Ack! I received my very first piece of mystery fan mail last night!
After a long day of slaving away in Poowich and a long adventure riding the buses, I finally opened the door to my lovely lovely home and what did I see? I saw a very odd, giant plastic bag covered in airlift tags and containing quite a heavy box addressed to none other than Weekes Gaehl!
Obviously, my immediate response was–bomb. So, I text B and was like, ‘Do you think this is a bomb? Should I wait for you to come home before I open it?’ He pointed out that it would probably be better for me to get blown up by myself rather than both of us getting blown up together so, I opened it.
This is what I found:
What!!!! So cool!!!! I mean, look… LOOK at Sister Wendy!
Sender unknown but identity suspected, it appears that this book travelled from Oregon to California to Tennessee to London. It must be knackered.
Don’t worry, I will definitely be feeding back Sister Wendy’s words of wisdom and maybe adding my 2 cent analysis.
Thanks a million, wonderful sender!
This Weekes Word is divinely inspired by the brilliant Sister Wendy, obviously.
Afflatus: from the Latin meaning to be blown upon and coming to English usage in the mid-17th century meaning a divine creative impulse or inspiration. Ex: Weekes was granted unprecedented afflatus the moment Sister Wendy’s cherished vessel of knowledge arrived on her doorstep.
