Michal refuses to study the potential of amplifying his wonderful Fiction Corpus with yet another english literature book; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the soundness of legislating English as a global lingua franca. I don't have faith in the irksome steps through which English is taught.Pointer

Boosting a person's dexterity with a language isn't like introducing a smoother toilet paper. A language - a spoken language - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to exploit with greater amounts of precision. A shared language cannot be unlinked from the shared logic of a group of people of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

Teaching a pupil to recite English is to deprive her of its cultural context. A good instructor has to prepare a plan for introducing it; the prudent student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a specific corpus, a set of writing of varying size and consistency. A corpus might include anything from a book about literature to some very short stories. I labored on my "tremendous" Fiction Corpus to form a unique kind of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have prepared a million words and I have evaluated them, reframing them - not just to teach an American language but to promote the human spirit, and to prod that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Intimidation With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

Europe, the summer of 2011. Twelve countries. 46 days. One car. One tent. One man. One woman he's just met.

As an artist inspired by a young woman's struggle with self-esteem and bulimia, body acceptance had always featured prominently in my aesthetic. Having recently discovered naturism and its mantra of body acceptance in the United States, I was eager to explore the style and philosophy of naturist clubs and the beauty of naturist campsites in Europe. By a trick of fate, I found myself first in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. Margo's home.

I had an American passport. She didn't. And the fact that I was driving a car with Polish license plates gave her ample opportunity to point out the difference. It wasn't just police and border guards who ethnically profiled me. Regular folks did it too. One campsite owner didn't shake my hand until he realized I was an American. By that point, I had trained myself to use a simplified English, something that more closely resembled what passes for a lingua franca in Europe these days. Something Margo was trying very hard to master.

I've never gone hungry without deserving it. I've never been systemically beaten by a parent. I've never been fondled by a priest. That doesn't mean I can't listen to somebody who has had to experience such abuse and it doesn't mean I can't try to understand. Margo and I traveled 6,000 miles together. We slept in the same tent. We had to listen to each other. A person shouldn't need 6,000 miles to do it. We should be able to listen to each other just because we want to. We should've been taught to do it. If we haven't been taught, we should be learning how to do it and learning fast.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Houses

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word houses in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word houses, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word houses is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Definition of HousesMargo on a trampoline

Houses usually refers to more than one house, but it can also signify the habitual act of a third person, not necessarily human, that provides shelter for somebody or something else, in which case the word is pronounced differently.

Usage of Houses in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

Carrying the bodies down the path, we got to the orchards and turned right. Sneaking along the side of an old and withered orchard, we reached the other half of Field Road. The cemetery was nearby. All we had to do now was pass in front of a few houses. "It's clear," said one of the men. Surreptitiously, we carried the bodies through the streets until we reached a hole in a fence. Going through the hole, we found ourselves inside the cemetery, though tucked into the southwestern corner, which lay hidden from the eastern side by a low-lying ridge. Going along the western edge, we reached another group of men. They were digging.

Verse 150 from the chapter called Security

"My mother's got the blues," your father would have to say, whenever anyone bothered to ask: "Hey, Jesus: where's your mother at?" It was never far from the truth: his mother was bedridden for most of her life. She was in fifty different sanitoriums as a child. Plagued by fatigue, there were days when she wouldn't even move: she would just lie there in the same position all day long, not moving a single muscle - not even to scratch. On the other hand, sometimes there were weeks or even months when she could work miracles. In those days, she could work all day long, cleaning houses for rich Jews in America, selling fancy rocks in the suburbs of Poland: "Flagstones! Get your flagstones!" I can imagine her yelling. I don't know, but I was told she would split those flags herself, loading them onto a truck she borrowed from a friend. What a strange and beautiful woman she was.

"Hey, Jesus: where's your mother at?"

Verses 45-46 from the chapter called Adolescence

It was generally acknowledged that, at some point, the restrictions would have to return. In the meantime, interplanetary trade in fossil fuels began to flourish once again; export was up and it seemed as if Earth's economy would naturally readjust and ever so gradually return to its former dependence on renewable sources of energy. That was wishful thinking. However, terrorists were unexpected - just like the corruption of interplanetary shipping companies was unexpected - just like the Martian Revolution was unexpected. Earth was faced with an unexpected situation: the countless wet scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and fabric-filter baghouses weren't cleaning the air as fast as we were polluting it, which, in other words, meant that the atmosphere, though deceptively improving in the lower regions of the troposphere, was only getting much, much worse in the crucial regions of the stratosphere. That was bad.

Verse 7 from the chapter called Security

When the driver was asked very politely to turn and park his vehicle on the side of the road, he exploded: pieces of terrorist flesh, car parts, and flesh from honest men flew everywhere. Suddenly, the checkpoint was under attack: mortar fire scattered a few troops but then they regrouped. Union helicopters began firing rockets into houses in various neighborhoods in eastern Berlin, especially around Berlin Mitte, which the Union General Staff believed was the center of operations for terrorist activities throughout the beleaguered city. Small arms fire gave the generals an excuse to target buildings that they thought were terrorist strongholds. Many innocent people died.

Verse 676 from the chapter called Adolescence

Your father's aunt lived in Alexandria, Virginia - close to Washington, D.C. She lived in a very nice house in a very nice neighborhood. My mother and I lived with her for many months. I called her my aunt, but she was really my godmother. The word for godmother is unnecessarily complicated in Polish, being equivalent to the term, 'baptismal mother,' so I was told to call her my aunt. My aunt was a lawyer; my mother was not. She cleaned houses.

Usage of Houses in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

Do you know what I was reading recently? As you probably know, the City of Westminster began life as a monastery (hence the famous Abbey). But at the time, the area of Whitehall and the Houses of Parliament was nothing more than a gravely little island surrounded by marshland. Once upon a time, there was another river.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 10, Using Metaphor, Paragraph 1, Clauses 1-3

Finally, I knew where I was, and I suggested we go to St. James's Park; everyone agreed. So we started walking toward the River. And before long, we turned a few corners and saw the bridge ahead of us. But as we were passing by the Aquarium, I made everyone cross the street, so that we were on the southern side. This way, when we climbed onto the bridge, the Houses of Parliament stretched in front of us. But I turned away from their majesty, and, looking down the South Bank, I saw the hospital. Big Ben began to ring. I raised an eyebrow, but I kept on walking.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 2, The Second Day, Part 1, Labor & Economic Reform, Section 17, Crossing Paths, Paragraph 1

This whole situation lies somewhere between ridiculous and absurd. The idea that Albert would crash at your dingy, little bachelor pad: that is a contradictory mixture of both (absurdity and ridiculousness), which makes the proposition impossible. It is a law of human nature that we can only ridicule the things we tolerate, and the absurd is always intolerable, much like your apartment. Last time I checked, your address was not in Albany, which, the guidebook assures me, is the premier address for bachelors of all ages. It took seventy-five years before married men were allowed, and even then they couldn't bring their wives. But of course, things have changed since the nineteenth century, and, as much as a bachelor like you might regret this, women are allowed to own their own houses.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 4

A few blocks down, in the dignified houses of Pall Mall, they have also been welcomed, however reluctantly, and in the smallest numbers perhaps, but they have been suffered to enter those rooms, if only as temporary guests, by the many "exclusive gentlemen's clubs that extend along that distinguished avenue," which I had the opportunity to visit not so long ago.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 5, Clause 1

One of its branches joined the main river above Whitehall, and a lower branch below the Houses of Parliament, thus creating the island of Westminster. Now back in the day, the Tyburn supplied London with drinking water, which was transported to the city by means of a most romantically natural system: a series of conduits made of elm trees. Now apparently, the English elm, if not as stately as our native American, is at least as durable under water - however, I did notice a very small but definite split in the bottom of our sculling boat; you shall have to investigate upon your return. But while you are in London, consider the fate of the Tyburn: it has disappeared; but: it still exists.

Usage of Houses in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

I was ashamed of my mother. I wish I could say I grew out of it. I didn't. I got more ashamed of her as I grew older. It was partly my own fault. I kept my mother hidden so I wouldn't have to face questions about her. I didn't have the answers. I didn't know with absolute certainty which country she was from. I didn't want people to know what happened to her in London. I didn't want them finding out what she was doing in the United States. It was mostly cleaning houses. Sometimes she baked stuff for events in the Ukrainiain-American community. Great success.

– from “The Most Idiotic Actress,” a fictional story that represents the spirit of actual events as far as the author can tell

Due to a law passed by the town government the development was never completed. Of the houses that were built all were on Login Road and passed to City Rural Route 15 with the exception of one house which was on Login Road but faced Profile. Its address was Profile at the end of a vast stretch of undeveloped land with no mailboxes. Logically it would have made sense for the city carrier to service that mailbox. Fortunately logic had nothing to do with the process. Profile was rural territory. Any box on Profile belonged to the rural craft. The only question was whether it would be Rural Route 4, Rural Route 2, or Rural Route 6 which gained the prize.

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

It's natural to hide dirty things. They're embarrassing. But we need to keep in mind that when we hide things that are difficult, we make them seem dirty when they're really something else entirely. And when we keep things that are easy in plain sight, we make them seem clean when they really aren't. That is dangerous.
