Subject: RE: Twisted roots of John Barleycorn...
Very nicely done.
I will digest it this evening.
Thanks for the nod to Jack London's "John Barleycorn - memoires of an alcoholic" it is an excellent read.
"He is the king of liars. He is the frankest truthsayer. He is the august companion with whom one walks with the gods. He is also in league with the Noseless One. His way leads to truth naked, and to death. He gives clear vision, and muddy dreams. He is the enemy of life, and the teacher of wisdom beyond life's wisdom. He is a red-handed killer, and he slays youth."
