This, well, it's true- it was and might be a lovely little community - I'm not especially opposed to trying, heck, I'll actually try.
Here's some of the 'ol shamanism that I've worked out lately.
The Opera - The Opera's an urban achievement you know- it's the alchemist's artform they invented it on account of their wish to unite the arts to one magical art - the urban spectacle. Nowadays of course your experience at the opera might suggest to you the ruthless nonsensical foolishness of the world of money and finance - I have to point this out because I always see the empty seat three rows up that the ushers prevent you from moving to becuase they cost $50 more - foolish!
Opera means Work in italian - cause it was the "Work" of the Alchemists - it's their magical labor and not for nothing is it part of the SATOR square. So and thus to my point (although I could make subsidiary points here and now about maybe you should aughta give the Work a chance if you can - it's not right to listen you know- you need to go- the Spectacle's the Work, is the Alchemy - and likewise- what's the place of it? Film? Any notions?)
But my thing here is the SATOR square- or really any magic square - chances are- if you live in an urban environment like I do you live in a grid of squares. So why not generate the beneficent effects of the Magic square for your neighborhood- give it a try anyway. Ten Square blocks can do it and maybe you'll walk your own labrynth or mandala as you go - stations of the city so to speak.
