On, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal declines to debate the concept of enhancing his lofty Fiction Corpus with a coffee table book describing science fiction awards; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I can't challenge the potential of administering English as humanity's second language. I do reject the unnewsworthy form in which English is presented for study.Pointer

Reinforcing a person's intimacy with a language isn't like creating a more accurate catapult. A language - a common language - is not merely a tool that you can teach yourself to use with a greater amount of precision. A common language can not be riven from the philosophical currents of a recognized nation 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 man recite English is to rob him of its cultural context. A capable instructor has to develop a strategy for introducing it; the insightful student goes out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language on the basis of a particular corpus, a set of written language of various size and consistency. This corpus could contain everything from a book about literature to some real non fiction articles. I watched many nights pass creating my "weighty" Fiction Corpus to form a new class 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 sculpted a million words and I have classified them, reframing them - not merely to teach English vocabulary but to promote the human spirit, and to encourage that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Exploitation 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

Lots of people go on road trips. Not everybody criss-crosses Europe in 46 days. Especially not with a complete stranger.

As an artist, from the beginning of my adult career, my work had been devoted to the problem of body acceptance, a goal that I would later learn was shared by a whole community of people called naturists, a humble portion of which I discovered residing in Poland, a country whose cultural conservatism does not lend itself readily to forward thinking. One of those forward-thinking Polish naturists happened to be 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.

Each man grows up with his own kind of poverty. Even if he's got a warm house and plenty of food and a soft bed and plenty of entertainment, there's always something that a man needs. Sometimes he just needs to be listened to, if only by the birds and the trees, but preferably by another man, even if he's an artist from America who isn't very good at listening. By learning how to listen, we learn how to cooperate. By cooperating, we build a better world. In a better world, there are no devils to abuse us. A better world doesn't lend itself to abuse because a better world is populated by people who have learned how to listen.

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 On

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 on in some kind of way.

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

Usage of On 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.

None of this mattered on Mars. There, on that planet, where anti-trust laws had absolutely no jurisdiction, Cheap Alaskan Air bottles were produced and sold as usual - with face masks - right until the Revolution.

Verse 80 from the chapter called Childhood

In the fourth grade, my grandmother came to visit. She stayed for a long time. She went to church every day of the week. On Sundays, I went with her. My mother went too. There was a beautiful girl who sat in the pew behind us. Her hair was blond: she was beautiful. She was eight years old. I fell in love with her. My mother was terrible. She wouldn't let me go to Communion. "You haven't studied your prayers yet," she said.

Verse 132 from the chapter called Childhood

Jesus's mother was so mad. She found him sitting on her father's front porch, which was narrow, slightly wider than the door itself, and covered on either side. Two short benches on either side faced each other. Jesus was sitting on one of them. He wasn't hiding; he had sat there on purpose so his mother would find him there suddenly and be compelled to sit down in front of him, rather than shout at him from a distance. He wanted her first question to be: "Why did you lock us inside?" It was perfect: just as he planned. In as few words as possible, Jesus explained the injustice done to him by the girl's father and the insult of second prize. Jesus's mother weakened: with less anger, she explained how poor his family was, how they spent everything on keeping him in the United States, and how they couldn't spend money on stupid prizes. The pencil sharpener, whether he liked it or not, was his prize no matter what: even if he had won the race, he still would've gotten it. Now Jesus was mad both for losing the race and for being poor. He was sentenced to his room till evening.

Verse 152 from the chapter called Childhood

About five hundred years before I was born, man set foot on Mars. He brought materials with which to build, tools with which to dig, a furnace to keep warm, fuel to burn, and food to eat. He walked, like most men, on his own two feet. He brought instruments with which to study, cereal to grow, and batteries to keep his various electric motors moving. He brought radio transmitters and television. He brought a suit, and a carpet. He brought drugs, soap, and water. Above all, and most of all, he brought with him air.

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.

I will say that Macy pretended to be thoroughly impressed, and I daresay, I think my performance may have had a significant effect on him; in fact, it may have been the inspiration for much of what transpired a few days after we closed the show, during our first real encounter together in a long time.

I am still on this blasted train. - Jo

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 10, Exercising Chastity, Paragraph 5

Let me describe to you the situation. We were sitting on the open terrace, enjoying the mild weather; I still had my tea and Mother offered me the last of the cheesecake, which I promptly accepted. I knew she had spoken to Indiana, and I also knew she hadn't spoken to you - but, all the same, I asked her if she had (in order to avoid the same question). She said that she hadn't, but that she had spoken to Indiana. "Oh, what did she say?" I asked, ever so disingenuously, stuffing the first bit of cheesecake into my mouth.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 3, A Man's Charm, Paragraph 1

I caught Luke at the corner of the street, he wearing his red anorak and bowler hat; so silly: the rain was collecting in the rim, dumping on his shoulders at every twist of the head; he looked like a leaking fire hydrant. But he hardly recognized me staring out of the cab. After I finally ventured out into the rain, I yelled at him: "You have a hood on that thing, why don't you use it?" But he said it wasn't big enough for the hat. I didn't ask for an explanation. And since Luke quickly took notice of my hair, I wasted no time asking him if I could shower at his place. When you're alone with Luke, it's best to be brief. As it turned out, he was on his way to a meeting. He wasn't planning on going back to his dormitory until right before Nike's party. I mentioned how fortuitous our meeting was, and he, being very conscious of fate, was obliged to change his plans. Giving up his key, Luke said that he would meet me in his room, and that he would be, at the very most, an hour.

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 woman kicked. She tried to break free. Luka wouldn't let go. He got the fingers back inside. It was so warm. He thought, "Yes." He took the fingers out. He tugged the woman's wimple. He stuffed a bit of it into her mouth. He held it. He yanked on the veil. The crown came tumbling off. He placed the end of the black fabric on the woman's mouth. He wrapped the whole thing around. The other end was still pinned to the crown. The under-veil got into his face.

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.

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 was taken aback.

FLETCHER: By whom?

ALICE: I was hit on by the nearest policemen I could find. I had just been mugged and middle-aged married policemen decided to hit on me.

FLETCHER: What did they say?

ALICE: They said I was too cute to be mugged. That's what they said.

FLETCHER: They weren't lying.

ALICE: I was so disappointed. They didn't want to help me. They didn't do anything except hit on me.

LESBIAN: They were married.

MS. JACKSON: And bored.

FLETCHER: What was the mugging like?

– ACT I, lines 147-156

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.

FLETCHER: I didn't really care for him.

GREY GOOSE: Tom the anesthesiologist?

KOKOMO: He was funny.

GREY GOOSE: Douglas the airline pilot?

GREY GOOSE: Joe the Gynecologist?

GREY GOOSE: What about the oral and maxillofacial surgeon? The computer information systems manager? You were nothing before me. I made you.

FLETCHER: Kokomo will have to wear a burqa for the rest of her life around here. This was a Sunday operation before he came and screwed it all up. Do you know why you kept getting looks in town? It wasn't what he did; it was what he said. He had everybody on Norfolk thinking you had hired the best piece of faffy this side of Hawai'i. Some of them thought that you were in on it - that you were behind it all.

GREY GOOSE: This is some kind of gratitude.

I had to go. The attack on Barack was the last straw. The news claimed all the attacks were coming from one bad boxing club. It couldn't have been true. I was seeing skinheads on every street corner.

I had to borrow a small furnace and forage for wood on my own. I was happy. I was safe.

They fell asleep. The Amazon found out. He went crazy. He warned them that Orbitz was capable of anything. He had a thousand year head start. He was the richest man in the universe.

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.
