Maggie and all of Lila Squad.

Thanks is all I can say to your "tour de force" of Thu.27 Aug. that
ended thus:

At first I had a few objections to stones and intellect, but the more
I read the more my small misgivings faded into insignificance and
finally I just sat there with moist eyes. There are days when the
discussion seems hopeless and it looks as if we are moving away from
whatever goal we have, but then there come "days like this" (as
Van Morrison sings) with posts like Maggie's and Platt's.

After one year, are we approaching some sort of fusion? Maggie
speaks of sleepless hours pondering questions, during my cold spell
I had a dream about a meeting of the Lila Squad - dreamlike
as dreams are, but it looked like a Security Council meeting at the
UN; a spotlighted floor with an assembly of figures and some vast
galleries receding upwards into darkness filled with thousands of
people. Diana was speaking from a lectern when a figure entered on a
motorcycle spreading choking exhaust fumes and waving papers -
Magnus Berg! Diana looked furious and I thought: This will be
interesting to watch. Those were the only two people I "saw" before
it all dissolved into feverish versions of personal issues.

A real world meeting could probably be held at a pub - in one boot at
one table :-) !
