A while ago, I was stunned to find that the odd visitor had made it to this blog via the European Council for Steiner Waldorf Education. Even more strangely, their ‘press reports’ page. Maybe they didn’t read the post, I thought, convinced that someone would contact them and make them aware of this mistake. I didn’t want to tell my blog readers and spoil the fun before I had a chance to relish it. The post is from september, but it didn’t turn up there until quite recently. Along with, I presume, the other news (the link below is to the newspaper article I think I must have been commenting on). Today it’s still there.
Or perhaps reality is so peculiar — not to say wondrous — that the ECSWE likes the ethereal kiosk? It is quite a splendid place, after all. Shall we offer them a glass of champagne? Perhaps a few nuts? Oh, I know! Ice-cream with nuts in it! And caramel. Only after that we’ll get them a bit tipsy on champagne. I’d ask Michael, the archangel (is that really him… or is it someone else? can someone else see him… it? doesn’t look quite like a normal archangel to me… it’s monstrous!), to come in and meet our prominent visitors, but he’s flying around, flapping his wings and chasing a bee around the gates. Oh dear Dog! He (it) is not trying to swallow him, is he? That could cause unfortunate stinging inside the stomach; but should I care, I then ask myself. Anyway, I’ll draw the curtains. Can’t have the ECSWE folks watch this saturday night spectacle! They’ll return home to their headquarters and sigh: ‘what a drama! Let’s never leave our own spiritual paradigm ever again. At least we’re safe here.’ They will remember the splendid ice-cream, the sleeping man in the corner (‘such a striking resemblence to… der Doktor? but no, can’t be’) and will forever wonder about the odd events outside the window. Did the bee need rescuing, et c, et c. Many questions, few answers. This realm we inhabit is full of mystery.
