I remember that review like it was yesterday! 🙂

And thank you, Lawrence for taking me with you to go visit DW Cooper who was one of your SirBacon.org artists and co-author of one of the most popular pages ever on SirBacon.org, "A Bond for All the Ages : Sir Francis Bacon and John Dee : the Original 007". I'll always remember meeting him that wonderful California day and the very cool place he lived.

A few other names come to mind who have been part of SirBacon.org who are now in Eternity with Bacon. Maybe we need to start to build a page of names and memories before some of us need to be included who still remember.

I've just visited Joy's website. As a fellow author, I'm quite impressed with it. It shows that she has put effort into making her website a worthy setting in which to showcase her accomplishments--her books. Now I have new books to add to my reading list!

As an aside: as a quilter, geometry as a design element interests me. For example, the mariner's compass that is on the cover of her book, The Messenger, immediately caught my eye. It is a popular quilting motif, with one large compass often used alone on a quilt or as a medallion, a large center design surrounded by one or more borders. Traditionally, I've read, quilters were often quite aware of and intentional about the symbolism associated with the designs they chose.  

The fact that John Byrom invented a shorthand system also interests me. I took shorthand (Gregg--not Pitman, the system that developed from Byrom's phonetic method--according to Joy's page on her "Byrom Projects")  in high school and have found it very useful at times, professionally and otherwise. I wonder if they are still teaching it in the schools. I'm sure that practicing shorthand improved my handwriting generally. But then, they aren't even teaching handwriting anymore to the little kids. Seems a shame. They need to develop their own individual signatures (in case they ever have to prove they are the author of anything important).

(Added on edit: Byrom's dates, per Joy's website, are 1691-1763, and the Mariner's Compass quilt design has been traced back to 1726.)
