“Spine Line”

“I seem to be established pretty firmly in Collagesity, Minoa style Hucka D. It feels like a permanent virtual home.”

Hucka D.:

Characters will emerge soon. Are you ready to begin an interpretation of the Embarras collage series? It may be done already… we don’t know.

bb:

Um, sure I suppose.

Hucka D.:

You are shifting emphasis to Mythos. As [fore]told of course. You escaped this time. You will always escape. Until you don’t.

bb:

Meaning that I’ll always get to leave mom’s house because I live in another town and have to work there. Blue Mountain.

Hucka D.:

This is mirroring the older, childhood escape. That’s why it has resonance. Ullyses was entrapped on Calypso for 7 years. Not 7 nights, but it is similar in that it is a sealing. Where’s Edward?

bb:

I don’t think he’s really that happy.

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

What is the meaning of the Spine Line, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Escape. Eoc. [ Pearl Gray].

bb:

I must return to the flea market. Get more toys for another happening. Surprisingly, very surprisingly, Mythos still has energy, purpose. Pattonsburg is still an active center. Edwardston. Just as much as they always were, in ways.

Hucka D.:

The Spine Line gives energy to these places.

bb:

I may go to Mythopolis Saturday, Hucka D. Check out more of this Bridge02. Explore Carr Creek. Don’t think that’s the name for it, though.

Hucka D.:

Think of escape. Think of what will happen even when you live in Middletown. Mythos is just as close to Future Home in Middletown as it is to Blue Mountain… closer, in fact. Mythos can still be a laboratory. That is the wish of the parents as well. (pause) Spine Line has protected many of the areas from your childhood — Edwardston, Pattonsburg, Calypso, Eoc. There is another line, however.

bb:

After March I will not be able to explore the Spine Line locations, most likely. I’ll have to shift back to Blue Mountain.

Hucka D.:

You can still visit your Bridge02.

Embarras 09: “Spine Line”

bb:

What of Embarras 09? You said you wanted to begin an analysis.

Hucka D.:

Spine Line is within. We’ll start a bit tonight then follow through tomorrow. Get nods out tomorrow. Begin to nail down time of DOD.

bb:

Yes I will. I’m solidly in Collagesity now. Really have been since June, although I shifted from Noru to Rubi in November.

Hucka D.:

It was all Norubi[ anyway].

“I’m opening Embarras 09 in a new window. We’ll begin tonight. We have an actual spine, or a metallic representation thereof within, alongside the spine of a book. And not any old book, but Winesap. A metallic boy seems to look through the book at a woman with a man sitting in her lap in front of a cave. This is Odysseus. This is the cave of Calypso. On Calypso’s lap is Edward. E. Swift…

Hucka D.:

Not your Edward but still your Edward. He represents the Great Rubi Forest through the Big Thicket of Camp Ruby. Lucky you. He is you established in Collagesity, Rubi style or Minoa style. He is *protection*. The boy attempts to look at the lady. Yet Edward is in the way. The lady is on a red rug. On the top part of the metal spine is the same cave, smaller in perspective, with a *blue* stream coming out of it. This is the opposition of red and blue, Russellian style. The blue and red face opposite ways in front of the cave. The blue stream from the cave seems to “pour” into the spine from the top. The spine is the same as the[ spine of the] book.

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

The blue is Noru and the red is Rubi. Both the red rug and the blue stream pour, as it were, out of the cave. This is good collage… peak of the Embarras series so far.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D.:

You worked harder on this that some of the others. It shows. Refinement.

bb:

It had surprises.

Hucka D.:

You move away from the tetraptych, true, but images collide more in meaningful ways here, although you’ll return to the multi-panel works soon enough. Now you noticed the *Achilles Heel*.

bb:

Yes. The achilles heel of the boy. And this relates to Achilles, Virginia and Lady and Glass there and a particular story from Winesap, also highlighted by Faherty’s The Ordained. The blue-green horse emerges from the hole, like a cave on its side. The cyan or blue-green horse is Eoc, Hucka D.

embarras09excerpt02

Hucka D.:

12 Ounce Mouse or Fitz (green being behind cyan horse) sees the hole; seems somewhat alarmed. Fitz is Britonia, Fitz is entrapment in Britonia, in the house. Can’t escape. Yet the person in the house which is the same as Fitz here sees the escape through the hole. Eoc is escape through the Spine Line. The hole in the leg of the cyan horse mirrors the hole on the ground. This is also the concept of Greenup as opposed to Yellow Down.

bb:

Fitz is Britonia and Skillet is Spring Squirrel or Swamp Squirrel. This is the 2 to Britonia’s 1. Skillet seals the entrapment inside the Confederation, which is the same as Zircon. Omega.

Hucka D.:

Yes. It has been a slow process but the sealing is almost complete. Nowhere to go. Mobility lost.

bb:

Then we have a woman reading a book to the left, just like Embarras 08 has Scully reading the Jose Chung book. And like Embarras 08, horses emerge from the left of the reading girl or woman. The same 2 horses.

The 6 legged, cyan colored horse has reappeared from that collage as well. The spine of the book becomes like the [eastern] border of our Middletown property. We are afraid that people will be able to look in on us there, Hucka D., so we must create a protecting border.

Hucka D.:

You must extend the border down, yes. Else people will be able to peer in.

bb:

But the middle row of green shrubs may have to be erased… cut down.

Hucka D.:

Perhaps.

bb:

If we could build a house as small as the one in Embarrass 07…

embarras06test15

… then the line of shrubs (appearing behind it in that collage) there would be okay.

“This is about not just one mother but two.”

bb:

OMG, Hucka: Edward Swift and Kate Swift as one!
