Hypomnemata - is treasure

Lonnie invites you to mark an X where you find treasure. We could not decide...

A copybook, a notebook. 
A sort of written permanent relationship between self and self. Memoranda, quotations, fragments of works, examples, actions witness or read, reflections and reasoning heard or have come to mind. A material memory of things read, heard, or thought, thus offering these as an accumulated treasure for rereading and later meditation. Also used as raw material for writing more formal work.


In the Theater World when a garment or hat is built in the costume shop sometimes the best compliment that you can receive is that it looks store-bought-new.

Sometimes these prop items of outdoor hats and great-coats are only seen for 30 seconds in the dark. As the player dashes into the scene and throws off the winter garments the stage lights begin to glow on and the 30 hours of studio work is seen in a pile on the couch.


Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. 
If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. 
The trick is the doing something else.  -Lenny da Vinci

We refer to Leonardo as Lenny, as we refer to Joseph Campbell as Joey - This is not to mean any dis-respect. Quite the opposite. We recognize our honor of them by referring to them as if they were our buddies. That would be heaven.
We secretly work as tho we might be walked in on by one of our heroes.
Pulling a Lenny (not to be confused with Pulling a Duffy)
To pull a Lenny: To think of a great idea or technique, and then not do it.  Since the conceptual creation already exists perfectly in the mind - why muddle it up with an actual physical object?

Fire, Ready, Aim

Words may not be our first language, 
but they are useful when we are all speaking so differently.

Okay, our tribe with indubitably get this, some will have other answers and others will come foreword with perplexing questions.  Nonetheless, (because more is never too much?) the 
time has come to  Fire, Ready, Aim.
Dontcha think?
