Rehearsal title comes from a memorable
quote by writers, philosophers,
psychologists, or artists. Each quote marks the significance of each
part of this epic journey of what will be more than 1,500,000 words
when the series is complete. They also all include
lyrics to a song by an indie musician used as a music epilogue,
with permission from the artists.
Rehearsal: A Different Drummer
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it
is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music
which he hears, however measured or far away."
Henry David Thoreau
Song: Come Alive by Simon Steadman
(2000, from Loser Friendly)
Rehearsal: The Highest Aim
"If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he
would keep it in port forever."
St. Thomas Aquinas
Song: There You Go by Adam's
Attic (2007, from Skylines and City Lights)
Rehearsal: Of Chaotic Currents
"Nobody, as long as he moves about the chaotic currents of life,
is without trouble."
Carl Gustav Jung
Song: A Laugh Away from a Tear by Phillip
Rehearsal: In Refluent Waters
“Her antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian
generations: her nocturnal predominance: her satellitic dependence:
her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising
and setting by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced
invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response to inaffirmative
interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her
power to enamour, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane,
to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her
visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity:
her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her
motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas,
her silence: her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible.”
James Joyce, from Ulysses
Books 5 & 6 are as of yet unnamed. Their quotes will be added
