    Ahhh. Now that sure makes sense, Cherry, doesn’t it! I love all the layers in the accompanying image, too.

    That is such an extensive view, Cherie – it goes on and on and leads you through different landscapes.

    Many of the men of old are well worth following, moreso than those of today.

  7. Did Bashou inspired U2 to write I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For?
    I used to love this song a lot!

  8. Such as… the transmutation of the elements. Oh, we found out how to do that! But not in the way, or unfortunately in the quantities, that the Alchemists sought. But in the futile quest of the Alchemists they discovered chemistry. We may not find what we seek, but we may find something better, if we can recognize that.
