Here is the exploration of the dark, dank caverns of existence.Here the bouquet of feminine beauty bedazzles the eye. Here the potpourri of human emotions swirl in tornadic fury. Here the king and the beast lurking within man is revealed. Here prim and proper ladies shed all vestiges of delicate decency. Here priests become scoundrels and villains hear confessions. Here is death conceived and the living live as if death were dead. Here fools dance blindfolded on a tightrope of barbed wire. Here joy is not only in the omega of the destination, but the alpha and beta and gamma of the journey. Here, between the sheets of paper that embody a book, is all this and more.
