Re: Module #1 - “MONOLOGUES“ - Fall 2020

Meditation - *Started with 'To be or not to be, that is the question'. What is 'be'? What is that which 'be~s'. *It is content - stuff. *If all of what is here is 'content' (stuff) then what does the stuff be 'in'. What's the container for the stuff? Space. *Space isn't empty.

A something which happened and which I experienced, even though I have no explanation for it, is the complete eradication of cancer from someone's body. A friend had been diagnosed with cancer, and had the operation and the doctor said he was unable to get it all but at the same time the diagnosis w...

Re: Module #1 - "MINGLING" - Fall 2020

"Yes, there is that wand -- 11 inches, mahogany and pliable -- but I don't remember what the core was. I wonder if that is the last wand that Mr. Ollivander sold of mahogany. I wonder, too, if he didn't have any in stock after that date, that he simply wasn't making them anymore and that wand was so...

Re: Module #1 - "MINGLING" - Fall 2020

"He simply didn't ever make wands with that wood" Tarma muses, half to herself and half to February. She glances at Sindor, wondering if he knows anything about the matter, then looks back at February. "February, do you know why Mr. Ollivander didn't use mahogany or ... if he used to use it and then...

1. What's the most interesting thing you learned in this lesson? I had no idea about the legends of the beginning of soap-making; I'd actually never really thought about it.

Re: Module #1 - "MINGLING" - Fall 2020

"Oh, how interesting!" Tarma exclaims, her mind going to the Wand-making class and observations about mahogany there, as well as to what Pottermore has to say about it and then to other various sources. She knew that mahogany wasn't mentioned in her class nor on Pottermore. (She knew why 'she' hadn'...

Re: Module #1 - "MINGLING" - Fall 2020

Tarma listens to Sindor and his opening talk. She's glad she signed up for the class and wonders what kind of wonderments will happen during the course of it. Having claimed a chair at the 'Round Table' (and vastly amused to see how Sindor had arranged the desks - shades of Excalibur !), Tarma plops...
