He remembered the look that had lurked in the girl’s eyes when they had met on the streets and thought of the note she had written.
He had just received a note from Helen White, the daughter of the town banker, in answer to one from him.
The first and last “note”s in this Book o’ Music concerns Willard, the receiver. The first note can be viewed as his reaction to the last. We can call this a Wheeler-Wilson paradox.
Willard is himself a Note in this musical book. The Key Tone perhaps. *Or* that music (and its notes, perhaps key notes) now resides in the book and not the album, thinking of Toledo again.
We must ask what is in this note received by Willard. It is 2 things in one. But we can answer the higher of the 2 in the following refinements, and define it as “more sophisticated”…
Indicates (music) beet or rhythm. Also indicates Beatles, with variant name Beetles here.
Clearly indicates Sophie’s Place by Larry Jordan (video element of Sophie’s No. 9, with audio by Beatles), but also “Sophistication” (s.story).
The sadness of sophistication has come to the boy. With a little gasp he sees himself as merely a leaf blown by the wind through the streets of his village.
When the moment of sophistication came to George Willard his mind turned to Helen White, the Winesburg banker’s daughter. Always he had been conscious of the girl growing into womanhood as he grew into manhood.
In youth there are always two forces fighting in people. The warm unthinking little animal struggles against the thing that reflects and remembers, and the older, the more sophisticated thing had possession of George Willard. Sensing his mood, Helen walked beside him filled with respect.
Two notes, two forces reflected.
We can now return to rainbowology and its death in Toledo.
Rainbowology dies in OHIO.
