Keeping up with Baron Samedi —
Or: Debriefing Josefine

From an Amazon.com customer review of a book on
northern Norway in World War II, Fire and Ice —
"… Hunt doesn't take sides. He approaches
the story as a journalist and documentary maker,
rather than as an academic."
The book, as the author notes, was published in Britain
on October 6, 2014.
A synchronicity check of the publication date yields
a variation on the "Fire and Ice" theme —
"Jeg prøver å innføre et narrativ, noe magisk og forførende,
samt erstatte den iboende materialistiske logikken med
esoterisk kosmologi og symbolikk." — Josefine Lyche
A sequel to last night's "For Baron Samedi" —
The music in the trailer for the new film "American Hustle"
is a 1969 tune by Led Zeppelin. This, together with the
magick sigils posted at Facebook yesterday by artist
Josefine Lyche, suggests a review of Zeppelin sigils
from a 1971 album. These are, as shown above on a
record label, the personal symbols of the four musicians
in the band. Two of the symbols may, of course, be
interpreted as representing the Holy Trinity.

See also Josefine Lyche's "Grids, you say?"
I prefer Lyche's versions of the diagonal
3×3 grid. Her versions have no lettering.
(This post was suggested by a photo of magical sigils
that Lyche posted a few hours ago at Facebook.
The above seems to be another such sigil that may
or may not be intended to function like those posted
today by Lyche.)
Alyssa is Wonderland
"Of course the character of Carroll’s original Alice is evident in each outrageous creation she dreams up in 'Wonderland' and in the sequel, 'Through the Looking-Glass,' which means that she’s a straight man to her own imagination. (She is Wonderland.)"
From Inside the White Cube—
"The sacramental nature of the space becomes clear, and so does one of the great projective laws of modernism: as modernism gets older, context becomes content. In a peculiar reversal, the object introduced into the gallery 'frames' the gallery and its laws."
From Yogi Berra–
"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
