[NetBehaviour] New spinning pool method

There is a greatly cheering quality to this Simon, especially in the list toward the end somehow which reminded me of the second of the below quotes from Leonardo, but the first (adjacent on Wikiquote) is also apropos:

"The knowledge of past times and of the places on the earth is both an ornament and nutriment to the human mind."

"To lie is so vile, that even if it were in speaking well of godly things it would take off something from God's grace; and Truth is so excellent, that if it praises but small things they become noble."

I found this by searching for "noble" on the wikiquote page with ctrl+F, to find the second half of the second half of the sentence, but the first half reminded me of Macbeth which I re-read last night:

"Methought I heard a voice cry, Sleep no more!
Macbeth does murder sleep, -- the innocent sleep;
Sleep that knits up the ravell'd sleeve of care,
The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
Chief nourisher in life's feast."

The method of propulsion on this ‘sloop’ job was a small pool
On board
They clambered into the pool
Three oarsmen used paddles to swirl the water around them
Creating a vortex.
As they spun faster and faster
A ripple in the fabric of the day
Began to form and
The oarsmen would need to
Pinpoint the exact moment
They needed to stop paddling at which time they would
Throw down the paddles
And leap overboard as
The vortex accelerated
At the tremendous rate.
Suddenly the whole sloop would rise up to a height
Of about twenty odd feet
Then plunge back to Earth
And create a great racket
And a big mess but then if
All went according to
Plan L and B would find
Themselves in a different
Time stream.
Hopefully in The Palaeolithic
Early part around two million years
Temperate zone of valleys
Forests of northern African continent.
Tricky to get back... without
The big oarsmen..
But they’d have to think
About it meanwhile have
A campfire and pick some
Fruit and have a natter.. carry
On the conversation they were having
About the big chalk drawings
Of closed systems
They were planning
Sketches of moths
Types of echo
Best and favourite harmonies ie a third fifth seventh plus extensions built on a flattened
Fifth that created a binary tension
Consisting of a yearning
And a beautiful release
At the same time
Plus just a good old
1 4 5 cycle
Like the Cuban stuff
The Kinshasa sound
And the hornpipe
>From Canadian wharves
The trance of it
The reference in the words
To small roads in Liverpool
Or Manchester
>From trips up the canal
Early pale shadows
Of tall chimneys
Fat gasometers
Outside towns
Dinner dance
With white sauce
Wings of falcon
Badly tuned radio
Scraping itching ear drums
Night driving
Hair oil
Wax crayon

And all that stuff

Like Notty Ash

Picking apples is a good idea
As an alternative to tiny digital endorphin hit! Ha

Best wishes in these weird times,

Simon In Brighton
