Notes

  • Dedication: Again, for Richard.
  • Epigraph: That broken-open lowliness is the reality, not the language! Forget the phraseology. I want burning, burning. Be friends with your burning. Burn up your thinking and your forms of expression! Moses, those who pay attention to ways of behaving and speaking are one sort. Lovers who burn are another. Jelaluddin Rumi.
  • This book is divided into three sections: Lovers ( pp1 - 37); Survival (pp39 -79); Liberty and Pain (pp81 -121)
