems forthcoming

Happy to report that I have two poems forthcoming in Michigan Quarterly Review!

 

  1. a collaboration with my Muse (Thomas Robert Higginson): “The Moseying Out Bible”

 

   2. and “Pond, The Morning After Storm”

 

I am very excited to see these poems living on their own, in a journal I admire, and I hope that he does too.  As I do not expect to see the journal until around March, will be a birthday present for him.  I will post more when the issue is published.

 

 

 

SSDI Debacle

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS.jpeg

 

There is only one Thing sustaining me through this mess, My Thing. And he knows this; I don’t know what I would do without him; I really don’t.  

 

He is not  a rich mean, but only the best , man I know for everything , especially me.  And I have only my favorite picture in the world to show “Us” together  in our “US-ness, and I must insert that photo here, for it represents  everything I have dreamed of; he really is the man of my dreams, and I am so glad he exists.  \

 

You know what helps me get through this mess, just knowing that he exists, that he is part of my world.

 

Two friends on a bridge

This is the best moment  of my Life!

 

 

 

 

and, of course, “No One in  the World”

 

 

I can’t forget the Rapture:

 

Dear Dr. Chaudhary,

I am sure that you recall the surgery you performed on me in July 2011, the surgery that saved my life—I always thank you, and the University of Michigan demands  that I repay all the money they overpaid me.  The SSDI department acknowledges that this is their mistake.  They do not celebrate my most unusual survival but expect  me to repay every penny that why overpaid me.  Their own mistake.   I attach documents received from this very university.  
If you would not mind lending me me some support, I would greatly appreciate it.  It is nearly 2018, and they are hounding me even more.Perhaps I will have to send these documents to the Attorney General of Michigan, but I would like to have support form you before I gather the these documents to send.  I would like have a document from you amount what I send.   Being from 2011, this incident is very old. I will begin 2018 tying to eliminate, finally, and and for all, this incident from 2011.  
 
This is what I have including some  photos of how I was,
and the move of my rover when I had to learn to walk again and talk again:
and you should still have the poem, “Aneurysm of the Firmament” that I wrote with my best friend. And this became the title poem of an entire chapbook we wrote together.  The Cover is attached, and he rest of the content. This is an ebook available only on Amazon  

and via  my Amazon author page

The bills from the University of Michigan  itself:

 

SSDI bill 20 November 2017 2

 

Notice that payment for $100.00 –courtesy my Thing, but this by far not the only reason.  He and I have been connected for 30 years, and like any other connection enduring so long,  we have experience every emotion possible to  experience,  we have experienced, but we areaways together aaa=again, that palpable instant chemistry.  I could say more

 

In your case, although retired, the obligation remained for you to follow through with your SSDI claim until a decision was rendered in order for us to properly calculate your past benefit entitlements under the UM LTD Plan.In addition to the reimbursement agreement you signed on 11/21/2013, you acknowledged, upon retirement and in writing, your responsibility to repay the LTD Plan if approved for SSDI. From January 2014 through January 2016, there were also numerous email communications and correspondence via U.S. mail to keep you informed of this responsibility.In January 2016, the Benefits Office learned of your approval for SSDI benefits – A closed period award beginning 3/1/2014 through 5/1/2015. As indicated in your SSDI Notice of Award letter, Social Security calculated your benefits due for this period as $36,276. However, they subtracted $6,000 to pay your attorney. Therefore, you received a lump sum payment from Social Security for $30,276.YOUR OVERPAYMENT & REPAYMENT TO THE UM LTD PLAN: A complete analysis of your UM LTD income payment history in combination with your monthly SSDI benefit reflects that you have been overpaid by the LTD Plan in the gross amount of $33,628 from 3/1/2014 through 4/30/2015. You may refer to the enclosed worksheet to see how this amount was calculated.Because you retained an attorney to pursue SSDI benefits, the UM LTD Plan will offset your gross overpayment by the amount that Social Security withheld from your lump sum SSDI award. In your case, Social Security deducted $6,000 out of your lump sum award to pay your attorney.The gross overpayment amount indicated above may be further reduced in your favor to offset for tax adjustments. The tax adjustment analysis to determine the net repayment amount is completed by the Payroll Office.In summary, you have been overpaid in the net amount of $27,292.56 as previously indicated in the letter dated 1/25/2016 from the Benefits Office. While the UM LTD Plan provisions state that lump sum repayments must be made within 30 days, we understand extenuating circumstances arise.Therefore, we can offer the following repayment options, which provide some flexibility, but also remain consistent with the LTD Plan provisions and what other LTD Participants have been provided.Repayment Option #1: Repay the amount owed to the university in one lump sum. In this case, you would have to repay $27,292.56. This amount can be honored as long as you repay the UM LTD Plan in lump sum by 12/1/2016.– OR –Repayment Option #2: Repay the full, gross amount owed to the UM LTD Plan over a 24-month period. In this case, you would have to submit monthly payments of $1,401.17 for 24 consecutive months resulting in a total repayment of $33,628 to the UM LTD Plan. By choosing this option, you will forfeit your right to receive the $6,000 credit for your attorney fees and applicable tax adjustments. We request your first monthly payment be made to the Benefits Office by 3/31/2016.You may make your lump sum payment by check, or your first monthly payment by check, payable to The University of Michigan. In the memo field of your check, please note “LTD Plan Repayment” and include your UMID number.Thank you in advance for your prompt response and attention to this matter. We ask you or your attorney to please confirm your selected repayment option via email to LTDbenefits@umich.edu. You may also use the enclosed pre-addressed envelope to confirm your repayment option and/or submit your LTD repayment.Sincerely,Meaghan HaasBenefits Manager, Long-Term Disability Program cc: William Crawforth—————I offer the entire content of the chapbook, “Aneurysm of the Firmament ” here, for saale on Amazon an an e-book here:                        ANEURYSM OF THE FIRMAMENTa small gathering of poems in response to many things when the sky ruptured! (mostly through responses to writings of Thomas Higginson and Tardis Universes: the day I became a Whovian again)Thylias Moss ANEURYSM OF FIRMAMENT  Piñata sky broken, ruptured! –what stick hit it?  — what cosmic event cracked it open?  (–good thing it did!–) –comets and more rain of treats light itself showers down BRIGHT beltsropes a boxing match light swirls into poles & other delights –such RUPTUREmy brain the sun in the solar system I amRUPTURED! solar flaressolar winds & even more!the sun becomes a red giant,& I direct traffic!from the center of Botticelli’s paintingthe birth of brown Venus, sheer sparkling gauze over me as Gallifrey burnsBuckwheat’s hair on fire–fountains of luminous combustion!13 Doctors healthis blazing epidemiceach regeneration of the Doctor has himproduce spiky burning armsfountains of illuminated spikeseach a protrusion from the head  of a hijacked Cameroonian stink ant! sparklers                                                                                                  pinwheels kaboom, kaboom, kaboom moreandmoreDaleksfall no rupture, and no light!something has to break!Part 3comets have to fall, and fall hard, into Midnight Sun, 1961 Twilight Zone  –optical illusion dimensions –sun enlarges and enlargesimminent end of Earth. At last… Poor Norma… Last one left in apartment building –blood is boiling –rupture is about to happen –I will bleed again, a crazed menstrual  cycle (Norma was dreaming, sick and feverish –escaped the chill really going on –either way, Earth in atypical orbit):–post-menopausal now, so this blood comes from my head:this is the way the world endsall condemned by existencelightning illuminating those veins in the ceiling that is firmamentGallifrey all lightning; seems to exist only when there’s hocus pocus of fire … but this time, Gallifrey is saved, by Time Lords, who?

I DID NOT OVERPAY MYSELF!

 

I WAS DYING IN A HOSPITAL! HOW DARE THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN EXPECT ME TO PAY THEM BACK IN FULL FOR THEIR OWN  MISTAKE! 

 

Dr. Neeraj Chaudhary saved my life! It would have been better for the University if I had died, as I told Meaghan Hass, and Stacy Orban, of theUniversity’s Long-Term Disability which I refused to accept any more of once I was released on 9 October 2011

 

I did the right thing, but so what?

 

 

Celebrating Thingdom!

I Thylias Moss, author of 13 published bbooks, incluiding the roance novel, “New Kiss Horizon” recently nominated for a “Book Excellence Award”:

 

NKH WITH BADGEwould also like to announce my “Thingdom“:

 

Thingdom happened on the anniversaty of seeing him in Chicago, 23 October through 26 October.  In the photo, we stand on a bridge in Chicago, IL, and a bridge is somethign that connects things, help them to get past troubled water, for one thing.

 

thingdom 2

 

It has been a long time coming, and I am so glad that it is here.  There is no better man in the world, I assure you of that! No one knows better what a “New Kiss Horizon”  is than this man, because he made it with me.  There is “No One” able to say anything contrary and be telling the truth, “No One” as in Alicia Keys, the theme song of “Thingdom”: (He calls me “Dream Baby“)

We’re in this love together!

 

 I assure you that he and I were on a “Freeway of Love”every moment that we were in Chicago, makin that weekend famous:

 

Thingdom

I am very pleased to announce my thingdom with a man I have loved for several years. Yes; Thingdom on Facebook.  Where the entire romance with, well, Bob Holman began.  Photo taken in Chicago, Illinois, our first weekend together.

 

In the photo, I am 60 and he is 66.  I do not know who took it, an anonymous person happy to see ths elderly couple taking a walk in Chicago.  We stopped and stood on ths bridge that connects us to every possibility of life.  

 

Now we are a thing! –hallelujah!

 

a whole weekend of firsts! 23 October – 25 October every year!

For this anniversary a most special song, full of meaning for us, “No One” Alicia Keys:

 

 

 

 

Isn’t Love wonderful at any age!

fork

To begin with what happens when saying fork in English, when a native speaker, to limit1 1to be dealt more fully later although fullness and limit may seem opposed unless

contemplating a situation, such as existence, that is full of limits, which perhaps would be a waste of an opportunity to be full; an existence full of limits just outright seems incapable of exploiting fullness, well, fully. Of late, limit has taken on a link (difficult to limit or prevent associations when information is electrically imprinted in a neural network, the apparently simultaneous deployment of soft anchors to multiple neural information hubs, attaching another facet to each info group (soft because of their plasticity, ability to be reworked, to bend, to expand). More research is needed here, more experimentation which certain funding sources would want to limit to non- human subjects, fearing monsters before the trials conclude with, ideally, near-perfect methods and interventions that control how information is processed in the brain, maybe even a junk section that the limited thinker could empty through a programmable sequence of blinks and grunts. It would be great to see something emptying from the brain’s disposal portal, to see a stream of junk info flowing out of a head into a sewer (the electrical discharge associated with emptying the junk bin perhaps could be amplified with some small —I’m thinking nano—device implanted somewhere in the nervous system, allowing the discharge to be simulated visually and/or sonically—maybe technology developed from the work that has resulted in the vOIce project Seeing with Sound in which the totally blind can see: http://  www.seeingwithsound.com/).

5that is: what these terms also look like in a mirror, specifically: gravitational mirroring,6

6subjected to an intensity such that there is displacement; the reflection as visual echo, reverberations of the deflecting encounter, a repositioning relocating the mirage, the dictionary and the anti-dictionary7

7As on an episode of Columbo, his hair as black as deep space gravity can look, the black of gravity’s effect in and near a black hole also a mirror; the episode in which a genius club member murders a rival genius by dictionary with the help of an umbrella and Tchaikovsky’s overture to Romeo and Juliet.

the mirage and its double, the meanings and the other meanings; the deviation that opens something, a little split so that meanings can be biopsied to determine what else, what they really contain

a term which isn’t exactly double-edged, as native3 has more than two edges, so is crystalline in structure, each edge further edged as magnification, beyond this text focus, can reveal; but I do mean specifically two edges, and the doubling of edge-intensity, so sharper effects17 are achieved— even though positioning on the edge might be problematic, the apparently increased opportunity to fall off that edge, even if edge is a nod to the progressive—and such a fall is particularly problematic since no drop-off range has been indicated, so it would be a fall off the edge into nothing, and this is not the place, no matter how intense—or edged—the interest becomes to fall into a discussion of the physics and philosophical implications of a fall into something defined as nothing, nothing indicating some form of negative space even though landing in negative space is exactly where the use of native also arrives, negative as in derogatory, negative as in less than zero, outside of the range of what can be detected by the unassisted senses (including assistance with anti-discrimination legislation).8

8consider the less-than-zero position in society of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man

who says in the prologue:

I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me…That invisibility to which I refer occurs because of a peculiar disposition of the eyes of those with whom I come in contact. A matter of the construction of their inner eyes, those eyes with which they look through their physical eyes upon reality.

Those sensitive (I mean me and others) might perceive (the perception encasing what is perceived in a reality, perception treating the object of perception as fact in the manner of its actual [in the fact of the manner of its] imprinting into neural networks where imprint sorting along a reality gradient does not occur) misuse in the usage being risked here;

a native speaker then, someone speaking a language as a first language of that speaker in a location where that language is commonly spoken, the language of the country of the person’s birth, even if the language of this country is not the native language of that country, meaning not the first or original language of that country, but an imported language, as in a non-indigenous species that thrives (possibly via chokehold) in new surroundings whose threats successful against other species, perhaps other native species, are no threats to the transplant, so to speak English in North America is not to speak the language native to North America. The native languages, to use another out-of- fashion, out-of-taste, pretty much out-of-any-redeeming-value value of native, not even a redeeming mirage; the native languages of North America would be the languages of the native populations or savages, the uncivilized, designations easier to make if the tongue is forked, split,9 able to speak from both sides of the mouth simultaneously,

9the forked or split tongue suggests the possibility of torture technique to carry out the splitting, the work of single or double-edged splitters, such as the magic used to split Anderson’s Little Mermaid’s fish tail, reverberations and echoes of the split experienced each time she walks, splitting again the consequences of her decision into knives and forks, utensils that are means to access something, their purpose being to assist with access, as in extending access to higher social classes through use of the right fork with each course of the meal.

to state and contradict simultaneously, to juxtapose, to increase the likelihood of consistent indication of the presence of alternative, to more authentically represent the existence of multiplicity of meaning, to simulate justice through pointing to more than one way, to be pro-choice of expression, to be indecisive, unable or unwilling to commit to a single path, to extend the tongue’s pickup ability through adding functionality similar to chopsticks, the forked tongue is also

able to wrap its two serpent-prongs or tines around a single chopstick or similar stem so as to form a mouth-borne caduceus, a figure associated with healing; a forked tongue may also become a plaited tongue, a fashion statement in word and appearance.

To fork is to have more than one way to go, to split, to increase options, each one of which may be referred to as a prong or tine. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to create a system of bifurcations, possibly to choose a particular avenue of tine for some period of time. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to access something and make what is accessed useable by decreasing distance from what is accessed and the user of the fork. To fork is to lift. To fork is to dig into and possibly separate or filter with the branches or prongs. There is definitely the likelihood of loss, through the branches or prongs, of some portion of what is being accessed, what is being forked up. To fork is to support with the fork. To fork is to be at the location or to the location where something splits into more parts. To split is to divide into more parts; the earthquake forks the house, the bridge, the road. The coroner forks the cadaver in an autopsy. The broken bone is a forked bone. A yodel is a forking note. A tree is a bifurcating system of branches. A root system is a bifurcating system of branches. The bifurcated mandrake. A bifurcating system is a forking system. Each evolutionary branch and sub-branch is an evolutionary fork or sub-fork. What a fork manages to lift is a forkful even if the fork is not at maximum lift capacity. The arm and hand system is a forking system. The digits or fingers of the hand are bifurcations or tines, usually articulated tines; a bird’s foot, the articulated robotic hand of The Terminator;10 the articulated robotic claw in those grab-a-toy mechanical gyp-boxes such as was in the lobby of my local Chi-chi’s before closure and is still in the lobby of my local branch (fork) of the Quality 16 cinema chain (forked system) where Limited Fork Poetics11 was born. Tyne12 Daly is       being inducted right now into a branch of the fork hall of fame. The twin (or two-pronged) towers

of the World Trade Center system had a system of exterior forks as part of the structural and aesthetic integrity of the WTC.13

10 A film in three, to date, parts or tines (forks) featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger in a branch (or fork) of his career as the title character, from a fork of future that is also a fork of past, who attempts create an alternative tine of future by using a present moment (the now in which the movie takes place) as a bifurcation point

12Tyne Daly played “Mary Beth Lacey,” a detective on the television crime drama “Cagney and Lacey”; her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is marked by five bifurcation points (locations to which forking has arrived and/or locations from which forking can proceed). Tyne is the name of a river system in England. A tributary or branch of a river may be considered a tine of the river; such a river is forked. A fork in a road is a bifurcation point, a location where a road or segment of a road splits into at least one additional segment. Tyne is considered a variation, or branch, of Tine which is considered a branch or bifurcation of Martina and Tina.

Tine is the name of a Norwegian dairy producer also Norway’s biggest food company (at the time of this writing), a name that resonates (a bifurcating gesture or movement; the rippling water forks; branches of a forking system need not be straight and need not remain straight if they are or become straight for some length of time) in Norway as reference to a bentwood box used in the 17th century and later for carrying and storing food, primarily butter and cheese.14, 15

The eating utensil fork can be unforgiving, can bully the

steak, the chicken, the prime rib; the eating utensil fork can hold the meat in place, prevent it from sliding on the smooth surface of a plate so that big meat can be cut done to pieces of a size easy to handle and swallow; the larger incarnation is a carving fork that holds in place bigger meat that will be cut, dissected into individual servings; scissors17 are on an evolutionary branch of the fork family.

This consideration of fork has been forking in order to consider fork; this commentary has forked as literary device; when not a verb, when not involved in activity (see flux), when a noun, a fork is commonly a device or tool. The tines of a fork system need not be in direct

contact with the handle or concept but can be; the branches of the fork may be linked to it remotely or through metaphor. There is no maximum number of tines that a fork may have. A fork may have both direct and indirect tines attached to it. Tines need not be linear. Each tine may support multiple bifurcation points. A maze or labyrinth is a forking system. The space between tines may be wide or narrow. Whether wide or narrow, the fork may lose something or some part of something to the spaces between. When the space between tines is sufficiently small, it may not be possible to perceive the presence of any space between the tines without the aid of instruments calibrated to measure on the scale of gap. When the space between tines is imperceptible on a scale of human aided or unaided perception, the fork may be considered as and may function practically as a shovel. A shovel plays less a role in flux than does fork. A snow shovel is usually a device to lift snow. A snow fork is a device or instrument that measures properties of snow.18A snow fork could also be a fork made of snow or a fork in which some of the tines are snow-covered for some period of time.

18 See a snow fork here: Toikka oy

and read about how the snow fork functions.19 19 Footnotes are tines and sub-tines

Many dead-ends are also tines.

A conjoined twin is a forked twin.

HD DVD’s and Blu-Ray discs are tines, one of which may remain open and likely to produce more tines, one of which may become a dead end.

A circular closed tine may also be hoop, ring, loop, feedback loop; a system of at least two closed tine loops can also be used to indicate infinity or the bones of a bow tie. Apple Computer’s address: One Infinite Loop is a fork of grab, the tines so close together they seem one, a fist, a forkful that is a handful, a hand closed around what a fork has grasped and not letting go; a palm reader reads forks, a palm reader navigates forks, a palm tree is a binary fork system, as are most trees: bifurcating roots20 and bifurcating branches,21 the apple, fig, coconut; fruit as bulbous tines, grapes as bulbous tines in clusters, wine as bulbous tines liquefied; the nervous system is a forking system as is My Galactic Octopus,22 as is the nervous system of an octopus, as is an octopus.

limited

…for it is known that there are boundaries whether or not the exact nature of a boundary is known at any given moment or can be known at some specified moment; indeed, the abilit y t o s pe c if y a mome nt demonstrates a means of isolating a moment, of focusing on a moment, to discard what is not part of a specified moment, to exclude that which is not part of the moment being considered, to be able to exert parameters of confinement, to filter, to distill, to deal with specified parts, to develop and apply rules of focus, rules of concentration, parameters of inclusion, to be unable to exceed something, to be at capacity, not possible to go further, the inadequacy of knowledge, just short of cure, finite cap to any number of infinities within the borders, the point beyond which there is nothing, the privilege of being on the other side of nothing, exclusive, only for those with certain specifications, qualifica tions, restricted, location of power, wealth, pulls out all the stops, makes few stops along the trip, the laws that limit, that curb power, owners of a company legally responsible for no more than the capital invested, cannot be exceeded, the pinnacle, the best, for once and for all, the best film (etc.) to remain the best each year until a new film stretches the limit, raises the bar, otherwise, Shakespeare wins Nobel prize for literature year after year after year, the line between possible and i m p o s s i b l e , p e r m i s s i b l e a n d prohibited, a limit can be in flux, new data can push, revise, reassign limits, the limit of one circumstance is not necessarily the limit of any other circumstance, a limit may be shared, may be disputed, a speed limit can be

exceeded, often with consequences, to exceed the limit of the speed of light is to have to rethink ideas that have exceeded the appropriate limits or brakes easily placed on ideas, becoming fundamental concepts instead, the foundation of other truths of existence, to be limited: to be without much talent or promise, consigned to be pretty much the way it is now, in need of air, water, nutrients, limited to need something outside of self.

mezzy

first off: variation of mezze: a Mediterranean appetizer because there is always hunger,

some of which is for the mezzy of existence, for essence, for the exceeding of apparent limits, for a way to stretch, for exquisite, for elegant, for any purpose, the spiritual mezzy, the mezzy art as a means of elevation, the physical mezzy, visible architecture, structures, houses of mezzy evidence, a restaurant in Oakland, the mezze of poetry: the endless feast for the insatiable appetite for meaning, luminous resonance, toward zenith, little bits of tasty treats to please the palate, syllables, stanzas, the delight of poam, planned or impromptu, get some mezzy here: The Mezzy Factor, here: The Mezzy           Factor continues, and here: The Inevitable Mezzy of Poetry; the mezzy of ability to locate and taste the delicious, to have no significant limit to how much mezzy can be tolerated, to feast today, to feast now and be full, extended, ascending, zenith-bound only to have the sun set, to experience digestion, the extraction of nutrients, shrinkage of the consumed, the bounded, the limited via consumption mezzy, to have room for more mezzy, to make room for more mezzy, to need to consume more, to be unable to exhaust the mezzy supply, to be limited to seeking, desiring mezzy, popular mezze dishes include: babaghanoush, tabbouleh, rocket salad (salatat jarjir), kibbeh, shanklish, sausages that are treasure chests opened with bites, mezzy menus that are on tables of content, search results such as the menu of mezzy results when Tokyo Butter opens, the Song there, the mezzy that sings, Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonders, Everything that Rises, Andrew Zimmern’s bizarre foods, the taste of everything, when mezzy morsels rot, when mezzy morsels decompose, the result is more mezzy, maggot pilgrims come to mezzy the mezzy, it cannot get putrid enough to completely wreck the mezzy, oh instead it can putridly enhance, there is the mezzy of putrefaction, the toxic is an edible idea, the mezzy of idea, taste of whole Google earth, whole shebang food, what is possible to be forked, a mezzy is a forkful, the engine, the power of the universe, the fuel and the fuel burner is a mezzy cooker, whatever exists is a         mezzy cook, to catch snowflakes on the tongue, to run through hordes of fireflies and locusts with the mouth open is to be mezzy ready, mezzy receptive, and a little bit of a beautiful fool.

scale

It’s about time to fork this into perspectives, about time to weigh and determine what’s present, what’s active according to perspectives accessible without devices and with devices designed to extend (within the limits of their making) what the senses can access, it’s time to scale this, remove those lime deposits, the tartar on teeth, the tiles on butterflies, moths, fish, preparing them for something else, to be of more use on a human, a specific cultural perspective, let’s supply context, a way to order, a musical sequence, order of magnitude, duration, to interpret, a way to check the reasonableness, a table of feasibility, the various tracts and tracks of time, relativity of perspective, dry skin, a basic feather, to scale: to remove scales, to cross scale quickly, to move by powers of ten, to use metaphor as a tool to cross scale, seeking symmetry, seeking archetypal patterns on multiple scales, the repetition of form in the universe, the redundancy of basic forms with which to build endless variety, distribution, graphs, maps, diagrams, the Mandelbrot set, scale models, in proportion, chains, justice, measure, relative size, enlarge, shrink, fractals, the repetition of propagation, scale, rate of change, saturation, the temperature scale, increments of measure, processing units, local events on a local scale, magnification reveals scale toward the smaller, toward the larger, telescope, microscope, tele-scale, micro-scale, impact, determination of significance, insignificance and the relative meaning, impact of these determinations on various and across scales, a tool for setting balance, tone, scale factor for the expansion of the universe, for the collapse, dimensions, the boundaries of accountability, obesity monitor, a scale factor multiplies, the perception of wow intensified, multiplied as Grant Williams as The Incredible Shrinking Man shrank away, dissipated, the rate: scale of his dissipation correlated to the rate: scale of expansion of his awareness of the scale of this, his place value, the scale of placement of exponents, superscripts, approximations, greater than, less than enclosures, how something is seen, how something can be seen, alternative representation of the same, of similar information, packaging, integrity manager, what is being considered, what is available, scale of the undertaking, of the menu, ratio, Fujita scale of tornadic activity, Beaufort scale of wind activity (includes reference to horse heads which scale for me a silhouette that embraces fiddles, and the related, on that scale, treble clef of seahorse), the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity, to be scales, to be evaluated, rated, assigned a relative position, family of man (includes these forks: women, children, ~97% of chimpanzee DNA).

simultaneity

Stop right here

Simultaneity should not be last

If simultaneity exists, it is not last

So while a linear scale managed progress through the layout of these definitions, in truth, fork, flux, limited, mezzy, scale, simultaneity existed concurrently

on different scales, at different rates of changes, different levels of perceptibility, different and multiple locations; all have been present in some form(s) in some location(s).

The pattern of distribution of these elements is not necessarily linear, but any flux portion forked for examination may be perceived or momentarily limited to parameters of investigation in which a linear assessment makes sense and on the scale of circumstances being considered, linear behavior manifests, holds true for calculations and observations while at the same time, in a larger consideration, on a different scale, assessments may need adjusting, for what works, what makes sense, what has truth and mezzy on a particular scale may fail, that failure offering a mezzy of failure, as scale shifts, what makes sense shifts, what has truth shifts, mezzy shifts; the mezzy constant is the existence of, the persistence of a form of mezzy.

Is it that the forms of what exists on each scale on which something exists are necessarily changing? No.

Just watching it can change its behavior.

It probably has behavior without being watched.

But one possibility of simultaneity is that of consensus, that of conspiring to maintain the simultaneous existence itself; the collective exertion of belief in the shared existence projects that existence, that limit of what is; the mezzy of collaboration, for everything existing to manifest some element, some evidence (presently detectable by others or not, whose development of tools to detect presences is usually constrained by the ways in which those developers have been shaped by perceiving to seek [perceptible] evidence) of presence on some scale for some period of time, measured according to some perspective, on some scale so that there is no universal time for the simultaneous manifestation of presence.

Simultaneity then suggests occurrence during a shared unit of time, the length or duration, the experience of the shared unit differing according to the perspective of the constituents sharing the unit of time; it isn’t even the same time on earth, separation of hours, of degree, scale of light, darkness; for some hours (relative to a computation of hour in this solar system on this planet) of a day (relative to a computation of day in this solar system on this planet in this galaxy in this universe) it isn’t even the same day on earth, all inhabitants of earth do not use the same calendar; from each scale, from each perspective, there is a different implication of simultaneity.

I do like the starburst model of simultaneous acceleration of the known universe, the universe in which there is some trusted evidence of occupancy, other universes, which may exist simultaneously, at this moment (scale of time) existing speculatively, existing in hopes, wishes, imagination so is real there, in the realm of limits of mind, existing if not

exactly parallel, then with the external mostly-three-dimensional (it seems) universe; I do like the shape of that more- or-less uniform expansion, the idea of growth in all directions, with little detectable discrimination, as eager a move toward heavens as toward hells; I do like the distribution of growth occurring as air imparts growth to a balloon, and while there may not be precisely equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, if the balloon model of universe is accurate; while there may not be equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, I envision a mezzy of curved, of eccentric fork tines; I envision a luminous chrysanthemum of petals and flowers extending in arcs and curves, bends, luminous warps and displacements, forever fading, forever fizzling, dropping seeds,     manufacturing more cool, way cool universes, antiverses.

fork

To begin with what happens when saying fork in English, when a native speaker, to limit1 1to be dealt more fully later although fullness and limit may seem opposed unless

contemplating a situation, such as existence, that is full of limits, which perhaps would be a waste of an opportunity to be full; an existence full of limits just outright seems incapable of exploiting fullness, well, fully. Of late, limit has taken on a link (difficult to limit or prevent associations when information is electrically imprinted in a neural network, the apparently simultaneous deployment of soft anchors to multiple neural information hubs, attaching another facet to each info group (soft because of their plasticity, ability to be reworked, to bend, to expand). More research is needed here, more experimentation which certain funding sources would want to limit to non- human subjects, fearing monsters before the trials conclude with, ideally, near-perfect methods and interventions that control how information is processed in the brain, maybe even a junk section that the limited thinker could empty through a programmable sequence of blinks and grunts. It would be great to see something emptying from the brain’s disposal portal, to see a stream of junk info flowing out of a head into a sewer (the electrical discharge associated with emptying the junk bin perhaps could be amplified with some small —I’m thinking nano—device implanted somewhere in the nervous system, allowing the discharge to be simulated visually and/or sonically—maybe technology developed from the work that has resulted in the vOIce project Seeing with Sound in which the totally blind can see: http://  www.seeingwithsound.com/).

this beginning further, speaks fork,2 the upper central incisor teeth almost bite the f of the word into the lower lip, and air is forced through the opening.

2fork: a language system that references multiple simultaneous operations; for instance: to think one way and behave in a different manner, to take a position inconsistent with established cues, clues, promises, trends, expectation; to deliberately establish cues, clues promises, trends so as fork away from them; the love of deception; to stick that which is expecting something based on established cues with a fork; a pursuit- evading maneuver; to go one way then fork often abruptly in an unanticipated direction, foiling the pursuit; to be able to split, to be inhabited by forking personalities, each one of them capable of speaking fork.

As for native speaker—some clarification is needed here too, I suppose, for those of us (I mean me and others) with a sensitivity to the use of native:3

a term which isn’t exactly double-edged, as native3 has more than two edges, so is crystalline in structure, each edge further edged as magnification, beyond this text focus, can reveal; but I do mean specifically two edges, and the doubling of edge-intensity, so sharper effects17 are achieved— even though positioning on the edge might be problematic, the apparently increased opportunity to fall off that edge, even if edge is a nod to the progressive—and such a fall is particularly problematic since no drop-off range has been indicated, so it would be a fall off the edge into nothing, and this is not the place, no matter how intense—or edged—the interest becomes to fall into a discussion of the physics and philosophical implications of a fall into something defined as nothing, nothing indicating some form of negative space even though landing in negative space is exactly where the use of native also arrives, negative as in derogatory, negative as in less than zero, outside of the range of what can be detected by the unassisted senses (including assistance with anti-discrimination legislation).8

Those sensitive (I mean me and others) might perceive (the perception encasing what is perceived in a reality, perception treating the object of perception as fact in the manner of its actual [in the fact of the manner of its] imprinting into neural networks where imprint sorting along a reality gradient does not occur) misuse in the usage being risked here;

a native speaker then, someone speaking a language as a first language of that speaker in a location where that language is commonly spoken, the language of the country of the person’s birth, even if the language of this country is not the native language of that country, meaning not the first or original language of that country, but an imported language, as in a non-indigenous species that thrives (possibly via chokehold) in new surroundings whose threats successful against other species, perhaps other native species, are no threats to the transplant, so to speak English in North America is not to speak the language native to North America. The native languages, to use another out-of- fashion, out-of-taste, pretty much out-of-any-redeeming-value value of native, not even a redeeming mirage; the native languages of North America would be the languages of the native populations or savages, the uncivilized, designations easier to make if the tongue is forked, split,9 able to speak from both sides of the mouth simultaneously,

9the forked or split tongue suggests the possibility of torture technique to carry out the splitting, the work of single or double-edged splitters, such as the magic used to split Anderson’s Little Mermaid’s fish tail, reverberations and echoes of the split experienced each time she walks, splitting again the consequences of her decision into knives and forks, utensils that are means to access something, their purpose being to assist with access, as in extending access to higher social classes through use of the right fork with each course of the meal.

to state and contradict simultaneously, to juxtapose, to increase the likelihood of consistent indication of the presence of alternative, to more authentically represent the existence of multiplicity of meaning, to simulate justice through pointing to more than one way, to be pro-choice of expression, to be indecisive, unable or unwilling to commit to a single path, to extend the tongue’s pickup ability through adding functionality similar to chopsticks, the forked tongue is also

able to wrap its two serpent-prongs or tines around a single chopstick or similar stem so as to form a mouth-borne caduceus, a figure associated with healing; a forked tongue may also become a plaited tongue, a fashion statement in word and appearance.

To fork is to have more than one way to go, to split, to increase options, each one of which may be referred to as a prong or tine. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to create a system of bifurcations, possibly to choose a particular avenue of tine for some period of time. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to access something and make what is accessed useable by decreasing distance from what is accessed and the user of the fork. To fork is to lift. To fork is to dig into and possibly separate or filter with the branches or prongs. There is definitely the likelihood of loss, through the branches or prongs, of some portion of what is being accessed, what is being forked up. To fork is to support with the fork. To fork is to be at the location or to the location where something splits into more parts. To split is to divide into more parts; the earthquake forks the house, the bridge, the road. The coroner forks the cadaver in an autopsy. The broken bone is a forked bone. A yodel is a forking note. A tree is a bifurcating system of branches. A root system is a bifurcating system of branches. The bifurcated mandrake. A bifurcating system is a forking system. Each evolutionary branch and sub-branch is an evolutionary fork or sub-fork. What a fork manages to lift is a forkful even if the fork is not at maximum lift capacity. The arm and hand system is a forking system. The digits or fingers of the hand are bifurcations or tines, usually articulated tines; a bird’s foot, the articulated robotic hand of The Terminator;10 the articulated robotic claw in those grab-a-toy mechanical gyp-boxes such as was in the lobby of my local Chi-chi’s before closure and is still in the lobby of my local branch (fork) of the Quality 16 cinema chain (forked system) where Limited Fork Poetics11 was born. Tyne12 Daly is       being inducted right now into a branch of the fork hall of fame. The twin (or two-pronged) towers

of the World Trade Center system had a system of exterior forks as part of the structural and aesthetic integrity of the WTC.13

10 A film in three, to date, parts or tines (forks) featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger in a branch (or fork) of his career as the title character, from a fork of future that is also a fork of past, who attempts create an alternative tine of future by using a present moment (the now in which the movie takes place) as a bifurcation point

12Tyne Daly played “Mary Beth Lacey,” a detective on the television crime drama “Cagney and Lacey”; her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is marked by five bifurcation points (locations to which forking has arrived and/or locations from which forking can proceed). Tyne is the name of a river system in England. A tributary or branch of a river may be considered a tine of the river; such a river is forked. A fork in a road is a bifurcation point, a location where a road or segment of a road splits into at least one additional segment. Tyne is considered a variation, or branch, of Tine which is considered a branch or bifurcation of Martina and Tina.

Tine is the name of a Norwegian dairy producer also Norway’s biggest food company (at the time of this writing), a name that resonates (a bifurcating gesture or movement; the rippling water forks; branches of a forking system need not be straight and need not remain straight if they are or become straight for some length of time) in Norway as reference to a bentwood box used in the 17th century and later for carrying and storing food, primarily butter and cheese.14, 15

The eating utensil fork can be unforgiving, can bully the

steak, the chicken, the prime rib; the eating utensil fork can hold the meat in place, prevent it from sliding on the smooth surface of a plate so that big meat can be cut done to pieces of a size easy to handle and swallow; the larger incarnation is a carving fork that holds in place bigger meat that will be cut, dissected into individual servings; scissors17 are on an evolutionary branch of the fork family.

This consideration of fork has been forking in order to consider fork; this commentary has forked as literary device; when not a verb, when not involved in activity (see flux), when a noun, a fork is commonly a device or tool. The tines of a fork system need not be in direct

contact with the handle or concept but can be; the branches of the fork may be linked to it remotely or through metaphor. There is no maximum number of tines that a fork may have. A fork may have both direct and indirect tines attached to it. Tines need not be linear. Each tine may support multiple bifurcation points. A maze or labyrinth is a forking system. The space between tines may be wide or narrow. Whether wide or narrow, the fork may lose something or some part of something to the spaces between. When the space between tines is sufficiently small, it may not be possible to perceive the presence of any space between the tines without the aid of instruments calibrated to measure on the scale of gap. When the space between tines is imperceptible on a scale of human aided or unaided perception, the fork may be considered as and may function practically as a shovel. A shovel plays less a role in flux than does fork. A snow shovel is usually a device to lift snow. A snow fork is a device or instrument that measures properties of snow.18A snow fork could also be a fork made of snow or a fork in which some of the tines are snow-covered for some period of time.

18 See a snow fork here: Toikka oy

and read about how the snow fork functions.19 19 Footnotes are tines and sub-tines

Many dead-ends are also tines.

A conjoined twin is a forked twin.

HD DVD’s and Blu-Ray discs are tines, one of which may remain open and likely to produce more tines, one of which may become a dead end.

A circular closed tine may also be hoop, ring, loop, feedback loop; a system of at least two closed tine loops can also be used to indicate infinity or the bones of a bow tie. Apple Computer’s address: One Infinite Loop is a fork of grab, the tines so close together they seem one, a fist, a forkful that is a handful, a hand closed around what a fork has grasped and not letting go; a palm reader reads forks, a palm reader navigates forks, a palm tree is a binary fork system, as are most trees: bifurcating roots20 and bifurcating branches,21 the apple, fig, coconut; fruit as bulbous tines, grapes as bulbous tines in clusters, wine as bulbous tines liquefied; the nervous system is a forking system as is My Galactic Octopus,22 as is the nervous system of an octopus, as is an octopus.

20 A sewer system forks.

21 A ventilation system forks.

limited

…for it is known that there are boundaries whether or not the exact nature of a boundary is known at any given moment or can be known at some specified moment; indeed, the abilit y t o s pe c if y a mome nt demonstrates a means of isolating a moment, of focusing on a moment, to discard what is not part of a specified moment, to exclude that which is not part of the moment being considered, to be able to exert parameters of confinement, to filter, to distill, to deal with specified parts, to develop and apply rules of focus, rules of concentration, parameters of inclusion, to be unable to exceed something, to be at capacity, not possible to go further, the inadequacy of knowledge, just short of cure, finite cap to any number of infinities within the borders, the point beyond which there is nothing, the privilege of being on the other side of nothing, exclusive, only for those with certain specifications, qualifica tions, restricted, location of power, wealth, pulls out all the stops, makes few stops along the trip, the laws that limit, that curb power, owners of a company legally responsible for no more than the capital invested, cannot be exceeded, the pinnacle, the best, for once and for all, the best film (etc.) to remain the best each year until a new film stretches the limit, raises the bar, otherwise, Shakespeare wins Nobel prize for literature year after year after year, the line between possible and i m p o s s i b l e , p e r m i s s i b l e a n d prohibited, a limit can be in flux, new data can push, revise, reassign limits, the limit of one circumstance is not necessarily the limit of any other circumstance, a limit may be shared, may be disputed, a speed limit can be

exceeded, often with consequences, to exceed the limit of the speed of light is to have to rethink ideas that have exceeded the appropriate limits or brakes easily placed on ideas, becoming fundamental concepts instead, the foundation of other truths of existence, to be limited: to be without much talent or promise, consigned to be pretty much the way it is now, in need of air, water, nutrients, limited to need something outside of self.

mezzy

first off: variation of mezze: a Mediterranean appetizer because there is always hunger,

some of which is for the mezzy of existence, for essence, for the exceeding of apparent limits, for a way to stretch, for exquisite, for elegant, for any purpose, the spiritual mezzy, the mezzy art as a means of elevation, the physical mezzy, visible architecture, structures, houses of mezzy evidence, a restaurant in Oakland, the mezze of poetry: the endless feast for the insatiable appetite for meaning, luminous resonance, toward zenith, little bits of tasty treats to please the palate, syllables, stanzas, the delight of poam, planned or impromptu, get some mezzy here: The Mezzy Factor, here: The Mezzy           Factor continues, and here: The Inevitable Mezzy of Poetry; the mezzy of ability to locate and taste the delicious, to have no significant limit to how much mezzy can be tolerated, to feast today, to feast now and be full, extended, ascending, zenith-bound only to have the sun set, to experience digestion, the extraction of nutrients, shrinkage of the consumed, the bounded, the limited via consumption mezzy, to have room for more mezzy, to make room for more mezzy, to need to consume more, to be unable to exhaust the mezzy supply, to be limited to seeking, desiring mezzy, popular mezze dishes include: babaghanoush, tabbouleh, rocket salad (salatat jarjir), kibbeh, shanklish, sausages that are treasure chests opened with bites, mezzy menus that are on tables of content, search results such as the menu of mezzy results when Tokyo Butter opens, the Song there, the mezzy that sings, Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonders, Everything that Rises, Andrew Zimmern’s bizarre foods, the taste of everything, when mezzy morsels rot, when mezzy morsels decompose, the result is more mezzy, maggot pilgrims come to mezzy the mezzy, it cannot get putrid enough to completely wreck the mezzy, oh instead it can putridly enhance, there is the mezzy of putrefaction, the toxic is an edible idea, the mezzy of idea, taste of whole Google earth, whole shebang food, what is possible to be forked, a mezzy is a forkful, the engine, the power of the universe, the fuel and the fuel burner is a mezzy cooker, whatever exists is a         mezzy cook, to catch snowflakes on the tongue, to run through hordes of fireflies and locusts with the mouth open is to be mezzy ready, mezzy receptive, and a little bit of a beautiful fool.

scale

It’s about time to fork this into perspectives, about time to weigh and determine what’s present, what’s active according to perspectives accessible without devices and with devices designed to extend (within the limits of their making) what the senses can access, it’s time to scale this, remove those lime deposits, the tartar on teeth, the tiles on butterflies, moths, fish, preparing them for something else, to be of more use on a human, a specific cultural perspective, let’s supply context, a way to order, a musical sequence, order of magnitude, duration, to interpret, a way to check the reasonableness, a table of feasibility, the various tracts and tracks of time, relativity of perspective, dry skin, a basic feather, to scale: to remove scales, to cross scale quickly, to move by powers of ten, to use metaphor as a tool to cross scale, seeking symmetry, seeking archetypal patterns on multiple scales, the repetition of form in the universe, the redundancy of basic forms with which to build endless variety, distribution, graphs, maps, diagrams, the Mandelbrot set, scale models, in proportion, chains, justice, measure, relative size, enlarge, shrink, fractals, the repetition of propagation, scale, rate of change, saturation, the temperature scale, increments of measure, processing units, local events on a local scale, magnification reveals scale toward the smaller, toward the larger, telescope, microscope, tele-scale, micro-scale, impact, determination of significance, insignificance and the relative meaning, impact of these determinations on various and across scales, a tool for setting balance, tone, scale factor for the expansion of the universe, for the collapse, dimensions, the boundaries of accountability, obesity monitor, a scale factor multiplies, the perception of wow intensified, multiplied as Grant Williams as The Incredible Shrinking Man shrank away, dissipated, the rate: scale of his dissipation correlated to the rate: scale of expansion of his awareness of the scale of this, his place value, the scale of placement of exponents, superscripts, approximations, greater than, less than enclosures, how something is seen, how something can be seen, alternative representation of the same, of similar information, packaging, integrity manager, what is being considered, what is available, scale of the undertaking, of the menu, ratio, Fujita scale of tornadic activity, Beaufort scale of wind activity (includes reference to horse heads which scale for me a silhouette that embraces fiddles, and the related, on that scale, treble clef of seahorse), the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity, to be scales, to be evaluated, rated, assigned a relative position, family of man (includes these forks: women, children, ~97% of chimpanzee DNA).

simultaneity

Stop right here

Simultaneity should not be last

If simultaneity exists, it is not last

So while a linear scale managed progress through the layout of these definitions, in truth, fork, flux, limited, mezzy, scale, simultaneity existed concurrently

on different scales, at different rates of changes, different levels of perceptibility, different and multiple locations; all have been present in some form(s) in some location(s).

The pattern of distribution of these elements is not necessarily linear, but any flux portion forked for examination may be perceived or momentarily limited to parameters of investigation in which a linear assessment makes sense and on the scale of circumstances being considered, linear behavior manifests, holds true for calculations and observations while at the same time, in a larger consideration, on a different scale, assessments may need adjusting, for what works, what makes sense, what has truth and mezzy on a particular scale may fail, that failure offering a mezzy of failure, as scale shifts, what makes sense shifts, what has truth shifts, mezzy shifts; the mezzy constant is the existence of, the persistence of a form of mezzy.

Is it that the forms of what exists on each scale on which something exists are necessarily changing? No.

Just watching it can change its behavior.

It probably has behavior without being watched.

But one possibility of simultaneity is that of consensus, that of conspiring to maintain the simultaneous existence itself; the collective exertion of belief in the shared existence projects that existence, that limit of what is; the mezzy of collaboration, for everything existing to manifest some element, some evidence (presently detectable by others or not, whose development of tools to detect presences is usually constrained by the ways in which those developers have been shaped by perceiving to seek [perceptible] evidence) of presence on some scale for some period of time, measured according to some perspective, on some scale so that there is no universal time for the simultaneous manifestation of presence.

Simultaneity then suggests occurrence during a shared unit of time, the length or duration, the experience of the shared unit differing according to the perspective of the constituents sharing the unit of time; it isn’t even the same time on earth, separation of hours, of degree, scale of light, darkness; for some hours (relative to a computation of hour in this solar system on this planet) of a day (relative to a computation of day in this solar system on this planet in this galaxy in this universe) it isn’t even the same day on earth, all inhabitants of earth do not use the same calendar; from each scale, from each perspective, there is a different implication of simultaneity.

I do like the starburst model of simultaneous acceleration of the known universe, the universe in which there is some trusted evidence of occupancy, other universes, which may exist simultaneously, at this moment (scale of time) existing speculatively, existing in hopes, wishes, imagination so is real there, in the realm of limits of mind, existing if not

exactly parallel, then with the external mostly-three-dimensional (it seems) universe; I do like the shape of that more- or-less uniform expansion, the idea of growth in all directions, with little detectable discrimination, as eager a move toward heavens as toward hells; I do like the distribution of growth occurring as air imparts growth to a balloon, and while there may not be precisely equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, if the balloon model of universe is accurate; while there may not be equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, I envision a mezzy of curved, of eccentric fork tines; I envision a luminous chrysanthemum of petals and flowers extending in arcs and curves, bends, luminous warps and displacements, forever fading, forever fizzling, dropping seeds,     manufacturing more cool, way cool universes, antiverses.One Word book

BOOK ABOUT & TO MY FATHER

Although it is much too premature to announce that my 14th book might become reality. a book about an exceptional man that I was lucky enough to call my father, 

a former student now an editor, Jason Kirk told me how he liked the part he has read, and he was kind enough to make room for me today, a visit I surely needed in a time of enormous upheaval in my life.  It was not my mother who understood me and tried to make sure that I existed in a world where any opportunity could be mine as long as it was in human possibility.  

 

I will not say more as I would not like to spoil the book.  

 

It was my father.  100% Daddy’s girl right here although I am 63 years old.

Here’s Jason Kirk and I, 

 

If there is any kind of justice in this world, then the book about my father will be book #14 for me.  Unfortunately, my father died before the most important things happened, the birth of my own genetic son, the only person other  than myself who has the gift of his DNA. 

 

I wrote this book to show my father the greatest happinesses in my life, the highest highs, all of which he missed.  I wanted my father, my son also, to know what it is like for me to really be in love.  I wanted to introduce my father to the real man behind Thomas Robert Higginson, but I guess Thomas Robert  is not ready for that level of TRUTH,, so instead I introduce him to a proxy  Thomas Robert Higginson (proxy images above), but in my heart, and I hope that in Thomas Robert’s heart also, he is aware, and likes that it is him.

I myself am so thankful and grateful that Jason Kirk,  He knows a great deal about Limited Fork.

 

He was there when I was learning  that theory myself.  I will be learning it for the rest of my life.  It is that important and transformative.

 

Jason Kirk (with fork)

so far Jason likes the book! –and that means everything tonight. The book is a way that more people can get to know this man. And I wanted to introduce the persons most important to me to him.  The gist of my ambition.

 

Getting closer to Fruition!
