Words for Emzy

Open letter to MZVZ, Esquire of Delusion, Illusion, Confusion; Ranter, Slanter, Disenchanter Rubber of Royal Elbows, of whom one wonders just what it is he knows.

FYI – There is a great English author of past days that your (all too frequent) musings remind me of. Here is a paragraph from one of his best-known works:

“Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were, or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have had appeared to them to be otherwise.” – L. Carroll in “Alice in Wonderland.”

I see your style so clearly in this. Perhaps he is one of your favorites, too?

Just to be completely clear regarding this little exercise, think NON-SENSE! However, MZVZ, you are a master of this technique, so perhaps I err in emphasizing that point. Apologies, if so.

California needs you so. Fly, sir, fly. Please!
