Blind Poets Don't Read Newspapers

Nothing could be more relevant in these "Times"[1] of crises.[2] Turn towards the Classics, the Hellenic grounds Western Civilization and informs our thinking, morals and laws. Avoid all distracting debates about how many men contributed to what we know as Homer, that she was a female, or speculation as to the five other lost Epics.[3] The Bard is what I like to refer to Homer as, one amoung many with the probability of single source authorship as a highly probable. At least towards the that is where I lean, how about you? Blind at first, now we see, for the influences are all around us, within and through the Western culture that defines, confines and informs our barbaric beginnings.
