I'd appreciate it if, before I log-off, folks
share their positions with respect to my
un-credited use of "exquisitely precise".

It really doesn't matter to me, one way
or the other, but if it's to be the 'seed crystal'
that'll precipitate our forever being-separate,
I'd appreciate knowing that - being aprised
of that, Forthrightly.

That'd Fre-me-up, a bit - knowing I don't have
to hope for any Formal hearing.

It's 'funny'.

I've often experienced folks obviously using
'my' words verbatim, and in close paraphrases.

What's 'funny' is the way that there's such
'finality' with respect to the 'standards' to which
folks hold me.

It's 'Interesting'.

It's a Hard way to 'die'.

'slain' by those to whom you've given-everything.

But, if folks want it, I've given them the 'excuse'.

It's funny, too, I've always done that.

It's in the rough-edged way that I Love.

You won't, of course - express your opinion.

At least, not overtly.

It's 'interesting'.

[Please Forgive me this. The aching is spilling-
over, just now.]

| Perhaps I'm Guilty of an analogous thing.
| Every 'time' I've used ~"exquisitely precise",
| including in AoK with respect to the mapping
| of the "epicritic system", I've actually been
| using the words of another Author - I believe,
| Carpenter & Sutin [=Human Neuroanatomy=].
| "Exquisite" is an exquisite word for which I know
| of no adequate replacements.
| Every 'time' I use the word, "exquisite", it's a
| bit of an homage to the Author.
| I should've set this straight long ago, though. I've
| been aware of it all along. I thought, because I
| Ref-ed Carpenter & Sutin in AoK, waxed on-and-
| on about how I Love their Book [probably augment-
| ing their royalties in the process], all was hunky-
| dory.
| But this little article in the =New York Times= [whose
| circulation I've also single-handedly increased :-],
| caused me to reconsider my assumption.
| Any who wish to cast-me-out because of this
| should feel Free to do so.
| I can't be cast-out any further than I already have
| been, anyway.
