"So why horses and not dogs? A paradox posing as a question,-----things are not
what they seem. More to the point they are all dogs to some degree.
After many years of making it became apparent these dogs were a thespian pedigree
even though they are mongrels at heart. They like all the actor stuff---makeup,
costumes, props, the stage, and they like to emote and play to the audience.
Then they started directing the show. Who's in control? What to do? Go with
the flow. Fortunately I had a good boat from the early days and these actor
friends. They like to work and have become my defenders, guides, lookouts
and wake me if I drift at the wheel and, when I forget, they sing to me the song
in my heart. A safe passage needs a good navigator, my old mate Tom, is the best.
He works only for love, sardines and tuna.
Now we're underway on this philosopher's stone's quest, one question
lingers---will the recent evidence of a flat universe affect the journey?"
