    Where did we leave him? Have you checked behind the couch?

    what did you end up getting? I just had a 'texas tornado' (meal) with peri fries and coke, for lunch, from 'archies' which is a sort of knock off mcdonalds. 50p sugar tax on the uncut coke.

    Youre consistently erudite, concise and insightful, one of the best writers here. Let others do the doubting for you.

    It ended up a bit acrimonious but before that it was one of the top four or five threads ever. If I can work out hiw to successfully copy and paste from the ipad in going to ressurect it minus the ugly bits. Lots of unfinished business there. A good shared project everyone can get involved in.

    Nah, apparently I felt the same way.

    It honestly was fascinating to me how liberated I felt under a different name - even though I knew that everyone knew it was me!

    Yeats had first mentioned the value of masks in 1910 in a simple poem, "The Mask," where a woman reminds her lover that his interest in her depends on her guise and not on her hidden, inner self. Yeats gave eloquent expression to this idea of the mask in a group of essays, Per Amica Silentia Lunae (1918): "I think all happiness depends on the energy to assume the mask of some other life, on a re-birth as something not one's self." This notion can be found in a wide variety of Yeats's poems.

    I'd say:

    Music (+ Events)
    Politics
    Art, Literature & Film
    Miscellaneous (+ Thought, Technology and Nature)
