As Faustus begins his bargaining for fame and gain, my scanner highlights a phrase of what Faustus sees as one gain of making a deal with the devil: to be resolved of all ambiguities. Hmm-m-m, goes the scanner. And suddenly I become aware of an evolution in how I see ambiguity. It used to drive me crazy. It seems that this tension has fallen away for me somehow.
Jim has been in contemplative mood following a visit to the theater to see a neighbour play Faustus. See his post Living Ambiguity.
On a personal note: I’m currently allowing myself time and space to have a cold. It is a rare treat! This approach comes highly recommended for those who have the time. Who would have thought one could be happy and content while sneezing and wheezing into tissues.
