I don't fully appreciate this one as I'm not too sure what it means - all that I do know is that it is profound. But then that is the beauty of the Tanka something to ruminate upon. Happy Sunday Dave
I read about it yesterday! How timely. Many thanks. Having acquainted myself with the news first, I'm able to appreciate the artistic outcome after. :-)Greetings from London.
Know I've missed something. Sounds profound. You've got me thinking of a subject to go with it.Have a good one.Jim
'All Souls one word paper'?...Intriguing; it beats 1,000 words; what could that word be? What could we all agree on? I have several in mind. Compassion?
Thanks AllGuess I've been trying a bit too hard to force unsuitable material. All Souls Oxford have (had)what was reckoned to be the hardest exam in the world. Candidates were given an envelope containing a single word. They were expected to write about it for three hours. Entry eas by invitation only, usually about four a year, of which often only ne got through. Hilaire Belloc was a famous name who failed. There were 3 (4?) orthodox papers as well as the one worder. Only the latter has been scrapped. People used to gather to hear what the word was. "Water" and "bias" were teo examples.
A challenge not for the weak of word.
