Self and reality. Symbol and language. Myth and image. Memory and consciousness.
Dream and unreality: locus communis.

Open Notebook

Wasteful day. Mumbling hours. Trapped myself within the labyrinth of internet pages and links—leading from trivial information to additional trivialities—
Reworking previous concepts of epiphanies. Scrounging around in attic trunks for representation of the central figure (Boy-Hero / Avery / Brendan. As in the past journal entries.


1.] treatment of light as object; of value/of talent
The hero-boy that is. Folding light (as a cloth) into a pocket. As a gesture of safe-keeping. For later use.

2.] handling of light/manipulation of light

3.] expressed in values of 3: 3, 6, 9, 12 — but no more than a page

4.] Jack—Jack Rabbit—trickster: game warden (Alec) / controller of Nature, open to Nature
Jack of all trades

5.] confronted by Strife > Old Man Strife
• source of major conflict
• the one who knotted the lives of Grackle, She-Bear, & Fox

Old Man Strife .:name as folktale epithet/allegory
Angst
Discord
Discontent
Blister
Fluster
Bedlam
Tangle
Cacophony
Turbulence
Turmoil
Anarchy
Muddle
Scourge

See Grimm’s “Bear Skin,” “Iron Hans,” or “Snow White and Rose Red”
