you have the makings of another very interesting essay. Keep on truckin'!

A five star brunch of ideas here. I loved what Heidegger had to say about moods. And has ever a river been so perfectly named as the Perfume River? I've knelt beside it, and it comes quickly with it's redolent moods. Hayashi music's lack of notation is hand in hand with improvisational jazz. Who knows. Maybe that accounts, partially anyway, for the popularity of jazz, as a formless form, in Japan. Teaching dance without mirrors seems an improvement. The dance, not the dancer, is the point, eventhough individual dancers can certainly be admired. And what a night that must have been for Nietzsche in Venice. Such a beautiful acceptance.
