Not only is this clearly established as a grieving practice in Viron (see, for example, Orpine's funeral); it is a well established historically as a practice in the "real" world. And, as Nutria so succintly put it, "I don't think this skilled auger tried to kill himself and failed." " Iím perfectly willing to entertain the possibility that youíre right, and my post Gen-X hyper ironic brain simply took the more negative, and thence more "dramatic" of two possibilities. Iím extremely curious as to your interpretation of Remoraís rejected wedding passage, however. My own is less than logical and complete, but it seems to me that that "shepherd" stands for Silk while "hyacinth" stand for, well, Hyacinth. Also, when we meet Silk again for the first time, I believe his wounds are grievous enough to be fatal without some interjection. Would Silk have patched himself up without a will injection from Horn? Seems improbable from an individual experiencing despair on a level that necessitates the melding of souls. ***************************** Seth Lombardi firstname.lastname@example.org http://pages.prodigy.net/nlom/blogg.html AIM: melombardi "Two faces are alike; neither is funny by itself, but side by side their likeness makes us laugh" -Pascal _________________________________________________________________ Chat with friends online, try MSN Messenger: http://messenger.msn.com --
