July 2011: A horrific loss to the world -- and to me.

NeoNietzsche, my teacher, my husband, my heart, died of a heart attack earlier this month.

I will leave his blog in place until .... I don't when. If I think of it, I will come and publish the comments to the blog. He did not believe there was hope in 'teaching' -- sheep do not become wolves merely because they understand the situation. I wish you lone and pack wolves out there a life filled with such love and safety as you can find. (He always read the blog's stats about his commenters' locations with pleasure, and was glad you came to read. "Someone from Norway came. Someone from Australia!" You pleased him, that you visited.)

I leave you a bit of wisdom that Neo sent me once: as a description of himself -- and of me -- it is accurate.

Freidrich Nietzsche wrote:
Brave, unconcerned, mocking, violent -- thus wisdom wants us:
she is a woman and always loves only a warrior.
There is little of man here: therefore their women strive to be mannish.
For only he who is man enough will release the woman in woman.

He was a man such as I could not have imagined, nor dreamed up, and now I must live without him.
