The End of Harry


The Twelfth Dream has been posted at Farrago’s Wainscot (it doesn’t look like one of the normal beginnings, but run with it for a minute; there’s a purpose to the madness); and so, the Oneiromantic Mosiac of Harry Potemkin is now complete. All the pathways are there, and the end has been looped back and tied off with a bit of thread from the beginning. I feel like Nicol Williamson in Excalibur: “It. Is. Done.”

Neal Von Flue has supplied a very fitting and striking final picture for us. This project is hugely indebted to him, and not just because he gave us fantastic art every month, but because–once upon a time–he said “yes” when I asked for a piece of art, and I kept asking and he, graciously, kept saying yes. You should wander over to his LJ––and congratulate him too. Also, was (is) a very class act in the editing department. He put up with a serial comma quirk of mine for twelve months, nudged me when I went too far astray, and kept me honest and focused. I probably would have run screaming into the woods somewhere around June if he’d been there to hog-tie me.

Without further furor, I will get out of the way and let you read. It’s a trip. Have fun.
