Far, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is weighing the notion of strengthening his formidable Fiction Corpus with some really funny bedtime stories; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't doubt the practicality of honoring English as a worldwide standard. I don't regard highly the uninspiring design by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Beefing up one's finesse for a language isn't like bringing about a more comfortable bed. A language - a spoken tongue - isn't just a tool that you can learn to manipulate with a greater amount of precision. A common tongue cannot be dissected from the professed knowledge 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.

To make a student recite English is to strip him of its cultural context. A good instructor has to find a way to introduce it; the insightful student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe a language based on a specific corpus, a body of written language of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus may include anything from a book about literature to an entire set of drama plays. I burned many candles laboring on my "awe-inspiring" Fiction Corpus in order to form a distinct genre 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 fashioned a million words and I have dissected them, reshaping them - not merely to teach an American tongue but to be an advocate for the human soul, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Racism 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

On Monday, I arrived in Europe. By Wednesday I had bought a car. By Friday I had met the woman who a few months later would end up having travelling 6,000 miles across Europe with me.

Though I felt fully formed as a writer, and had been trained in visual language, it was my first time with a professional camera in my hands. I was just learning the ins and outs and had come to Europe to find as diverse a selection of subject matter as possible, preferably something that fit my aesthetic devotion to promoting body acceptance. Enter Margo.

Though I was born in Europe, I had been brought up from a young age in America, living in states as diverse as Nebraska, Ohio and Connecticut. I was taught American values and saw reality from an American perspective. She was born and raised in a village in Poland. She went to work in the nearest town. The nearest city seemed like the center of the world. The American perspective was not something she was ever planning to see.

Margo and I spent over 40 days on the road. We started out as basically strangers, but in those 40 days we started listening to each other. We started teaching ourselves how to cooperate. Our journey across Europe may have ended, but our journey towards each other continues. No amount of fear, anger, sadness, disgust or anticipation can stop hope. Slowly but surely, we're learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

One of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

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 Far

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 far in some kind of way.

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

Usage of Far 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.

"We survived how many regimes? Countless regimes from either side: we did it by sticking to our farms, Jesus, by keeping our heads up at the plough, by never letting go. That's how we survived. That's how the Old Republic lived on: in the hearts and minds of ploughmen. When you're in the hills, Jesus, men still use horses: machines would tip over. But those men are small farmers, Jesus - not big. Now what's happening? The climate's changed? All of a sudden, we can make it big on the world market? Sure, but let's not kill a way of life. Let's keep the good. You think these people around here want to be my friends? My neighbors? No: of course not! But: back in the day, we had business with each other: that's what makes for a community. And now what? There's no business: who could give a rat's ass what you do or who you are?

Verse 303 from the chapter called Adolescence

I know the lure of success. I feel the pressures of domination. That farmer who sows rye in every field is not a victim. Nor is he some kind of scab. He is a player in a game with no teams, and he deserves no one's pity or awe or respect any more than the rest of us do. Your father always had to win. He would go and cry if he lost - every time. Once, your great-grandfather held a race for the boys and girls. Jesus was distracted for some reason; he missed the starting gun. His first reaction, unfortunately, was to complain. Realizing that the race had already started and wasn't going to be stopped, Jesus went for it. He went as fast as a young boy could, just so he wouldn't have to bear the shame of coming in dead last. He was beaten by a girl. She received first prize and Jesus received second. He was infuriated. Second prize was obviously inferior - too inferior. First prize was an electronic game system. Second prize was a fancy pencil sharpener. Jesus went and cried, not realizing that the prizes were personal: they were designated. Nor did he realize that the girl's family was rich, and his family was, in comparison, very poor.

Verse 150 from the chapter called Childhood

"That's a myth," she said. "Invented by farmers living in a far-away greenhouse on Mars. They saw lighting in the dust clouds and called it Zeus, a name they took from ancient books of mythology, a name which means absolutely nothing, certainly not the all-powerful, all-knowing force that somehow exists all across the planet. Why are you so interested?"

Verse 932 from the chapter called Bohemia

The Commandant was white-haired, with big hands, an obtrusive lower lip, and a squashed nose. On his left hand, his index finger was missing. He was a real farmer, I thought.

Usage of Far 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.

The other photograph was much older; it was black and white. It was the picture of a young and handsome boy in a bathing suit; there was a horizon in the background; there was water and faraway people on a beach. The boy was handsome and sturdy; on his face, a proud expression. He was smiling, but not exuberantly: proudly he was smiling.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 3, Clauses 1-4

In truth, he was nervous, but for another reason: not that he'd find himself at a loss for words or action, but that he would be unable to find that woman again. There was only a small chance in hell that he would ever see her, but that's why he felt he must return and keep returning to that awful place: that fantastic middle of night, inside the Bois de Boulogne: that gorgeously engorging thruway: that clogged artery, that alleyway of the daisy queen - beautiful, flowery queen - until he found his own.

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.

"50 seconds in the first half, a good pace here at the mile and a half classic as we turn into the back stretch. Bust by Anonymous out front, Alfalfa Molina right there as Collegiate and Jalopy fall back, replaced by Farmer's Market and Unkempt Woman. Why the Long Face coming up on the outside, followed by Clutch Bag whose jockey seems to be riding by the seat of his pants. Farmer's Market slips ahead. He's now in third. Why the Long Face pushes on. Bust by Anonymous is in first followed by Alfalfa Molina, a length and a half separates them from the pack.

– from “A Horse Named Clutch Bag,” an inspiring story featuring a man with a mean mother

Ferrari's pride was hurt. A flautist was not as prestigious as a trumpeter. At least it kept him close to the condottiero. It seemed like a safe place to be. Practicing music was better than the usual military drills. Ferrari worked while everybody else danced, but his hands were kept cool and clean. Ferrari threw himself into his new profession. He mastered the pipe and tabor, the fiffaro, and the eight-holed flaut.

– from “Italy Sucks and Has Sucked For A Long Time,” an adventure story set in Renaissance Italy for all the difference it makes

"And they're off. Collegiate takes the early lead. It looks like the girth has come off Clutch Bag. I don't know how that jockey is holding on. Jalopy takes the inside, followed by Chesspiece as they make their way toward the first turn. Farmer's Market picks up speed while Bust by Anonymous takes the outside. Why the Long Face maneuvers past Hourglass with Alfalfa Molina in the mix.

"The forest gets cold. They were huddling in the bushes."

"I doubt it. If anybody had seen anything, they would have stopped. It was a steady stream of traffic."

"They were tourists."

"That's what it felt like: a safari."

"Last year?"

"Maybe."

"Cops were around."

"They weren't raiding then, were they?"

"How would I know?"

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring a man who falls asleep

Bo caressed the back of Tae's head. She whispered, "I know." She gazed at the paddies they had made. The hills stretched into the distance like the breasts of sleeping giants. To her, they represented the men who perished under her care. They were the men who judged her for it. They were the men who sent her to this land, so far removed in time and space from everything she had ever known.

Usage of Far 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.

MS. JACKSON: I've been very happy with your service. You've become absolutely indispensable to this venture. Should you choose to continue with me far into the future, I would be most grateful. I already consider you a part of the family. If you should ever have the desire and the opportunity and the willingness to formalize that relationship - sacramentally speaking - I mean that in the fullest sense of the term - even if that requires a certain individual to confirm himself into the Catholic faith - I want you to know that you would enjoy my full support. I mean, namely, that, if one should be so lucky to have you for - I mean, if I should be so lucky to have - that is, I suspect you would find me a better mother-in-law than you have an employer. It's not that I pry. I've realized that - I'm not completely off the mark, am I?

KOKOMO: No. I simply never imagined I was so-

MS. JACKSON: Clearly it took me a while to - anyway: that's that.

KOKOMO: Thank you.

MS. JACKSON: It's incredible how much you remind me of me when I was your age. I too was filled with confidence. My family recognized my strength and valued it. I consider it my duty to strengthen others. May I confide in you?

KOKOMO: Yes.

MS. JACKSON: What I want to tell you isn't easy for me to describe. You have a right to know. I became pregnant with Fletcher before I was married. It took pressure, if not outright coercion, before Grey Goose finally agreed to wed - even though he had always talked about it as if it were a sure thing. I've never understood why it had to be like that, but I feel it's been at the root of most of the problems we've had. I just wanted you to know so that you could be careful.

KOKOMO: Thank you. I can't imagine how hard it must have been.

MS. JACKSON: Indeed. You see how long the pain can last. Be wary, child. Do not commit the same mistake I did.

KOKOMO: I won't.

– ACT II, lines 14-23

GREY GOOSE: That's not what I want to hear.

KOKOMO: I'll do my best.

GREY GOOSE: You're a fine girl, Kokomo. Nobody can know about this: not Fletch, not the guests, and certainly not my wife.

KOKOMO: I get it.

GREY GOOSE: Go to my farmhouse. Wait for me there. I'll follow.

– ACT I, lines 246-250

ALICE: Did somebody die?

FLETCHER: Don't ask.

ALICE: Yes.

FLETCHER: Even if your husband had died?

ALICE: It would.

FLETCHER: I've been wanting to confess this for so long. The island makes it hard. Who would have understood me if I had spoken? My mother? I pay my penance every time I hear her cry. She has no idea what part I played in that fire. I can't help feeling that, if I had stopped it, this family would never have had the problems it's had. Nobody died in that fire except for me. It was my own soul burning. As far as the house is concerned, restitution's been made. As for me, who would not find my weakness and ignore it? for the sake of convenience if not for shame. Who would restore my strength from the ashes?

ALICE: Let it be me. I will restore you.

FLETCHER: This is why I've been pursuing you. I knew you'd never give in to me. I saw your strength the moment you arrived: its grace: its beauty. I fell in love with it. I desired it - not for myself, but for its ability to release me from this guilt.

ALICE: Let me release you, Fletcher Christian. I will make you whole again.

FLETCHER: You will forgive me my crime?

– ACT II, lines 184-193

ALICE: Interesting.

KOKOMO: Hardly.

ALICE: Why did he leave?

KOKOMO: He was looking for a warmer climate.

ALICE: That makes sense.

KOKOMO: Instead he found my mother. She is a Catholic. He is nothing. She tried to beat it into him. He started beating back. It got bloody. I had never fit well into the tribal network. It was easy for me to leave. Nevertheless, I'd give anything to go back and farm my own land.

– ACT I, lines 840-845

FLETCHER: What do you know about it, pig farmer?

GREY GOOSE: Raising hogs teaches respect for discipline. I know what you've been doing. You've been putting the moves on Luke's wife: shame on you.

FLETCHER: There's a good explanation for that.

GREY GOOSE: All you've learned around here is how to chase girls.

FLETCHER: As if you never chased.

GREY GOOSE: I stopped when I found one I wanted: a woman who loved me back. You're too stupid to do that, aren't you?

MS. JACKSON: Grey Goose.

GREY GOOSE: She loves you, you idiot.

MS. JACKSON: Husband.

GREY GOOSE: What?

Usage of Far 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 wondered if she were right. Was it possible for there to be a difference between us? Were our generations so far apart? Were we not experiencing the same systems? Socialism, communism, capitalism, Christianity - were they not as powerful now as they ever were? Perhaps the influence was being overshadowed - by what? Our technologies were trite; our movements, nonexistent. What was my generation doing? Treading water? I took a puff of marijuana. It didn't matter. It was getting late.

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that may ease one's nerves depending on your outlook

The giant hill of stupidity was located five miles south of downtown East Farmville. Making it 5.1 miles from the new East Farmville post office. It was created under the local dictatorship of postmaster Steve the Second. Nobody blamed him personally for it. At least not in front of his face. Not that everybody lost on the deal. Just the rural carriers as usual.

– from “Wrong Again,” a success story that represents the real lives of certain people, though the details are fictional

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

In the end the professor's wife settled her wrongful death suit out of court. She moved out of East Farmville and the busted mailbox she had propped up in memory of her dead husband became another spider hole. Another clogged paper cemetery which Mark and the other substitutes kept cramming junk mail into because they didn't want to bring it back to the office. Life moved on. Somebody bought the house. They put up a new box. Fresh mail started coming in. Judging by the amount of Free Matter for the Blind, Mark hoped he wouldn't be seeing any more amateur photographers anytime soon.

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

Grendel tried not to think about the hair. It didn't work. She kept pulling down her pants and looking at it. She thought about plucking it. She went so far as to stretch it out as far as it would go. It was very long.

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
