delta (n.) c. 1200, Greek letter shaped like a triangle, equivalent to our “D,” the name from Phoenician daleth “tent door.” Herodotus used it of the mouth of the Nile, and it was so used in English from 1550s; applied to other river mouths from 1790.
Tent door…are we inside or outside the tent? Either way, we aren’t seeing everything that is either outside or inside, and it’s probably both. The “tent” is a box.
Sometimes, the inside is scary.
I kinda think you can’t escape unless you go inside. The outside world is a reflection of you. And you could say the mirror is when heaven meets earth.
River DELTAS are a place where time ends.
I was sitting at a lovely restaurant having lunch with M and a friend from New Orleans. They kept talking about a place called “Tremayne”. It turns out, Tremé sounds exactly like Tremayne. I knew about the place called Tremé (that sounds like Tremayne) before hearing their conversation, but at the time, I was thinking that a place in New Orleans called Tremayne completely made sense to me, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s Tremayne or Tremé, and it is the same thing.
Sister Jenny makes a point about ongoing rituals at DELTAS…
Why? Well, let’s go to the YouTube oracle and see what takes place at the mISsISsippi Delta in New Orleans… Watch. You won’t be disappointed.
Part deux coming up later today.
