Hi Greg,

I think this may interest you:


For me at least, it touchs on very many of your levels and topics, including the one about ways a person may elide where there's something they aren't ready to look at squarely. At the same time, there's something about it having to do with essential healing activities, which I think is very interesting too.

The rest of the long list of subjects, I am sure you will see.

I also finally reached my equilibrium with Mariposa, and I will write a nice review on Amazon as soon as I can get past what I am working on at the moment.

Summary: well, you really are an artist ;). Others may also appreciate it.

One thing I would mention is that it's probably a good idea that Mariposa is off Kindle's list apparently for the moment. It took me picking up the print version in the library to realize what had happened there, as they has made a serious formatting mistake. This broke up your train-of-points-of-view style, whereever you used it, into bullets separated by great washes of space, and at least for me, it really altered the senses of continuity.

Hopefully they will get this fixed and put the book back up there -- and update the copies on our downloads. Hmmm ;).

Greg, thanks.

(Roald a bit longer, anyway)

Wonderful, Greg.

I presume you discovered the actual Derman essay itself, after the long introductory piece by Brockman.

Maybe he did that because he thinks we won't otherwise follow Derman through his maze, but as you express, I found it just a fascinating gem.

I realized I may have something else quite different that could be interesting to you as well, from another figure - let me see about that.

Best in all,
