Notes

  • Dedicated with a poem to Ray Lindsay.
  • Includes reference to the influence of Norman Lindsay on Jack Lindsay.
  • Epigraph: There are few, even amomg grown-ups, who understand what it is that forms, creates and binds them together. Life rarely tells them what she is going to do with them. She loves her purpose too well, and when she speaks of her work, it is only to those who wish her success and admire her tools. (Boris Pasternak)
