Out Our Way:

This midsummer month was a busy one, and our Planning Workstation got a good workout. That's what we call our hammock stationed under the oak tree next to the Round Garden. We added an undine to the bird bath that graces the center of the Round Garden. That's a 16" high water sprite, who is depicted in bronze leaning forward to drink from a tiny leaf. Our glorious July weather has returned after two years of sunny drought and we are visited by daily afternoon cooling showers and shade. Having Del working from home has meant scheduling our time in the Planning Workstation. One of the benefits to me has been more time for reading and writing, as the full plate of reviews for this month will attest. Enjoy!

Our grandson Sam visited us from the East coast. He batted 868 in his second Little League season. Del wanted to know if that was good. She knows now that only one major leaguer ever averaged over 400 for a year. Sam and his cousin Gabe liked to watch me shoot the bad guys on Quake III acting as health monitors and bad guy spotters for me.

I received this wonderful sentiment about friendship from Yvan Béguin in Geneva, Switzerland which I would like to share with you. Yvan is a native speaker of French, but his English is excellent, if strikingly novel, such as in this case, "Your friendship is good to feel in my heart." Yvan translated Doyle Henderson's into French and is currently working on Yvan will be coming to the Inaugural World-Wide Doyletics Conference in New Orleans in October. Any of my good readers who are also familiar with doyletics and would like to get together for a couple of days to share their experiences and learn more may contact me to register for the conference.

I had one of my Steiner reviews published in Argentina's Southern Cross Review and a print magazine in Australia is considering publication of an introductory article about doyletics that I wrote for them.

After the grandsons left Del and I drove to the Palace 20 Cineplex to see A. I. - pretty fascinating movie- not at all what either of us expected it to be. Could become a classic like 2001 has. Not much Artificial Intelligence stuff in the movie - it's more about reincarnation and the influence of the Moon. Huge full moon keeps re-appearing during the movie. At first I thought it was a sly Dreamworks promo bit, but the meaning seems deeper. When the kid freezes underwater for 2,000 years, that smacks very much of reincarnation. This time he will evolve for sure, he will fulfill the promise he made himself in the previous lifetime. A monochromatic world devoid of human expressions fits very well with anthroposophic predictions for that time period. See my review of Necessity and Freedom when it is done in a few days.

Finished my review of my friend Kevin Dann's fine book, Bright Colors, Falsely Seen, midnight before the 4th of July. Del and I planned a quiet day at home until the smell of BBQ from nearby celebrations began to seep through the windows, we headed for downtown and some BBQ ourselves from Houston's on St. Charles Avenue. After lunch we rode the streetcar to the French Quarter and walked to Café Du Monde for some café au lait and beignets (not coffee ole as we saw in Alabama coffee shop). We bumped into Annette and George Dorko who were also New Orleanians celebrating the 4th in the Quarter. They were headed to a hotel to watch the evening's fireworks. We headed home to watch close up in the screening room.

The next week we spent at our condo in Orange Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Our daughter Maureen and her colleague Janet, a French teacher from Bonnabel High School, joined us in an adjacent condo for the week. We enjoyed the beach, the waves, the sun, and the chance to spend a week with our grandkids, Chris and Gabe and our new friend Janet and her two kids, Marianne and Alex. We took them all to Flounder's Restaurant in Pensacola Beach, a wonderful open-air feeling with a sandy beach for the kids to play on, live music, and salt breezes. Afterward we were entertained by a small aeroplane flying low overhead and shooting fireworks from its wings: sparklers and Roman candles.

The next week was my birthday week and I spent most of it working at the keyboard. Got re-started on my backlog of reviews for A Reader's Treasury, as this month's list of ART reviews will attest. For my birthday I arranged a massage for myself and dinner at my nephew Jeff's restaurant about a half-mile down Belle Chasse Highway. Dad joined me and Del, and Jeff's mom, my sister Janet and her friend Gayle also. Maureen came at the last minute to round out the birthday table. Thirty-two years ago man first landed on the Moon on my birthday, and those July 20th blank spaces in the calendars of my youth will be filled in with a famous happening from now on.

One more trip before the month was out took us to Alexandria, Louisiana to our daughter Kim and her husband Wes Gralapp's home. We met the new puppy, a chocolate Lab named Snickers. How cute, I thought, like the chocolate candy bar of the same name. Then I discovered an egregious error - the puppy was a she! Everybody knows that Snickers has nuts! Nuts or not, Snickers will be an excellent retriever for those cold days in the duck blind when walking in knee deep water and muck to retrieve ducks is not nearly as much fun as shooting more ducks. We spent the second night at Loyd Hall, a lovely Bed & Breakfast in the rural Central Louisiana town of Cheneyville. If you could bottle and sell quiet, this place would be a gold mine.

Till next month, may all of you, my good Readers, have a great August!

CAJUN STORY of the MONTH: (This story was sent to me as a Minnesota fisherman in a Norwegian dialect by Warren Liberty. Needless to say, I took some liberty with Warren's version. Thanks, Warren!)

Boudreaux was out in his pirogue in Bayou Des Allemands one day when the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Agent stopped to inspect his boat. He looked into the large bucket in the front of the pirogue and saw that it was full of undersize catfish. He knew that he was going to have to confiscate the fish as evidence and give Boudreaux a ticket.
"Been catfishing, Boudreaux?"
"Mais, non! Dese are my pet catfish. Everyday I take dem to the lake and let dem swim around a while. When dey have dere fun, I whistle for dem and dey swim back, jump in dere bucket, and I take dem home to dere pen."
"You can't be serious."
"Mais, yah. Look, dere's de lake, let's go over dere and I'll show you."
So the Agent followed Boudreaux as he paddled his pirogue over to the edge of Lake Des Allemands. Boudreaux dumped the catfish into the water and said, "Au revoir, mon petites, have a good swim till I call you back."

The fish swam out into the lake and the Agent and Boudreaux lit up a couple of Picayune cigarettes. Finally, the Agent said, "Shouldn't you be calling dem fish back now?"
"What fish?"
"Your PET catfish, that's what fish!" the Agent snapped back.
"Mais, yeah, I forgot me," Boudreaux said. He tipped the bucket near the water and began whistling and whistling, but no catfish came near the bucket.
The Agent was getting angry and said, "Boudreaux, how you explain dat? Your PET catfish ain't coming back at all, dem!"
Boudreaux scratched his head a bit and said, "Mais, I don't know why dey ain't coming back . . . Bon Dieu! You know sumpin? I jes' remember me, dose was dem hardhead catfish -- dey don't listen to nobody!"

5. Website Additions for August

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Our French connection, Yvan, has begun working on a French translation of the website. No date when this project may be finished, but one can see from the results of his previous translation projects that it will happen. A note to that effect has been added to the top of the home page.

This month I finally put the finishing touches on a project that had been sitting in limbo for some time. I had unearthed a series of reviews that were the first ones that I did back in 1987. Short but interesting reviews by a variety of authors including Paul Bohannen, Pat Conroy, Ken Carey, Whitely Strieber, Eudora Welty, Jane Austen, Mircea Eliade, Roy Blount, Stephen Lankton, James Carse, Natsume Soseki, Hazrat Inayat Khan, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Brian Swimme, Tom T. Hall, Mary Stewart and James Body White. Read my reviews of these authors' works at:

ANNOUNCEMENT: Inaugural World-Wide Doyletics Conference, Oct 5-9, in New Orleans

~~^~ All Peace Begins with Inner Peace ~^~~

Exciting news for those of you who have wanting to meet Doyle Henderson, the innovator whose life's work has led to the science of doyletics: he will be in New Orleans, Louisiana for the Inaugural World-Wide Doyletics Conference this Fall, Oct. 5 - 9. To register for the conference or get more details, click at right to send pre-filled email: . As of this date we have about 20 registrants from four countries.

I awoke the other morning with these words resonating in me, "All peace begins with inner peace." It occurred to me later that world peace can only be built one individual at a time. And individual peace must begin with inner peace. And inner peace can be created by removing troubling doyles, one at a time, during a speed trace. When that message gets out to the world, as I like to say, "Fear, Anger, and Anxiety will be endangered species." And World Peace will become an attainable goal, one person at a time.

"All Peace Begins with Inner Peace." will be the theme for the Inaugural World-Wide Doyletics Conference in New Orleans this fall.

7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for August:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: Bright Colors, Falsely Seen by Kevin Dann

There is much in this book to be learned about the human being and how the senses and memory are organized. In many ways it is a reference book to understanding the origin of many important concepts in the history of humanity: how the concept ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny was first formulated, how eidetic imagery and synaesthesia are usually found together, how Jules Millet first coined the word synaesthesia, and many other unique advances in understanding human consciousness are collected in one convenient book.

[page 164] If these syncretic forms of perception [synaesthesia and eideticism] do indeed signal something about the evolution of human consciousness, we have not as yet fathomed what that is.

Perhaps not, but with Kevin Dann's book, we can begin to get our arms around the problem in a more comprehensive way than ever before.

Read the Review at:

2.) ARJ2: The Lost Tribe by Edward Marriott

Its subtitle, "A Harrowing Passage into New Guinea's Heart of Darkness," tells us succinctly what the book is about. A journalist white man tracks down a lost tribe newly appearing out of the mountainous jungles of deepest New Guinea.

Herein is the tale of his treacherous trek and his encounter with that rarest of humans: a small tribe of 79 people isolated from civilization since the beginning of time. He will get a book from this encounter. What will they get?

3.) ARJ2: Chance, Providence, and Necessity by Rudolf Steiner

How does one have freedom in a world in which karma exists?

Doesn't the necessity of one's karma eliminate the possibility of chance? And if so where does "the kindly care of God," as my Collins dictionary defines providence, fit into the scheme of things?

Steiner answers all these questions and more in the short 148 pages of these eight lectures.

4.) ART: Magic in Action by Richard Bandler

Humor and quickness — two words that describe Bandler. He does the therapy in seconds, but indulges himself for many minutes so that he can charge for the session, so that he can charge up the therapists, can charge them up to get them moving out of their pearl-lined shells into other and more fun-filled worlds.

Here's another example of his humor and quickness:

[page 162] (Laughter) Well that takes care of that. Another sixty seconds of therapy. If you know what you're doing, therapy doesn't take that long.

5.) ART: Using Your Brain — for a CHANGE by Richard Bandler

Richard Bandler was the quintessential smart ass, as the title textually and graphically illustrates, but he always manages to fill his seminars and keep people riveted to their seats, as much as one can be riveted while one is uproariously laughing from one moment to the next.

Steve and Connirae Andreas have compiled a melange of his seminars, tapes and workshops into a coherent whole and managed to capture the elfin Bandler at his best.

6.) ART: Living in a Wild Garden by Roger Banks

In this book, full of brightly colored drawings of wild plants and flowers, Roger Banks takes us on a culinary tour of the weeds that surround our houses.

If you're ready to swear off insecticides and herbicides and take a walk on the wild side, then this book is for you.

Read the Review at: liwgart.htm

7.) ART: The Essays of Francis Bacon by Francis Bacon

Why read essays written back in 1600 AD? The guy obviously doesn't know how to write good English - look at the stilted phrasing and obscure grammar he uses! Well, consider this a bit o homework, dear Readers, with an emphasis on work. Like school homework, it will prepare you for the next day's activities. Here's a sample quote to scare you off completely:

[page 88] After these two noble fruits of friendship (peace in the affections, and support of the judgment), followeth the last fruit; which is like the pomegranate, full of many kernels; I mean aid and bearing a part in all actions and occasions. Here the best way to represent to the life the manifold use of friendship is to cast and see how many things there are which a man cannot do himself; and then it will appear that it was a sparing speech of the ancients, to say, that a friend is another himself; for that a friend is far more than himself. >

To Read the full review anyway, in spite of my warnings to the contrary:

Read the Review at: tefbart.htm

8.) ART: Myths, Models, and Paradigms by Ian G. Barbour

When Groucho said, "I would not join a club that would have me as a member," what did he really mean?

What does everybody mean when they talk about paradigms?

Do you feel a little left out, not knowing a paradigm from a parachute? Want to learn what a paradigm really is so you won't have to pretend to know from now on?

For answers to these and other questions you may have not thought about, read the Review at: mmapart.htm

My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.
