And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so; but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? Is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. -- Luke 22:24-30

A letter to Roberta Sklar on 04.04.07-- via e-mail:


Thank you for the invitation notice, and your previous e-mail (which I had lost -- ergo, no reply!). I do recall that Robert Patrick had sent you a copy of the Conrad Ward photograph from "The Good Woman of Setzuan" at Hunter College back heaven knows when -- those were the days!

I am listing my three sites below in the event you wonder what I've been up to and am up to now. I am particularly happy with the site "The New York Times Crossword in Gothic" (it's a blog)! When one is homebound as much as I am these days (not my health, but my current obligations) the internet is an electronic escape -- imagine in olden days, one looked at the wall! No, that's not true -- as a child, I remember being snowed in for weeks in the winter months in South Dakota and there was always something to keep one's attention -- card games, jigsaw puzzles, drawing, reading -- that's right, no television! As a matter of fact, we had a radio that stood on the floor and had a big green eye! We would listen to the programs in the dark -- "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" -- and many others. So a dozen souls in the dark in the middle of winter warmed by a log-fed stove never suspecting that one day old twitching fingers would be furtively hammering while gazing at an elaborate light bulb with constantly moving images that respond to one's fleshy digits!
