February is the month of the Dodo's birth, or more properly, its unveiling, its debut. We enter our fourth year together, and it is a good time to renew our vows: Of course I still love you. Hurry and join me in loving all these things, all this world of variety and interest- spice and sugar are everywhere!
To clarify further, I attended a recent pipe organ concert (I collect them, you know) and the organist, Cameron Carpenter, was speaking to the audience about Bach's passacaglia. He explained that it contained everything, like *Mandelbrot; a mathematics thing that everyone loves to love but remains arcane to me as a metaphor; but the point that was clear to me was that he meant everything in the Universe and he very carefully delineated what all he meant by everything. I mean to say to you here and now that you mean everything to me, and I mean that you mean everything in the universe.
* However, ask me anything you like about almond bread and we may converse fluently!
