Casus Belli at the Casa Dei p.
Birds of a Feather p. 100
Fearless John’s Prayer to the Black Virgin
Of La Chaise-Dieu Abbey church
All these poems
and stories are dedicated to Lucretia who helped crossing the long depression
between the mountain of hostile war and the mountain of reconstruction.
some events played an enormous role in those years, The University of Perpignan
in their Mende unit; the Festival of La Chaise-Dieu and sacred music, music,
and music again; Michel Thénot of Central Parc with whom I visited
dozens of Romanesque churches running after Black Virgins; in Sri Lanka Sujeewa
and Sudarshani and the confrontation with elephants; and then Paris with
several life-ghosts who made me recapture life: many were named Arthur but some
stand out, Ivan, Paula and Animata. Special mention to Christian Gauchet,
Ghalib Hakkak and Père Emmanuel Gobilliard.
They are too
numerous to be named all. They are legions and that’s how we survive on this
earth, satiated with love, friendship and mental and spiritual experience.
