Fractalla B: Wha?.. sha da...wha?

Fractal J: (me) Sha-den-freude. It is a Teutonic human word that means joy in the suffering
of others. I think the E’s are trying to tell us that the T’s joy is making them miserable.

A silence fell over us as we gazed at the eruption. Then...

Fractalla J: (Softly) I don’t know why, but this reminds me of the first lines
of Lovid’s Tale Spin verbal ditty WHY...

why does a kitten
lose its wonder smitten?

why does a young girl
lose her swine before pearl?

O, why does fire
lose passion to aspire?

why does time
lose sight of a crime?

and O, why does an earth
lose rotation wonder birth?

Another pregnant silence. Then...

Fractel B: I just farted.

Fractalla B: How sweet.
