  1. Your first experience makes me think of the following poem, especially the opening lines: Lift Not the Painted Veil
    Lift not the painted veil which those who live
    Call Life: though unreal shapes be pictured there,
    And it but mimic all we would believe
    With colours idly spread,-behind, lurk Fear
    And Hope, twin Destinies; who ever weave
    Their shadows, o’er the chasm, sightless and drear.
    I knew one who had lifted it-he sought,
    For his lost heart was tender, things to love,
    But found them not, alas! nor was there aught
    The world contains, the which he could approve.
    Through the unheeding many he did move,
    A splendour among shadows, a bright blot
    Upon this gloomy scene, a Spirit that strove
    For truth, and like the Preacher found it not.

    Percy Bysshe Shelley

    BTW – like the podcast idea!

  2. I kind of like the pod cast, not really for the content though .I’ve been hearing you’re rambling thoughts for a good chunk of my life, but rather to hear you’re voice, because I kind of forgot what it sounded like!
