John Dunn original writing

The mother of fate on Dr John Dunn.

Ananke by Gilbert Bayes

Conundrum

And why is Eros tempted by evil?

Ananke, symbol of undifferentiated Oneness, equilibrium, the endless repeating cycle and entropic death, is Evil’s closest ally.


Eve was drawn to the Serpent.

The champion of violation is Eros, but why? Why is Love so drawn to Evil?

Why is the urge to violate the daughters of Ananke so irresistible to Eros, the son of Love?

It is because the urge to create is the defining aspect of man, just as it is the defining aspect of Love, the first Creator.

Eros is driven to break the daughters of Ananke and end the cycle.

Man is driven to penetrate the still darkness of the cave and paint of the walls.

Your soul will never be known entirely;
But for Eros, you would never be known at all.
All I can hope is to enter
And paint my dreams on your wall.
Man is driven to cross the water and penetrate new continents.
I looked over the still dark waters and saw you there,
Eternal, wild, and infinite.
Is creativity, that is violation, encouraged by Love
An angel occupied your body and spoke to me… touched me… and drew me towards the Divinity.

An on-going passsage-by-passage reading of Roy Campbell’s epic poem of the Spanish Civil War. He is an exultant nationalist and celebrates not only feats of arms but achievements of organisation, making live poetry out of the economics and agriculture of Franco's Spain.

Just a thought: The non-productive ways in which an individual might seek to acquire or increase his holding of wealth, whether by buying and selling or lending and borrowing, were lumped together by the Church as avarice, or greed, one of the seven deadly sins.

I will follow these routes and others by map and by cycling and motorcycling along the roads to unearth the archaeology of this ancient Gough map and the later accretions that followed in its path.

Gentle motorcycle touring on a Royal Enfield Classic 500.

The historical, quirky and unusual features of the English countryside seen from the saddle are captured on video.

Join me as I follow maps, park up and take a look around.

"...I love riding these quiet country lanes - the type of road on which this Royal Enfield excels, with its low revving, low compression, long stroke engine just chugging away, able to pull even the lowest speeds on this type of road in its highest gear. It all makes for a very satisfying way to travel around when seeking out the historic, the unusual and the quirky points of interest from the English landscape."
