Optimising corresponding cunjuction conjecture opportunity enhancement- Dragon Dowsing

The Real Deal

I had painted the landscape with the actual land of the place I was depicting, at this place , late Spring, with the last class, from across the river, with the program of the Organization, named after a Wooden Sail Boat. that did not have it's annual Revival this Year.

I returned to this place, wanting to do it again, on a larger scale, as part of an Event , in support of the Organizations land based Education Programs there.
My  Wife and Son, have traditionally been volunteers serving with Me and Education at the Annual Revival,
Making Art under the Tide line discovery tent.
This Year-  We were here,  Me, My Wife assisting the making of the "festival favorite"
 " Art on a stick"
"It is Mobile! Make it!, and take it!' with you!",under a pop-up, next to the Pavilion, acting as a stage, that replaced the education center, My Son and I had painted a Mural in,before being flooded,after the hurricane, a number of years back.
Late Summer is not the Time of Year that I am familiar with the Mud Flats of Esopus Meadows.
Hot and Humid, Low Tide, the water surface choked with a net of invasive Water chestnuts introduced over a hundred years ago.
My Son chose to stay in the air conditioning,in the Car, in the parking lot, charging and interfacing with his I-Phone.
I had woken him up early that day, made him wait in a long line, next to a surviving World Trade Center Path Train, to buy tickets, for a deck tour of The Worlds Largest  Viking Ship sailing in modern times!
It had crossed the Atlantic and some how ends up docked outside of the Museum, that has the Boat Barn and winter port of the Wooden Sloop that shares it's name with the Environmental Organization that has the Educational Programs at the location, before the Hurricane,and the floods, many, many tides ago......  now Painting with it's Sediment.

I was surprised by the fortunate parking spots My Wife had acquired at the Viking Boat on the Rondout, and at Esopus Meadows.
There were a lot of volunteers set up, that I was unfamiliar with.
I got the opportunity to buy the 2016 " Hammers and Hands, Float the Boat" T-shirt, in support of the Sloop.
I found that algae mats are fantastic applicators of surface film ,as well as reservoirs of very fine sediment with a faint hint of chlorophyll pigmentation.
The thing I am not so certain about is adhesion.
We were not obliged to stick around at the event,beyond the Time we had volunteered for.
I saw that Roger the Jester was going to perform, and I appealed to My Son, that we hang around to see him before we leave; as we annually see him at Hudson River Revival.
His Mother, My wife, found that the Car would not start, We got a jump from  the car parked next to us, who was the Volunteer  I bought the T- shirt from.
My Wife drives  our Son to a friends House to spend the night and returns to pick Me Up, afraid to turn off the Car.
She pulls up and I jump in after witnessing a Rainbow upstage the showcased performer, Former Captain, Current- Roger the Jester broke with his juggling Mime with the Kids to point it out, take out His I- phone and take it's picture.
reflecting in the water, at about the spot, I let My Dad's Ashes Drift ,away , back a few Years ago.

The Dragon Boat I made,  photographed by My Wife, with her phone,  from the Dining Room Table, sent to My Son, upstairs in his room, on his phone who added the copy right water mark.

In the Time before Digital Photos and I-phones.
The wood was Cedar cut from shingles that I used as backing for Photographic prints of paintings I had made of Gods and Goddesses on one side and a Bryan Perrin Studio Pagan Product Division Label glued on the other ,Altar Cards for Polytheist apartment dwellers.

The Materials are Sacred Scrap made Whole and Holy- a Vessel!
No Kit!   No Plans! just the ideas and drawings found in a treasured Old Book.
I learn with Making.
I seek to understand better with creating.
I find the attention and effort exercised in the crafting of objects to be a relationship with  other Spirits.
The forms, the shapes of thought, genius of design are communicated through the Buried remains of Old Boats--- as much,or more---- than the Words, of Sagas.
Encoded in the structure, the Function, The Living Body.
Transit and Transition
Who says the dead no longer speak to us?

Cradle for My Son
Made on the Other side of Jersey City maybe seven years later.
I responded to the anticipated birth of a child by putting wood in the shower.
I let the P O box in the Old Jersey City Post office- home of Bryan Perrin Studio, Bryan Perrin Studio Pagan product Division,Metro Druid Nuz, Green Man Grove ADF, and the last home of the cancelled Druids' Progress expire.

the journey , the voyage, the passage , environmental sensitivity-empathy- traveling awareness
The rocking and swaying, the sense of directed movement.

Soul Holder

There seems to be a fundamental need for the expression of security and containment
Order and Symmetry, Protective and shielding, worthy of trust.
Some things you  grow out of, some things you don't.
My Son , has his learners Drivers Permit in the Mail, and I got to hear the first speech, in English, of the Captain of the Draken- Harld Harfarge, the North Atlantic Crossing and the embarrassing surprise question about Sailing in the Great Lakes.
The Coast Guard Fined the Captain and require Him to have a expensive pilot on board to navigate Our Waters.

Dragon in Dock

mobility and metamorphosis, change and range, serpentine and Dragon like- Strange
What to Make of it?
What to hold on to , what to cast off?

Cardinal Virtues- tripartate division , outsider omission, trifunctional hypothesis of social class, tripartate definition of knowledge , the fourth estate

Almost finished painting of the four cardinal Virtues

Concepts of 
The "State", Estate, Order are based upon Social Realities of inheritance- what is passed on- a continuation.
Body- Soul-Spirit
Belief-Truth-Justification ,  Plato's"Knowledge". 
  Rational-Spirited -Appetittive , Plato's Tripartite social divisions
Sovereignty - Military -Productive
Three of the Virtues are representative "Favorites" of one of the Three Groups, with the Fourth equally Neutral.     Justice wears the Crown.
The basis of value judgement,,,,,,,,,,,,thumbs up, or down, authority of , fair or foul?

The Three estates of the realm,
Oratores - those who pray -  Clergy
Bellatores - those who fight -  Nobility
Laboratores - those that work -  Commoners

Lords Spiritual
Lords Temporal
The Commons



The notion of the border , the body, the realm is not only one of ownership, but descriptive of its function, its cycles and workings, Trade groupings,structures,ways of life.
More than descriptive physical Objects.
The Social opportunity Manipulation of Class System
is how the Ruling Order has imposed Tax .
A Traditional Tri-functional  way of assessing the worth and value of something for Monarchs.

Three rival castes brought together by a unifying Lateral symmetry!
The Stuff of Legends!
The necessity of Governance!
The Mythic Origin of Hierarchy !
Justice - Judgement- fairness from above- Rule and Right.
Not  a part of the Body, but directing it,
whispering in left and right ears.......

What about the Homeless? The Slaves? The Out laws? The Nobodies?
Societies Unseen ,Excluded Class ? Upward mobility?
Flamen - Brahman - Druid - Priest the referees of competitive warrior aristocracy of  ancient regimes.
The age of Republics is one of urbanization, Empire, The Cardinal Virtues, expanded with the Theological Virtues are promoted in Religion and Lodges.
Deism , Common Sense, Society of the Jacobins, friends of Freedom and Equality.
Thermidorian reaction.
They say past behavior is the best indicator for future behavior,
Trying to live a Virtuous Life.

 One of My contributions to the collective volunteer Newsletter" Metro-Druid Nuz", 
The fairly regular publication of Green Man Grove ADF in the early Nineties,
My Druid Priestly point of reference is centered primarily on the time spent participating in Seasonal Group Ritual.
The planning and facilitating of worship service - group are not to take priority over the giving of Our attention to.......... The Real Deal.

It is a Mistake to think that Administration and policy making are Spiritual goals for everyone.
It may be wrong to encourage, the Idea that Art and Religion are about Self Expression.
Self Identity and ego get in the way of things, like interpersonal gnosis,or trans-dimensional osmosis.
We are the creators of Our Contributions.
Our Care and attention must be focused on intent, arrangement and composition.
We are bundling words, Making associations,putting it out there.     Offerings
Feeling as though others must consume, and respond, as you direct them to,  is not the way;
 Sorry to those that think it's their calling, or worse, their duty.
The Limitations of Sacred Time and Space restriction is what provides definition of what is, and is not.
Our opinions,comments,have nothing to do with it.
"It", being the actual content of Our contribution to the collective Dream-Prayer-Wish.
" It" not seeking the validation of numbers to make change, find mass acceptance,or gain popular support.
" It" has a select audience, free to accept or reject or ignore "It".
"It" is not comfort in conformity or constructive criticism, communication compromise.
Comparing the concepts of the  Crown and the crudity of common a Cosmic context.
Archived computer communication does not reflect the "best" of our thoughtful and passionate relationship with..............The Real Deal.

reclusive exclusive

" Law is the science which inoculates the difference between right and wrong,
which enables us to assert the one and to prevent, punish,or redress the other;
a science that employs in its theory the noblest faculties of the soul;
and exerts in its practice the cardinal virtues of the heart;
which is universal in its  use and extent,
and accommodated to each individual but adapted to the whole community."

The Right Honorable Louis "honest" Perrin, .....I  think.

A search engine self search took me to a digitized copy,
 of the Saturday,January seventh, nineteen o five edition of,
The Irish Law Times and Solicitors' Journal.
contained within the name Sir Bryan Perrin
Mark Perrin, the eldest son of Louis Perrin
"had never married and his Title and Family Property devolved
 upon his next Brother now Sir Bryan Perrin."

obituaries.......... and the internet, the Lorentz Force and telepathy
Lie'nard - Wiechert potentials, and  Time travel?
Strange relationships.................I think.
What about the cardinal virtues of My Heart- the faculties of My Soul?
