"Do What You Will": May Day Greetings from Dr. Rabelais

"All their life was regulated not by laws, statutes, or rules, but according to their free will and pleasure. They rose from bed when they pleased, and drank, ate, worked, and slept when the fancy seized them."
Francois Rabelais, Gargantua and Pantagruel, Book 1, Chapter 57.

"The reader may ask himself if this is not cruelty and injustice of a kind so terrible that it beggars the imagination, and whether these poor people would not fare far better if they were entrusted to the devils in Hell than they do at the hands of the devils of the New World who masquerade as Christians."
----Bartolome de Las Casas, A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies.

In a Moment I Always Loved Lena and Forgot in Taxonomy

             Nostalgia, a deathless wine interred cold,
         tames warm eyes drunk on Sun-ripened scent.

                             She translated
                              sense to love,
                             like an inkblot
                               of idle pen                     
                             time expands
                              without end

For the Nazarenes

"The time has come for me to say for the benefit of all how I discovered beyond any doubt that the stories of the Galileans are the inventions of deceivers and tricksters."---Julian the Apostate, Against the Galileans.

Enough to move an Infidel's heart(galloping like a Morisco's). Within the secured paradise of del Prado it remains an experience.

"Look! The sun coming through the clouds---like God emptying His bedpan on the world."---Buchner, Woyzeck, Scene XVI.
