Arthur and Mary-Lynn


What does one do on a rainy day at the Manoir aux Visons when there is a blackout over at the Yoma and no campfires tales to tell? Playing with bits of paper of course.

An ode to Mary-Lynn, muse for the MinXus School of Beauty. Rightly so.

    This must be Arthur Miller.

    Yes. Or Quentin? Quentin and Maggie from “After the Fall”.

    Now I have to wonder how you know these things. I’ve never seen nor read “After the Fall.” I have learned some things reading about it. Maybe “The Misfits” has more connection to the Mink Ranch.

    Last time I went to BookTown, a few months ago, I got an old issue of Time International, February 1964. On the front page there is a photo of Venice, full page, but the headline says “Marilyn’s Ghost – Arthur Miller writes about his shocking new play”. At that time I didn’t pay much attention to it, except for the black and white photos of the play that I found really nice. When you posted your poster about the School of Beauty I suddenly remembered I had that article. It made me want to know more about Miller, Marilyn etc…

    LIFE International, not Time International.

    The photography in those old LIFE magazines can be very good. Self-improvement is as important at the Mink Ranch as health & beauty.

      Argg, it really annoys me that I cannot comment on Dw’s poem. Oh well. Tell the pip I like it a lot. Minkoo has offered to frame it, we’ll hang it up in the corridor at the entrance of the Manoir, beside the shoe cabinet.
