A rendezvous for poets who find, in poetry, a balance of forces; a conjunction of opposites; a mean between extremes.
Not to take any of this with excess seriousness, Henry. But as a card-carrying Mason, I can tell you that we (F&AM) would sure appreciate it if you'd refrain from calling your fellow Plumbliners "Masons" in the future. Probably be better for you guys, too, to avoid giving a wrong impression. Thanks!Buck Downs
Will bear that in mind, Buck. Thanks for the "watch your head". I know you fellows are hell with a brick.I was looking at your book ("Marijuana Soft Drink") just last night! It is on my desk! Hope that keeps me on your good side, for a spell.
I don't think anyone owns the word "mason." Like most nouns, it has a cluster of literal meanings that give rise to metaphorical uses of various kinds. My objection to Henry's usage would be that a plumbline, while useful in masonry, is a tool of more general use as well. Or are we talking about Freemasonry here?
I think we're due for a post on that subject from you, Giuseppe.
