Out Our Way:

We know from talking to many of you that this is your "don't miss" place in the Digest, so we endeavor to make it fun and informative for you every month.

First, we added a webpage of memories of Buster and Annette Matherne, an oral history project that I worked on with my mom and dad. You can read it all, see the photos, and enjoy the poem, “Through the Sawmill Town of Donner” at:

Second, a little fun from our Tidbits WebPage.
Check out these NEW! additions.

"Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?"
Age-Old Question finally answered in 2003.

"Flash Mind Reader"
You won't believe this after you've seen it. Unerring Accuracy!

"Cajun Ten Commandments" God's Top Ten Don't Do Dat List!

"Blond Bemmer" How can you tell? Read the license plate.

"Cat Art" No clowning around either.

Third, be sure to read this new review on-line and enjoy Ted Key’s delightful and insightful cartoons:

Fourth, I added photos to Digest #33's Recipe for Crawfish Eggplant Dressing. These photos should help first timers in figuring how the cooking should look at each step of the process. The recipe can be found at: Future recipes will contain photos of the final product, intermediate steps, and ingredients. To save download time for non-cooks, only the final product will be shown on the on-line Digest, but links will be provided for those who wish to see the steps and ingredients photos.

The month began with the christening of Taylor Ann Rachal. For those who missed the photo, click here. A couple of days later found us on the Canal St. ferry heading for downtown New Orleans and another Mardi Gras. One sad note: we walked through the Le Meridien Hotel, gone for only two weeks, and now with a new name — it was like walking through a ghost town. The building was still there open for business, but it’s spirit was gone. The bright shining faces of the bellhops who greeted us each week when we ate at the Midi - South of France restaurant were gone, no one was behind the bar in Lobby, and the huge flower arrangement in the center of the alcove was absent — so sad. We left quickly. It was a stark reminder that it’s the people who make a great hotel, not the walls. Au Revoir, Le Meridien!

It was a chilly, misty day, due to the Pineapple Express as the weatherman called it, a cold subtropical jetstream from Hawaii, and the only good thing to say about it was that it made for terrific photographs. It was like being a Hollywood director and having a fog machine running over the entire city — just enough to make the foreground colors stand out. I took photographs of nearly every Rex float — one for each of the 17 states that comprised the original Louisiana Territory exactly 200 years ago. One can only imagine that if Louisiana had selfishly kept all its territory as one state, as California and Texas have done, this country would be short about 30 Senators in the Congress. Here’s a couple of Rex floats that stood out.

We met our friends Ruth and Ted at the Monteleone Hotel for lunch. Ted took this photo of me next to my grandfather clock in the lobby where they take care of it for me. We walked through the Quarter and headed over to Café du Monde for café au lait and beignets, then caught the Rex parade at the end of Canal Street where we caught a huge cache of beads and doubloons. Another wonderful Mardi Gras before the solemn forty days of Lent begin.

A healing dream happened to me just before I awoke on Friday, March 14. Just a snippet, but I saw a group of tangled snakes in the room I was in and I waved my hand lightly, telling them in effect to disperse or go somewhere and do something useful and to my amazement, they began to coil around each other two by two into caduceus-forms.

A few minutes later I was reading this remarkable story which might be titled, “Superman Wakes up and Smells the Coffee”. I had read earlier a scientific medical report, very dry, in which doctors described that through the use of electrical stimulation, Christopher Reeves, whose diaphragm has been dormant for 8 years, was able to breathe without a respirator for as much as two hours at a time. Great, I thought, as I read it, but it never occurred to me that mean he would be able to smell for the first time in 8 years! With the respirator tube removed from his throat [“It’s not my favorite tie,” Chris says], he was breathing through his nose and thus able to smell again.

In the Times-Picayune this morning, Chris said, “I actually woke up and smelled the coffee.” Another poignant moment came when he asked the staff to turn off the ventilator for a few minutes while he was breathing unassisted so he could enjoy the silence. He was able to hear the sound of his own breathing. “That meant a tremendous amount,” he said, emotion slowing his voice.

This man’s life story, when told in coming centuries will seem incredible, and we living are fortunate to be experiencing it as it happens. He is indeed playing the part of a lifetime; he is indeed a real Superman. God Bless you, Christopher Reeves.

Later in the month the A&P had fresh okra in the produce section so I decided to make a large seafood gumbo complete with shrimp, crabs, oysters, and crawfish. As I made it, I wrote down the recipe for the first time and took a few photos. These appear in the Recipe of the Month Section 5 below.

On Friday, March 14, about 8 am our 17th grandchild was born in Baton Rouge. Kyle Alexander Hatchett was 9 lbs 6 oz and 21.5 inches long. Mom (Kristen) and baby are fine, Dad (John) is quickly recovering. Congratulations, John and Kristen!

About March 19th the War to Liberate Iraq began and the five screens in the Timberlane Screening Room were on most of the day so that we could check the status of activities. I suggest that we daily and heartily say this prayer each day during this war for those who are imperiled on the battlefield or who have already lost their lives in the conflict [from Rudolf Steiner]:

Out of courage shown in battle,
Out of the blood shed in war,
Out of the grief of those who are left,
Out of the people's deeds of sacrifice
Spirit fruits will come to grow
If souls with knowledge of the spirit
Turn their mind to spirit realms.

Movies we watched this past month:

Notes about our movies: Many of the movies we watch are foreign movies with subtitles. After years of watching movies in foreign languages, Arabic, French, Swedish, German, British English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and many other languages, sometimes two or three languages in the same movie, the subtitles have disappeared for us. If the movie is dubbed in English we go for the subtitles instead because we enjoy the live action and sounds of the real voices so much more than the dubbed. If you wonder where we get all these foreign movies from, the answer is simple: NetFlix. For a fixed price a month they mail us DVD movies from our on-line Queue, we watch them, pop them into a pre-paid mailer, and the postman effectively replaces all our gas-consuming and time-consuming trips to Blockbuster. To sign up for NetFlix, simply go to and start adding all your requests for movies into your personal queue. If you've seen some in these movie blurbs, simply copy the name, click open your queue, and paste the name in the Search box on NetFlix and Select Add. Buy some popcorn and you're ready to Go to the Movies, 21st Century Style. You get to see your movies as the Director created them — NOT-edited for TV, in full-screen width, your own choice of subtitles, and all of the original dialogue.
P. S. Look for HD/DVD format movies which are now available from NetFlix.
Hits (Watch as soon as you can. A Don't Miss Hit is one you might otherwise ignore.):
“Ben Hur” — I’ve seen this one many times before, but this time I had it on a side tv while I watched I, Claudius on DVD so I could easily pause at the moments I wanted to re-watch. I saw the first time when Juda ben Hur encounters Jesus. It was during his enslavement and chained trip to the galley where he is supposed to die. Forbidden by the guard to be given water, Jesus leaves his carpentry work to take him some water to revive and refresh Juda ben Hur. The Roman guard notices that his ban on water is being violated and comes over to stop Jesus, but when he looks into Jesus’s eyes, the guard’s face changes from anger to trepidation and he stops, is speechless, and he retreats. The guard’s ability to see into his own karmic destiny is unveiled in that moment by the Lord of Karma and he is troubled by what he sees is in store for him as a result of his actions in this lifetime. Juda ben Hur, on the other hand, is heartened by what he sees when he looks at Jesus, he is revived by what he sees, and stands up, taller than before, his “I” brought visibly into action again. Seeing in his own life how he will fulfil his karmic destiny brings him strength and courage once more to face whatever trials lie ahead of him. One man, Jesus, and he evokes two distinctly different reactions in two men. How is that possible unless the reaction is directly personal and therefore karmically connected.

Thanks to an insight shared with me by my friend Kristina Kaine I found that I was able to understand clearly the interactions. She said that Christ Jesus was like a movie screen upon which people saw their own karma played out. Jesus washed Juda ben Hur’s face, gave him water, and said nothing. The Roman guard who had prohibited him water came over to stop Jesus and when he got near and looked in Jesus's face, again without words being spoken, the Roman's face showed intense trepidation --- exactly as if he had just seen the light poured into his dreamless sleep of darkness and had witnessed his karma played out before him and was unable to continue in his pathetic torture of Juda ben Hur or probably anyone else thereafter. Juda ben Hur, revived by the water, but more so by his viewing his own karmic destiny played out before him, arose and stood erect, an amazing transformation that cannot be only laid at the feet of the water's effects. In his karmic destiny, his own "I" was bolstered and when the "I" is strengthened, it automatically shows itself in the posture. Hmmm, that's the reason teenagers tend to have such atrocious posture at times -- their "I" is lacking water due to their tendency to follow their peers in fads, fashions, modes of speech, and thoughts. No "I" in that activity.
“Tuvix” — a Voyager episode in which Neelix and Tuvoc get merged into one being, Tuvix, and the Captain has to decide whether to separate them again after having given up hope and named the new mixture. Tuvix makes a plead to be spared from “execution.” Powerful drama.
“Dead Poets Society” — A Robin Williams classic tale. Who can forget Carpe Diem or Captain, my Captain? The English teacher who has the class tear out the Introduction to the Poetry book so they will not be stultified in their appreciation of poetry. They retreat to a cave with a book of poetry to inhale the words of dead poets and bring girls there to swoon at the words. Heady stuff for youngsters and treasonous behavior for their headmasters who are forced into revealing their concrete hard stodginess, but not before some blood is shed and the English teacher is scapegoated.
“Insomnia” with Al Pacino and Robin Williams was an intriguing and suspenseful detective movie – in which one of the roles is that of a detective novel writer. Who would survive the battle of the wits – the detective or the writer? It was a case where if the detective solved the crime he was assigned to solve, he would convict himself of a crime. Like an ouroboros eating its own tail, if he feasted too much, he was a goner.
“Changing Lanes” another flick in which a slight lapse of morality threatens to lead to the demise of the two lead characters played by Samuel Jackson and Ben Affleck. Jackson provides us insight into the addiction that underlies alcoholism as he finds his life in the same kind of chaos without drinking as it was before. Affleck learns how to use the law for fun and profit, but wonders if even a big sailboat is worth the loss of one’s soulboat.
“Enemy of the State” with Gene Hackman – should be enough to scare the pants off anybody. Satellites tracking you overhead. Computer imagery rotating camera images. Computer tracking of movements in buildings. All this in place and they can’t find Ben Laden, makes you wonder how much of this movie was fantasy.
“Jane Eyre” Don’t know how I missed reading the story — my wife said she read it four or five times. Governess Jane is strong-willed and moral — a lugubrious combination in most Victorian stories — such women end up as long-suffering spinsters. Will Jane get together with her Mr. Rochester or go to India with the young missionary? Worth seeing to the end.
“Emma” a great movie in which the actress who played Jane Eyre in the previous movie we saw, played Harriet Smith in this movie. Jane Austen’s Emma springs to life on the screen. A young matchmaker who loves to create matches for couples, but is oblivious to the natural matches that are going on under her nose.
“Nobody’s Baby” — about a baby put up for adoption whose couriers died in an automobile accident which the baby survived. The fugitive petty criminal is a 20 something young man who was clueless about what to do with a baby, but kept her alive as he grew up fast. Gary Oldham played his comrade — one of the whackiest roles Gary ever played. And guess who played the baby’s wet nurse? Mary Steenbergen. Go figure. A very entertaining movie, full of fun and surprises all the way to the end.

Misses (Avoid At All Costs): We attempted to watch these this month, but didn't make it all the way through on most of them. Awhile back when three AAAC horrors hit us in one night, I decided to add a sub-category to "Avoid at All Costs", namely, A DVD STOMPER. These are movies so bad, you don't want anyone else to get stuck watching them, so you want to stomp on the disks. That way, if everyone else who gets burnt by the movie does the same, soon no copies of the awful movie will be extant and the world will be better off.

“Chicago”WORST picture of the year! I want my money back. I went to see this expecting to entertained and was repulsed instead. Where do I apply for a refund? To the Academy Awards Selection Committee I suppose, as this movie appearing in their selection is what led me to even consider going to see it. This was a musical, alright, but any resemblance to “Sound of Music” or “My Fair Lady” stops as soon as you listen to the words of the songs which have to do with darkness and immorality. Just a hint – the three female leads all go to death row for killing their husbands, and that’s not at the end of the movie, but at the beginning. If it’s only seating available at a multiplex, buy some popcorn, go home and watch “I Love Lucy” reruns on television. You’ll be better entertained than by watching Richard Gere trying to dance like Gene Kelley or Fred Astaire or Mike Douglas’s wife trying to imitate Liza Minnelli.

“Swordfish” was meant to be tasty, but it was overripe and stunk. Super-hacker helps save world by killing people for big bucks. Lucky for John Travolta and us they didn’t try to make a musical out of this turkey as they did to “Chicago”.
“Collector” Terrence Stamp is not a stamp collector, but a butterfly collector who decides to diversify into beautiful young ladies. Can two young people find happiness if one of them is about to pinned — to a specimen board? You really already know. Skip this one.

Your call on these — your taste in movies may differ, but I liked them:

“Rebecca” – Lawrence Olivier and Joan Fontaine in this gothic potboiler. Another classic B&W tale set in merry Ole England in which, like in Jane Eyre, the mad woman sets the huge mansion on fire in the end. But, with this difference, it’s a Hitchcock film and it’s full of eerie music, Citizen Kanesque cinematography, and amazing plot twists. The burning of Mandalay at the end is a blessing for everyone concerned as it ensures finally the end of Rebecca.
“The Way We Live Now” — (2000) From sleeve blurb on the DVD: “Power, passion and corruption drive this adaptation the novel that critics consider Anthony Trollop’s best. Although set in the railway boom of the 1970s, this is the remarkably contemporary story of ordinary men and women blinded by the promise of unprecedented financial rewards and a world where fame has become more important than merit.

Last I checked, except perhaps for blowing up an unused railway bridge, there was no “railway boom” in the 1970s. There was an Internet boom in the 1980s that rivals in many ways the railway boom of a century earlier in the 1870s. When a blurb writer gets such an essential detail wrong, one be sure of two things: 1) the writer was born after 1970 and 2) the rest of the blurb is as useful as the accuracy of the time period involved. I saw a tale of people with vision, not “blinded” people; entrepreneurs creating new opportunities for transportation and travel with their own personal wealth and that of others. We may live in a world today where fame has become more popular than merit, but calling fame “more important than merit” is to trivialize the meaning of the word “important.” Skip the blurb and watch the movie. It’s good.
“Iris” with Judith Dench and Richard Broadbent — a true story about the novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch and her entry into the “long goodbye” of Alzheimer’s.
“Up at the Villa” Kristen Scott Thomas, who “owned only the shoes she was standing in,” was staying up at the Villa of some friends and Fascist Italy was thriving around her. Would she marry the new British Governor of Bengal in India when he returned from his week long trip? The Princess definitely thought she should and suggests ways one deals with marrying someone for money and prestige that one doesn’t love. Or would she run away with Sean Penn the womanizer who already had a wife but claimed to love her? Well, it was clear that Sean Penn could only be hers if every other pathway in her life were blocked to her. Like a white sauce under heat the plot thickened . . .
“Big Bad Love” with Arliss Howard, Debra Winger, and Rosanna Arquette. Was good to see Debra Winger back in a movie. Almost a reprise of her Urban Cowboy role — twenty years later, divorced with two children a drunk for an ex-husband who applies paint to house and wallpapers his own bathroom with rejection notices from publishers. Another example of the genre of the story of a writer who finally discovers that the only story he has in him is one that he is living while he’s trying to write stories about other things, and in the end of the story we find that we have been watching the result of his writing that story. Your call, but I liked it.
“Prime Gig” A big mining deal operator, Ed Harris, running a telecon room. Notice I didn’t say a big mining operation – it was all glitz, no substance — they not only ripped off the investors, but they ripped off the phone salesmen who closed the deals. If you’ve ever been tempted by a smooth talking phone salesman, watch this movie ASAP and take the cure.

4. CAJUN STORY: (Thanks to Phil Mollere)
== == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == ==

Fr. Boudreaux was pastor at a little chapel in Grand Isle, right on the Gulf of Mexico, where oil workers and fisherman came to worship. The chapel was usually empty during the week, but one Monday morning as the priest made his rounds through the church he saw Pierre sitting in the front pew on his knees praying. He nodded as he walked past Pierre and thought how nice it was to see him praying in church. The next Pierre was back in the front row when Fr. Boudreaux walked by. And the next, and so on every day.

On Friday, Fr. Boudreaux saw Pierre there praying and stopped to talk to him. “Mais, Pierre, it’s good to see you here praying. But let me ask you, is there something bothering you, my son?”

Pierre looked up and the priest heard him say, “Fr. Boudreaux, you heard all dat stuff on de radio about ‘Crisis in de Gulf’?”

“Mais, oui, Pierre, it’s been on the news every day. Is that what’s making you come here to pray?”

“Yes, Father, de way Ah figure it, if Chris’ is in de Gulf, he could be in Grand Isle any day now.”

5. RECIPE of the MONTH for April, 2003 from Bobby Jeaux’s Kitchen:
(click links to see photo of ingredients, preparation steps)
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Seafood Gumbo Filé

This is a serious seafood gumbo of the type my Cajun ancestors made for themselves with the fruits of the sea they caught in their nets and the vegetables of their gardens. Ingredients can be varied or scaled down to make less, if you wish. If you can’t get fresh shrimp and crabs, buy frozen and skip the First Meal portion. I include it as it makes the preparation of the dish more fun and delicious and makes two different meals for the price of one. Note this recipe does NOT call for a roux -- the okra provides the thickening and flavor binding that a roux usually does. Anyone who thinks a gumbo need a roux has been seriously been misled. “Gumbo” was the Creole name for “okra” – thus gumbo soup is not a misnomer, but etymologically accurate. Anyone who makes gumbo without okra is a miscreant in my book. People do make sausage and chicken gumbos, etc., without okra, but the worst ones to me are the seafood gumbos made with a roux, especially those with sausage in them. Please don’t ruin good seafood by adding sausage to this gumbo. [Click any links to see photo.]

To save time, use a pound of frozen cleaned crabmeat and a package of large peeled shrimp and skip the First Meal step.


3 lbs fresh okra
bunch parsley
3 sticks of celery
4 yellow onions
1 green bell pepper
1 lemon
1 Bay leaf
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 pks crawfish tails
1 quart oyster
1 lb crabmeat
4 lbs large shrimp, freshly caught with heads on
2 dozen small to medium blue crabs
Bertolli’s extra lite olive oil
Zatarain’s Crab Boil Liquid
1 lb small frozen shrimp peeled, no tails on
1 tsp shrimp powder (finely ground dried shrimp)
First Meal: Boiled Shrimp and Crabs [optional step] Soak frozen crawfish and frozen shrimp in water with one capful of liquid crab boil. Fill a stock pot, stainless, with water, bring to boil, adding four TBSP on liquid crab oil, TBSP of chopped garlic, a lemon and yellow onion halved, and 8 TBSP of salt. When rolling boil is ready, add fresh heads on shrimp. Boil for two (2) minutes ONLY. Guide is this: as each shrimp floats to top, remove it and place it aside. Keep water boiling, add two more TBSP of liquid crab boil and now toss the crabs into the rolling boil. Return to rolling boil and keep boiling for twenty (20) minutes.
Turn off fire and let soak for ten minutes or so. Remove from pot.

Peel and eat the shrimp and the crabs while preparing the ones you don’t eat for the gumbo. Usually we eat about half for a meal before we begin the gumbo, usually the night before. If you really like peeling slimy dead shrimp and live crabs, skip this step. For quick preparation, I usually buy frozen crab clawmeat and two packages of shrimp, small ones and large ones.

Second Meal: the GUMBO

Chop greens: celery, onions, parsley, bell pepper. Slice okra about 1/8 inch slices. This is the easiest way I've found. I line up the okra five at a time for easy slicing. Discard the tops, and then the tips.

Add enough Bertolli’s Extra Lite Olive Oil [doesn’t smoke while sautéing] to cover bottom of large heavy pot. Put on HIGH and immediately add a few pieces of diced onions to pot. The sound will warn you when the oil is ready to sauté the rest of the greens. Sauté till translucent.
Prepare 8 cups of hot water and have ready.
Add sliced okra to pot and keep stirring. A little brown on the bottom of the pot is good, this makes the roux. Stir and scrape pot bottom and stir back into okra-greens mixture. Add a TBSPN or so of water if brown won’t come off bottom. Keep bottom clear of brown as soon as it forms. Do NOT allow interruptions during this crucial step. A slime will form, exuded from the okra, this is good — keep stirring — any slime will disappear as okra cooks and forms the roux. If bottom of pot browns, add a little water, and stir into gumbo. After okra is cooked down a bit, about 15 minutes of cooking with minor amount of water, add the scalding hot water to pot enough to cover all the okra. Add the Bay leaf now. Now the cooking of the gumbo begins in earnest. Add a couple of TSP of salt. Grind fresh Malabar pepper into pot. Keep heat on HIGH till gumbo all ingredients have been added. If it boils too much, it’s time to add the next ingredients. Don’t add ingredients unless at a boil. Okra needs about 2 hrs of cooking.
Here’s the order of adding ingredients:
As soon as water added:
A pinch of shrimp powder [finely ground dried shrimp]
One or two oysters and all the oyster juice.
Pieces of peeled boiled crabs with fat
2 or 3 crawfish tails with some of their juice.
1 lb crabmeat.
Keep stirring for an hour or until okra slime is gone, then add enough water to come within about 6" of top of the pot [pot should be about 18" high to hold all these ingredients]. Cook for about another hour. When the circular shape of the okra has been cooked away, the gumbo cooking is done.
Then add the boiled ingredients: the boiled crabs [peeled and broken in half to expose the crabmeat – these are already cooked and too precious to overcook, so don’t cook at all]. Add the boiled, peeled large shrimp.

TURN OFF HEAT COMPLETELY. Stir ingredients and gumbo is ready to eat. [Remove Bay leaf for safety. It has sharp edges and should not be eaten.] This is a large amount. Serves about 3 dozen servings, but most normal people will want two servings. It will keep in the fridge for about a week, or it can be frozen.


Prepare some long grain/wild rice and put a scoop in bottom of bowl. Cover with gumbo. Have plate under bowl for a place to put the crab shells as they are encountered in the gumbo. Provide ample napkins.
Provide gumbo filé in a shaker so that eat person can sprinkle some of the green seasoning over their bowl and stir in immediately before eating. [NEVER COOK gumbo after filé has been added – it will become uneatable due to slime.] Filé is a condiment to be applied ONLY after the cooking is done. It adds a flavor and a savor that is indescribable, but to us natives, it is redolent of the bayous and the swamps and tastes wonderful. Keep uneaten gumbo in fridge and place over rice and heat up in microwave for eating, then add the filé. Bon Apétit!>

6. Two Poems by Bobby from Flowers of Shanidar :
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Tomorrow's Blossom

Birth is but that death of spirit
We call life.

Life is but that bud and blossom
In the sky.

Here below the ground, the rhizome
Of our soul

Prepares itself against its bloom

Dream of God

Some people think it is a plus
When we say "In God We Trust."
But it would be miraculous
If only God would trust in us.

Some say the world is marvelous
But others wonder "What's the fuss?"
We only do the things we must
Then ash to ash and dust to dust.

But hop aboard the cosmic bus
Come to where the world is just
Where we can dream of God, we trust,
And in the dream God's dreaming us.

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

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: Ignorance by Milan Kundera

After reading Mary McCarthy's Ideas and the Novel, it was interesting that the next novel I read was all about an idea, the idea of "ignorance." There is one form of ignorance that everyone is subject to -- it falls under the heading of Frost's "the path not taken." What would have happened to us if we had arrived at a major decision point in our lives and had taken the path we didn't take? This is a question that is particularly poignant to emigrants who left a Communist country twenty years earlier and now are faced with returning to their country to face those family members and friends who remained behind while they fled. They will each confront in their own way, the myth of the "Great Return" as Kundera calls it. This is the story of some of those emigrants. Will they remain in their adopted country or return to their homeland?

2.) ARJ2: The Spoils of Poynton by Henry James

There seems to be a rule that in gothic stories that when a large house plays a key role, as in Rebecca, or Jane Eyre, that the house must burn to the ground at the end of the story. In Rebecca, the house was Mandalay, and the ghost was the former wife who died on the premises -- Rebecca ghost doesn't appear per se, but her things, her spoils, fill Mandalay, and her former personal maid is possessed by a tangible presence of Rebecca so much that she goes up in the final conflagration. In Jane Eyre, the ghost is the deranged woman that Mr. Rochester was married to, whose madness was hidden from him, and who now haunts the hallways of the mansion, finally burning it to ground with her inside. In James's story, the ghost was the entire contents of the house, and one is left to wonder what will happen to the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Owen Gareth when the ghost has been finally exorcized by the purifying blaze which extirpated the spoils of Poynton.

3.) ART: A Course in Miracles by Foundation for Inner Peace

Lesson 11 of the Workbook says, "My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world." This is the concept for which I penned an acronym to help me remember to apply it to every aspect of my world some five yeas before I read the Course in Miracles: EAT-O-TWIST, which stands for Everything Allways Turns Out The Way It's Supposed To. If you are supposing something that is basically meaningless, then the world will turn out to seem meaningless to you. But it is not the function of the world to be meaningless, only your supposing that creates that in you. The Course in Miracles, rightly understood, is devoted to helping one change one's habitual method of supposing and thereby reversing one's way of thinking of the world. Therein lies the miracle. Below is the first paragraph of Lesson 11:

[page 18] This is the first idea we have had that is related to a major phase of the correction process; the reversal of the thinking of the world. It seems as if the world determines what you perceive. Today's idea introduces the concept that your thoughts determine the world you see. Be glad indeed to practice the idea in its initial form, for in this idea is your release made sure. The key to forgiveness lies in it.

Your thoughts now will determine whether or not you only read the review linked below or read and do the exercises in the entire Workbook: course2.htm

4.) ART: The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events by Jane Roberts

I recently encountered this passage in Joubert's Notebooks, "All cries and all complaints exhale a vapor, and from this vapor a cloud is formed, and from these heaped-up clouds come thunder, storms, the inclemencies that destroy everything." He wrote this about 200 years ago. Seth tells us that the invisible patterns that underlie the “cries and complaints” are vigorous mental patterns and:

[page 41] Each person's thoughts flow into that formation, forming part of the earth's psychic atmosphere. From that atmosphere flows the natural earthly patterns from which your seasons emerge with all their variety and effects. You are never victims of natural disasters, though it may seem that you are, for you have your hand in forming them. You are creatively involved in the earth's cycles. No one can be born for you, or die for you, yet no birth or death is really an isolated event, but one in which the entire planet participates. In personal terms, again, each species is concerned not only with survival but with the quality of its life and experience.
In those terms, natural disasters ultimately end up righting a condition that earlier blighted the desired quality of life, so that adjustments were made. masseven.htm

5.) ART: The Notebooks of Joseph Joubert by Joseph Joubert

This is an amazing book of quotations taken from Joseph Joubert’s notebooks. He was born in 1754 and died in 1824 without ever writing or publishing anything. He was always preparing to write and found the trip more satisfying than the destination so he kept on traveling without a thought to arriving. He was a friend of many writers who later became famous and he thought a lot about the task, the chore, but mainly the joys of writing. He was deeply spiritual and his insights into the powers of the imagination and the soul startle us with their brilliance. He sees logic and reason as useful as the tail-chasing of a dog and says so in many ways. “What we write with difficulty is written with more care, engraves itself more deeply,” he wrote in 1803.

Another example that illuminates the purpose of his writing: to observe himself and his experiences.

[page 92, 93] Lightning flashes that cross the mind and illuminate so quickly they are hardly noticed. In such cases, more is seen than retained. Thus, whoever does not observe himself carries within him some experience he does not know about.

For more quotes from Joubert’s Notebooks, read the review at: notebook.htm

6.) ART: Science and Sanity by Alfred O. Korzybski

Korzybski’s work created the field of General Semantics, which became known as a science and was taught in colleges and universities. Somehow I had missed it, up until then. I was determined to work my way through this book to make up for lost time and work I did: it took me an entire year of study to get through this dense book — dense in the compression of ideas in it. So dense that many days I was only able to read three or four pages and then had to stop because my brain was so full of ideas that I had to pause for 24 hours for them to be assimilated fully before I could proceed. And each day I applied those ideas and processes to as many situations as came up in my life during that day. It was, rightly understood, a year long seminar in General Semantics for me. In this review I hope to give you, my dear Readers, a taste of that seminar so that the flavor of this important science can remain with you and bring some sanity into the science that abounds all around and inside of you from now on.

7.) ART: How To Develop Your Thinking Ability by Kenneth S. Keyes, Jr.

In closing this fine book, Keyes sums it all up with this concise statement, “This world needs thinkers — not parrots.” I can think of no better way to close this review but to give you a glimpse at the author’s conclusions. Again, I must remind you that, as much as this seems topical and taken from today’s headlines, it was written over fifty years ago.

[page 238] Civilization is just a slow process of learning how to be kind. We must remember with Voltaire that “men will continue to commit atrocities as long as they continue to believe absurdities.” And they will continue to believe absurdities until they are taught HOW TO THINK — and not just pumped full of the local ideas of WHAT TO THINK. Teaching children to think straight is not the complete answer to the world’s ills, but it is an indispensable starting point. As long as we pipe into the heads of children WHAT TO THINK and fail to train them HOW TO THINK, that long will we have various brands of hell on earth. This is the challenge of today. Can we meet it? It is up to us. It is up to YOU and it is up to ME.

To fully appreciate the review, one should read it on-line so that one might view the fine cartoons of Ted Key which are linked at appropriate places. The review is on-line at: thinkabi.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.
