NIGEL (in response to my Christmas blog):
I was particularly interested in your take on Mystagogue. There are reasons for thinking that the mystagogue exists to interfere in human life but he/she or it is not me! There's nothing mystagogish about me! The reason I am ambiguous about it/him/her is that I don't understand much of what's going on so these current poems are an attempt to get a handle on a phenomena which personal experience leads me to believe in.
