Chapter XI – A British Spectacle

Vasa and Ypres

It is not every day that one is faced with the sight of one’s uncle reaching for sustenance in the mouth of one’s close friend. There is an unstated rule in these matters. Uncles’ tongues should not be seen in public, let alone fraternising with other tongues.

When Lanky Ella revealed her conundrum at Hatchards booksellers, and confided that she was a participant in a kiss with tongue every half an hour, with a grope in close pursuit, the Vasa mind was taken aback. It was as if a close relative had announced that they were planning to wear sweat wear at the Royal Opera House premier of Don Giovanni. Eyebrows were raised. Sighs were released. A change of telephone number was envisaged. Yet, in the end, there was a shared sense of confidence that all would be well. That somehow, against all odds, we would pull through.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
