"The Tesseract is where it belongs: out of our reach."

The Avengers'  Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson

Today's New York Times —

"You never know what could happen.
If you have Sam, you’re going to be cool."

— The late David R. Ellis, film director

If anyone in San Diego cares about the relationship
of Spann's plane to Fury's Tesseract, he or she may

Eve and Cleavage

From a poem by Frances Frost—

"The upper peak, the shattered rock that cleaves the northward sky
remains alone untaken by the darkness"

— "From a Mountain-Top," The North American Review ,
December 1939 (Vol. 248, No. 2, page 301)

For some material related to the Frost poem,
if only by verbal coincidence, see shattered + rock in this journal.

See also rock + cleavage.

For the relationship to Eve, see New Year's Eve, 2012
and the following image by Karolin Schnoor, who also
illustrated the New York Times  op-ed piece "Catholic
Education, in Need of Salvation
" published online on
Epiphany 2013 (see last evening's Log24 post)—

For some context, see Establishment of the Talented.
