Island, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's weighing the soundness of boosting his gigantic Fiction Corpus with his best fiction romance novels yet; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I accept the feasibility of honoring English as a worldwide standard. I do reject the customary form in which English is presented for study.Pointer

Enriching a person's expertise with a language isn't like producing a brighter bead. A language - a common language - isn't just a tool that you can teach yourself to wield with greater amounts of precision. A shared tongue can't be disjoined from the philosophical currents of a society 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 person to recite English is to rob her of its cultural context. An informed educator must prepare a plan for introducing it; the discerning pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a body of written works of varying size and consistency. A corpus may contain anything from a book about literature to the best fiction romance novels ever written. I watched many moons pass developing my "trivial" Fiction Corpus in order to form a precise sort 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 devised a million words and I have scrutinized them, reshaping them - not merely to teach an American language but to promote the human soul, and to prod that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Replace Passive-aggressive behavior With Truth in 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

In June of 2011 I arrived in Europe for what I hoped would be a great adventure; my only concrete plan, to visit Croatia. By September I had driven 6,000 miles and visited 12 different countries, all with a woman I met on the first Friday of my trip.

I had come to Europe to experience European naturism, a movement whose philosophy matched my aesthetic of body acceptance and whose organizational structure and leadership I had thought almost exclusively restricted to the western half of the continent. I was shocked to learn that naturism had an official home in Poland, a country not especially known for its liberal culture. I was less shocked to discover that the home was owned by a Dutchman, but even more shocked to learn that it had been largely built by Margo.

As an American, I was full of optimism and confidence bordering on recklessness. I was ready to run the wheels off the car I had just bought and eventually I would. As a European, she was cautious and mistrustful. She needed to make sure the air conditioner worked. Which it did. If you knew how to turn the broken knob in just the right way.

Despite the cops in Vienna. Despite the rain in Veržej. Despite getting lost in Italy. Despite parting at Soest. Despite that night in Amsterdam. Despite our fight in Lisieux. Despite the storm in the Bois de la Roche. Despite that terrible morning outside Collonges. Despite the long road to Pielenhofen, we came back safe and sound and most importantly we were happy. We had started to learn how to listen. We had left the devils of the road behind and the devils ahead seemed just a little bit smaller. We had started to open up.

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 Island

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 island in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Island 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.

"Alright," said Jesus. "We'll do it. Let's just go back to Sand Island first: look at the map. We'll send the pastor down to the hospital - you know: the one down by the Cathedral - he'll bring us back some good doctors."

Verse 471 from the chapter called Arms

These were only thoughts of momentary fascination. On the whole, Jesus pursued his work with interest. He did not test God. He applied himself and his men always with reason. When he entered St. Elizabeth's church all by himself in the middle of the night when there was no electricity around and killed the seven men hiding inside by stabbing their throats or otherwise, it was the most reasonable thing he could think of. When he sat on Sand Island waiting for Stalin or one of his other commanders to report, there wasn't anything else he could reasonably have done. He had already shown his men how to do it; now they had to go and do it: bravely - that's all. To the extent that they were unhindered by their own selfish desires, or the selfish desires of non-combatants, they were successful, and Jesus prosecuted his personal war against terrorism with admirable results.

Verse 6 from the chapter called Bohemia

Sand Island was very close to the Cathedral - so close, in fact, that it was often confused for Cathedral Island. Cathedral Island was not really an island - perhaps it once was, in the past, before something was filled, but in those days the Cathedral stood in a part of Center City which in no way could be called an island. Center City itself was an island, formed by the Oder River, which flowed around Sand Island, and the old Oder River, which formed a semicircle around Center City to the north. If this were the island referred to by the name Cathedral Island, it would be a very generous thing for a building that only occupied a small portion of a much larger landmass. Visitors to the Cathedral often looked for Cathedral Island, but nowhere was it to be found. When they asked for it, local people often said: "It must be that one over there." But that was Sand Island, and even though it had, not just one, but two churches: one Roman Catholic and one Orthodox, there was no Cathedral. Thus there was an island with no Cathedral and a Cathedral with no island. There was no easy solution to this problem.

Verse 473 from the chapter called Arms

Jesus's mythic image was propelled, in large part, by his need for security. When he commandeered the Blessed Virgin Mary's church on Sand Island, he quartered himself in the presbytery. Not only was the pastor sworn to secrecy, but was obliged by Jesus's righteous entreaties to pray to the Blessed Czeslaw night and day for success in their common quest for truth. In exchange, Jesus promised to press the Pope and do everything possible to further Czeslaw's canonization, which, for centuries, had languished. Almost as an afterthought, Jesus obtained papal confirmation, when, in possession of numerous tickets to the distant and previously inaccessible planet Mars, he successfully bargained with the Holy See, and, in exchange for transporting clerics, he received confirmation (and extraordinary privileges) not only for a regular order of knights, but, remembering his ancient promise to the pastor, for the extraordinary canonization of the Blessed Czeslaw, which, up till then, Jesus had completely ignored. So urgent was your father's need for secrecy in those days that Jesus had been ready to promise the world - salvation - milk and honey in heaven - a second story to the presbytery - just so the pastor would keep his word. Not a single parishioner could find out what a distinguished guest he had - it was imperative.

Verse 421 from the chapter called Arms

"We need arms," said Jesus. "And I know where to get them. We need bridges; we need to secure every checkpoint around the Old Town - but first, we go north: to Sand Island. That will be our headquarters. We go north, penetrate the southern part of Center City, get to the armory, then bring those weapons back down to the Island. We secure the whole perimeter by converting every checkpoint to our cause - by force if we have too. Then, at dawn, you'll have your proof. We've got lots of work to do - lots of terrorists to kill. Kula, Nitka, Laska, Flak: you're in charge of weapons. Kula: you've got ammunition. Nitka: you're in charge of armor. Laska: shoulder weapons. Flak: the big guns. Stalin: you're with me. Stolarksi: you've got to secure every bridge coming out of Sand Island. Got it?"

"Got it!"

Usage of Island 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

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.

Patsy was ecstatic. He asked the Secretary of the Interior if he could go officially to Japan and assist the Japanese in their investigation. "Absolutely not," she said. Patsy went to her husband, explaining, among other things, that if a U.S. Park Policeman were to make an arrest in the Liberty Island case, it would mean the Secretary of the Interior would be holding a big press conference. Television has a way of boosting a politician's prospects. Eventually, the Secretary gave in.

The best place to practice such skills was on Long Island. Beyond the boundary of New York City lay what Junior liked to call, 'Country Club County.' It had a permanent population of women whose most active pursuit was sipping martinis on the verandah. As their husbands were away on business, it was Junior's responsibility to give them exercise.

The boy saw it. He ventured onto the island. He twirled his flute in his hand. He said, "Is it true you slew a dragon measuring twenty-thousand paces?"

"What difference does it make?" asked Gog.

"I don't believe you could. You can't even overtake a boat powered by eunuchs."

"Are you calling me weak?"

"That's what it sounds like."

– from “In the Beginning, There was Gog,” a fantasy story about a man and a woman who stick together

Gog spent his days fishing from the smallest island in the salt lake [e.g. Osman Island]. Shaped like a fist, it rose from the water to a height of ten paces. Magog would come by in her own boat. "Come down from there," she would cry. "You know there are no fish in this lake."

"If there is but one fish," said Gog. "I will catch it." Years passed. The man who sat on the smallest island in the salt lake caught no fish.

Usage of Island 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.

GREY GOOSE: Not to mention this island's penchant for making the most grotesque of assumptions - never mind that. I did a terrible thing in burning down that house: I know it. I've been paying for it ever since. I'm finally sorry for doing it. I don't think I could've said that this morning. Something's changed. I don't want to be like that anymore. I don't want to do those things. I think the Australians should mind their own business; that's neither here nor there. If you didn't squeal my name to the police, somebody else did. I'm going to find that person - not to burn down his house - to talk to him calmly and rationally: to put these absurd suspicions to rest. Everybody deserves to hear the truth, especially the people you love. I was kicked out not because of my reputation or the looks you were getting in town. It wasn't because you thought I killed that girl. It was because I hurt you. I hurt you a long time ago and I've always been too selfish to realize it. I expected you to understand - even though I never properly explained myself. It had nothing to do with you. You were perfect. I loved you. I was afraid of being a father. You know my childhood - or perceived lack thereof. I was insecure. I was scared to death. I panicked. I didn't talk to anybody about it because I was ashamed. I thought that, if you knew, you would despise me for it. You were always so strong and fearless. I envied you. When your family came and asked me what was going on, I lied. I acted as if I didn't care about you anymore: as if I had lost interest. Nothing could've been further from the truth. I was an idiot. I was such an idiot. I'm sorry for that. I'm so sorry for everything. I won't trouble you anymore. Even if you and your friend want to move in together, I won't trouble you. File divorce papers in the morning. You can keep the house - and the sofa bed - and the mattress - and the comforter - and the dishwasher. You can even keep the cook - and the boy.

– ACT II, line 356

FLETCHER: It's true.

ALICE: The poor girl was stabbed sixty-two times. Can you believe it?

LESBIAN: I'm upset the suspect is from New Zealand. That doesn't reflect well on me.

LUKE: We Aussies are supposed to be the criminals.

FLETCHER: Don't forget that Norfolk Island used to be a penal colony not just once but twice.

MS. JACKSON: Some still seem to think it is.

ALICE: There hasn't been a murder here in one hundred and fifty years. Did the last one take place when the prisons were still around?

MS. JACKSON: The last person to be murdered on Norfolk was a prisoner in the nineteenth century, shortly before the prisons were removed.

FLETCHER: Who needs prisons when you're oblivious to crime?

MS. JACKSON: It was before either the Bounty or the Pitcairner families arrived.

GREY GOOSE: I wish I could say the same thing.

ALICE: What's going on?

GREY GOOSE: Ask your landlady. She thinks she knows everything.

MS. JACKSON: What have you done?

GREY GOOSE: You first. Did you or did you not approach the Australian police with your unjustified suspicions that I might have committed the first murder this island has seen in over one hundred and fifty years? Did you not, in fact, tell them I was capable of committing such a crime? Are you not the reason why I was named a person of interest? Answer me.

MS. JACKSON: Never.

– ACT I, lines 1091-1100

FLETCHER: (to ALICE) You first.

ALICE: I understand you had jury duty today.

FLETCHER: I did.

ALICE: How was it?

FLETCHER: Dreadful. I was almost instantly excused by the Australian prosecutor.

LUKE: Sorry, mate.

FLETCHER: The Kiwi defense lawyer didn't even stand a chance. I've never been so insulted.

ALICE: Why didn't he want you?

FLETCHER: He didn't have to state a reason. It's all the more embarrassing since I seem to be the only man on this island who didn't know the victim.

MS. JACKSON: Don't start that again.

– ACT I, lines 73-82

LESBIAN: I can put this one back. No one can accuse me of stealing it. I just borrowed it to show that some things in life are more important than others. Whom am I kidding? I took it to get into my landlady's panties. I'm a terrible human being. There have been worse than me - like the person who stabbed that poor girl sixty-two times: the first murderer this island has had to fear in more than one hundred and fifty years. Both suspect and victim were like me: alien to this place. Why did we come? What did we hope to find? Peace? We scared her off. Happiness? Satisfaction? Understanding? Why here? Why do we trespass on other people's land? It stands in our way - but of what? There's nothing beyond what's right in front of us at any given time. There's no way of knowing that unless you trespass. All that one can hope to do is make as little damage as possible along the way. We are all criminals, whether we like it or not. Though some of us are big and some of us small, we are all cut from the same dough. That's not the easiest thing to believe when one man robs or kills another man. What was my crime? Why am I punished? Why am I the only one who's alone? Or is it just my imagination? Are there others out there who can see me? Who know me? Who can feel my pain? If there are, I salute you. I would kiss you if I could. I can't, so I just say, 'Thank you.'

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.
