I have so much more to write about than this, but I have GOT to get my work caught up or I am a dead duck…
Dreamt last night about two names that would be very important to me:
“Clifford F. B.” and I can’t remember the other now! Accck! The odd thing is that the F in the Clifford name was pronounced “FEE,” so that the name sounded like, “Clifford Phoebe.”
I did a search for Clifford F. B. and nothing came up, except that there are lists of names that happen to end with Clifford and begin with F. B. (such as R. L. Clifford, F. B. Kline). More interesting was the fact that Clifford Phoebe brought up TONS of results for THE HOUSE OF SEVEN GABLES, wherein two of the main characters are Clifford and Phoebe. Clifford was a completely misunderstood, framed, and inappropriately punished individual, while Phoebe was an innocent, new, young energy brought into the house just as Clifford was returning from his wrongful imprisonment of many, many years. Clifford, frail and old and slightly crazy, found solace and longing in the presence of the youthful, embracing Phoebe. With yet another attack against Clifford, he had to run off into the world to try to hide from the accusations that he killed yet another man (a relative who had died of natural causes). Exhausted and surrendering, Clifford returns home anyway and finds that the evidence does not stand against him and that he is the inheritor of this relative’s estate! Clifford and Phoebe live happily ever after! (pretty much)
I have never read this book, so I don’t know if it is relevant, but it’s interesting to ponder… as was my realization that the scarification dream symbol can be found on the underbelly of the Blue Whale!
Well, probably Abimn!
