Odd, but I've been feeling slightly more and slightly less 'persona non' recently ... depending on where I look, though. On the 'more' topic, I sometimes think that 'persona plus' equates a bit to 'psyche nil' - I'm not sure though. Maybe that's just being self-serving. Also, I'm rethinking 'psyche' in 'relation' to 'spirit'. I'm liking more and more the notion of the 'spirital' (no typo) once again. I'm worrying that the 'psyche' is psychically manipulable - whereas the spirit is own, one's own and out there in the dawn and the evening and the mid-morning sun, feeling the moon's 'can do'.

Well, I've read Marcia, Sadie, and Bernard. I thought I'd stop there for a bit as I felt the need to savour and ruminate - a bit like going off for a cigarette and putting the DVD on pause. Yeah, it's very full of,life and detail and knowledge...
