The number one unanswered question of this nearly virgin year and the whore year of 2010: What is "Hoc Scripsi", what does it mean?
easy - it's Latin and simply means - "I wrote this". I've thought about my next collection being titled this way. I had thought about using "Hoc poema condidi" which means - I wrote this poem, however, it seemed too much even for me; if not too specific.
My reasons for using it are unverifiable - so I'll keep those to myself.
Before anyone begins to think that I speak Latin I have to admit that as where I am familiar with Latin to a degree that would make my English teachers very proud, I was not able to come up with the translations on my own. For this I had to rely on a friend of mine, Noah Blan, whom I know through my wife and is a wonderfully studied man. I don't think he needed to refer to anything other than his brain for the translations, a talent I can only wish I possessed.
Today, I am tired. Not sleeping well as is part of my malady. As I am trying to postpone a nap until the opportune time to best leverage my tiredness, this means it must be put off until late tonight or I may not sleep, even if I close my eyes.
but I'm jumpy.
