Train, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is poring over the soundness of reinforcing his mighty Fiction Corpus with a morality play about art sites; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the soundness of utilizing English as an international standard. I don't have faith in the pedantic routine with which the English tongue is presented for study.Pointer

Fortifying a person's handiness with a language isn't like creating a sharper arrowhead. A language - a common language - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to employ with a greater amount of precision. A common language cannot be torn from the prevailing culture of a community 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 strip her of its cultural context. A proper instructor must create a strategy for introducing it; the discerning student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of writing of varying scope and consistency. They may contain anything from a book about literature to a whole bunch of historical fiction. I watched many moons pass developing my "gargantuan" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise class of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in many different forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have framed a million words and I have separated them, reformulating them - not just to teach English vocabulary but to describe the human spirit, and to goad that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Train

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 train in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word train, 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 train is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Train 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.

I had said good evening, having had no idea that my colleagues were about to strike. I would've been blameless, but I relished my feelings of power and whimsy - no matter how vicarious they had to be, considering my own restraint: for, when I was young, I never had to shatter glass. That came later.

Verse 342 from the chapter called Adolescence

The town of Treblinka lay before them like a storybook, the right page already flattened out against the ground, stretching northward all the way to the town of New Court, the left page still hanging in mid-air, supported by the belfries of Town Hall, the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul, and St. Hedwig's Basilica, lifted by the hilltop neighborhoods of Bridge Street, and especially by the one on Casimir the Great, which rose directly to the southwest, almost blocking the view, but, nevertheless, below the horizon, its many-colored houses perhaps wishing for greater heights, but, unfortunately, constrained by the fact that each house was indivisibly connected to the other: a block of townhouses on the hilltop, anchoring the landscape and yet reaching high, as if its exclusive inhabitants were uncertain whether it were truly time to turn the page.

Verse 441 from the chapter called Security

Your father was like a prince. Riding his horse up and down the column of pilgrims, his face hidden by his mask, he gazed upon his ward: the thousands of men, women, and children who, from the buttcrack of dawn, decided to leave their comfortable homes in Wroclaw for a week of walking and singing and praying and God knows what other kinds of deprivations before reaching Bright Hill monastery, kneeling before the icon, and taking the train back home.

Verse 261 from the chapter called Security

With fire also came a new and unprecedented form of torture. Sticks could pierce and rocks crush, but fire burned. This hurt. No longer did man need to restrain his victims for fear of doing them irreversible damage; he simply needed to catch up and shine that beautiful burning torch in their eyes and poke them once or twice - as often as necessary. With fire, the weak could extort from the strong; the one could extort from the many. The threat of fire was great: unlike sticks and stones, the flame spread and hungered. It was necessary to protect it, to hide it from one's enemies - whoever one's enemies were. Information was key. Who had fire and who didn't? Whose fire was still burning and whose had gone out? When was the last boom-flash and when would there be another one? These were very important questions.

Verse 4 from the chapter called Security

The Krupnik was being very polite, considering Jesus's incommodiousness. Not wanting his precarious position suddenly to be altered, or his luck (as he felt it, scant luck) to run out, Jesus decided not to ask any more questions. With nothing coming from the other side, we drove in silence. Turning onto Millennium Bridge, we crossed the river. Passing by the train tracks and the road to the airport, we swung around the industrial parks and found ourselves on the southern side. Going down the Avenue of the Home Army, we didn't turn back towards the city until we reached the road to Cracow.

Usage of Train 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.

Upstairs, on the other hand, was no laughing matter. There was a small crowd of gentlemen surrounding the door to the ladies' room. It was locked, and poor Christie was locked inside. I asked what the big problem was, and somebody told me the lock was jammed. I couldn't restrain myself: "Doesn't get much use, does it? Don't worry Christie, we'll get you out of here. These gentlemen aren't trying to kidnap you. She's a British subject, you know: that's why she hasn't kicked down your door - that's the way we do it in America."

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 12, Private Clubs, Paragraph 7

I stood there watching the train for a while. My mind was mostly empty. But there was a moment yesterday, a moment I was recalling.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 1, Cancer, Paragraph 4

ANDY: I want self-control, Macy: I want discipline, self-restraint. I want a society that controls itself.

MACY: How?

ANDY: ...

MACY: ...

Soon enough, she was swallowed by the waiting crowd. They were all waiting to get it on. They might as well have all been naked: I could see right through their clothes. They were all coming in droves: like bees: coming on, getting off. The train kept going in and out of tunnels.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 8, Allowing For One's Imagination, Paragraph 10

I don't think he hides it from us. I don't think he's incapable of feeling sadness. I just don't think he's ever been sad. This morning, my dear sister, when I went with Nike to the train station, I saw him board his train to Paris, and I thought to myself: "These days are sad; they are filled with sadness.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

The train made all local stops. People got off. More passengers got on. The man in the space suit lingered. Tatum stared at him discreetly. She thought to herself, technicians sometimes take trains from one stop to the next. She had never seen one go this far. She mentioned it to Neal.

"Are you sure it's the same one?"

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story about a woman with a chip on her shoulder

Clark watched the truck turn around. Its suspension bobbed. Metal clashed. Dust leapt into the air. The hulking frame disappeared behind its own trail of smoke. The weary moan of the drive train cut into Clark's soul.

"Come on," said Shephard. "The site's more than twenty-five miles away. We need to get moving."

– from “Two Dudes and a Chinese Desert,” a friendship story featuring a picky kind of guy

Fifteen minutes passed. Manga People trickled onto the platform. Within an hour, a large crowd had gathered. A train lumbered onto the track. Tatum and Neal tried to get aboard. They were squeezed in by Manga People from every direction. Tatum noticed a passenger in a space suit. "Thanks a lot," she thought to herself. "This car is packed as it is."

– from “Dirty Manga People Are Disgusting,” a spooky story about a woman who doesn't like to take shit from anyone

It trained one of its nostrils on the man. It was enough to make Gog flutter like a pennant. Wads of snot blasted into him. It made him heavy. His arms strained under the weight. The dragon blew harder. Gog held on. With each snort, the man grew stiffer. The dragon stopped trying. It was out of breath.

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story featuring a frank discussion of earth's cruelty

Tatum reached up. She pulled the emergency stop. The passengers lurched. The train screeched to a halt.

Usage of Train in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

(KOKOMO enters unseen.)

FLETCHER: You like it when they stroke your hair and your cheek.

ALICE: Fletcher: stop now.

KOKOMO: That is not a proper massage - is it?

ALICE: I think not.

KOKOMO: Are you alright?

ALICE: I wish I were.

KOKOMO: Stay still. You'll hurt yourself. Step away, please.

FLETCHER: You think you can do better.

KOKOMO: You strained it.

– ACT I, lines 682-690

FLETCHER: You thought Norfolk had a checkered past. Being a former prison colony's prison colony is nothing next to Pitcairn.

ALICE: I would never have imagined it was like that. I thought it was a paradise.

FLETCHER: I'm writing a play about it - specifically about the woman who chopped off that man's head. She's an ancestor of mine. Maybe later we can go over a few scenes.

ALICE: I'd love to.

FLETCHER: If your neck doesn't still hurt.

ALICE: I'm feeling much better now, thank you.

FLETCHER: If you strained it, you strained it. I have to say, you have surprisingly little tension.

ALICE: It's my honeymoon. I've been having lots of sex.

FLETCHER: You shouldn't have reminded me.

ALICE: Why not?

– ACT I, lines 626-635

(ALICE grimaces and rubs her neck again.)

FLETCHER: You really did strain it.

ALICE: It's fine.

FLETCHER: It's not. Come on. Kokomo has a bunch of differently scented oils. You can have your pick.

ALICE: It seems you've got me at your mercy.

FLETCHER: You won't regret it - neither will your neck.

ALICE: We'll see.

FLETCHER: You're welcome. It's too bad Kokomo's not here. She's the expert.

ALICE: Where is she?

FLETCHER: Who knows?

– ACT I, lines 487-495

(LESBIAN and MS. JACKSON exit. ALICE feels a pain in her neck and begins to rub it.)

FLETCHER: I didn't want any. It was considerate of you to ask. My mother is so kind and thoughtful. What's wrong?

ALICE: I strained my neck swimming.

FLETCHER: Let me take a look.

ALICE: It's alright.

FLETCHER: Are you sure?

ALICE: I'll manage.

FLETCHER: I happen to be a professional masseuse.

ALICE: I thought you were a carpenter's apprentice.

FLETCHER: On an island like this, there's no such thing as strict specialization of labor.

– ACT I, lines 439-447

ALICE: I forgive you. Be a man once more.

FLETCHER: With a man's heart, I thank you. No longer must you fear my advances. The object of our intimacy has been achieved. I intend to follow your lead and pledge my life to the woman I love.

ALICE: Do I know her?

FLETCHER: You do. I love Kokomo with all my heart. My soul yearns for her soul's touch.

ALICE: In that case, let's finish these scenes in celebration of your restored manhood and your love for Kokomo.

FLETCHER: I know just the right page from which to start. 'What a blessed thing it is to confess! The firmly wound nut, when leashed to its bolt, will weather every blow. No strain is so big, no pressure so strong, no hand so steady, nor no patience so long that would eventually break the metal's hold when applied to just one end. It would turn forevermore in tantalizing defiance. Bring two solid hands together - with two worthy hearts - one to hold tight the bolt, the other to untwist his soul - and you shall feel the immediate release that with it brings joy, the work of resolution, and the ease which maketh that work seem slight.'

ALICE: Well proclaimed, poet!

FLETCHER: If only the rest were so good.

ALICE: I have no doubt it will be.

FLETCHER: As a show of thanks for your faith, I hereby expunge certain kisses from this scene, restoring to its solitary glory the one final kiss of the scene's end - if I may be so bold.

Usage of Train 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.

Management, rather than allow any rural route to permanently profit from this massive windfall of mail, decided it didn't have time to settle the issue immediately. Yet dictator Steve the Second somehow found time to drive out to Profile and Login every single day to personally deliver one woman's mail. Until he could hire and train a temp to do it for him.

The rural union filed a grievance. Of course a month was not enough time to arbitrate a local matter. Not with the National Mail Count on the horizon. There were grievances all over.

– from “Wrong Again,” a success story that represents things that have actually happened, though the details are fictional

A small but considerable uproar followed reports of the accident. Some people unfairly blamed the drivers. Most blamed the postal service and the other guys for not adequately training their men. A handful blamed the professor. Everybody tried to blame the town. For the first time in a while it seemed like the town actually hadn't done anything wrong. No private person or business was willing to pay for sidewalks, with the one exception being the post office. Something Postmaster Steve pointed out rather tactlessly one day in the local paper.

– from “Wrong Again,” a success story to teach children about grown-up stuff that may or may not work

Orbitz pulled up the hood of his skin-suit. Destiny lay aboard the Nautilus. Orbitz sputtered his way towards the stern of the ship. By the time he got to the airlock he could see the flashing red lights of an intruder alert. Marriott had done her job. Orbitz boarded the ship. He looked at the clock. There wasn't much time left before his bomb would explode. He headed carefully towards the gallery. He wasn't sure how this was going to happen. When he got to the hatch he saw Heather Mills. All eight of her legs were stretching to their limit. She was craning her head over the edge of the window, straining to see the Argo. She lifted herself a little higher with the hand bar. She dropped her doll. It didn't matter. She was fascinated by the ship's slow spinning descent. It was already transitting the planet. "That's why she doesn't see me," thought Orbitz. "She's distracted by the view. She knows there's an intruder but she's acting like nothing's wrong." Orbitz wondered for a moment if he had told himself too much. If Heather Mills might know what was happening. He tried to remember what he had told himself so many years ago. He smiled. He had mentioned the sauna. He had tried in vain to change his past. He had said go to the sauna. It was the one piece of the ship that went back in time. Heather Mills had read his mind on the bridge. That's why she was here. She had come to be next to the sauna. It was on the other side of the hall. Like a child she had been distracted. Orbitz realized his entire destiny pivoted on the childishness of this pathetic little girl. It made him give the lightest of chortles. Heather Mills jerked her head. She saw Orbitz's reflection in the dark part of the glass. Before she could turn around he had shut the hatch. He locked it. He turned and walked into the sauna.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance dictated by my respect for Stanislaw Lem, if you know who that is

Grendel went home. The ogre saw her in her training bra and spit his beer onto the carpet. He called for Grendel's mother. When Grendel's mother saw what Grendel was wearing she got angry. She asked Grendel where she got it. Why she was wearing it. Grendel told her that her breasts hurt.

Grendel's mother embraced her daughter. She kissed her all over and told her she was sorry. She said from now on she would take better care of her daughter.

– from “Little Grendel's First Hair,” a fairy tale story about things we don't like to talk about that unfortunately exist in real life

Sir Lewis stared at the paper. The letters blended together. He tried reciting words in his head. Matsumoto. Concert hall. All of it irrelevant. The concert starts in forty minutes. That's important. If Joe picks a train at random. What are the chances.

Love is the answer...

What are we waiting for? Let's accept it!

Are you a eunuch?

The art show that defies abuse

St. Sebastian

Wall art symbolizing strength and protest

St. Sebastian was a member of the Roman Emperor's praetorian guard who had the audacity to teach Christian values while on the job. I think active duty American military men and women who don't vote or who don't publicly express a political opinion because of the uniform are either being idiotic or are being cowed by the threat of punishment from a superior. Either way, they're eunuchs. My purpose in creating the St. Sebastian Series is to put the flesh and face of the true soldier front and center. The good soldier puts his mission ahead of himself. He often ends up dead. The true soldier knows a bad mission when he sees one and he isn't afraid to say it. Saint Sebastian was not a cow, despite what clever people would have you believe. Saint Sebastian is a patron saint for all protestors who face the arrows of the mob for speaking out.
