Nice piece on Viggo in the NY Times Can't Post

The New York Times has selected Viggo Mortensen as one of its 'Greatest' of 2018 - there's a nice piece on him here.

Tolkien also gets a mention in the piece on George R.R. Martin in the same series.

great article [In reply to] Can't Post

kudos to the writer for capturing some of the elusive essence of our king

Viggo shows up in my dreams a lot, not in the sense you might think (Sean Bean gets that role) but as a kind of guide or catalyst. If he's in a dream, it's always what Jungians call a numinous dream, one that has meaning or a message for me.

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.

-- Gaston Bachelard

Dreams [In reply to] Can't Post

I have had several dreams of Dan O'Gorman's Fili. It is always a perfectly beautiful day, and he is backlit by a golden setting sun and standing in a field of sunflowers and purple lupins. He always asks what I doing with my life or asks me to think about what I should do with the rest of my life I think these are numinous dreams as well.

Please, call me Ve.
