The Magic Path

Postby Bob Farmer » August 26th, 2016, 10:13 am

I just wanted to say that "The Magic Path to the Way of the Journey (p. 60, September 2016 Genii) actually made sense in the original Spanish and the English translation doesn't really do the article justice, thus necessitating a certain amount of reading between the lines to get the full flavor and sense.

Ooooooh. In the original Spanish, is it. Aren't we posh.

I thought it read fine!
Although, I did wonder whether the townspeople of Bizet used overhand or underhand throwing style in their Saint Guillermo celebrations. That could have been made more clear.

There was nothing clear to me about any of it!

Can't wait for The Master's Penguin lecture!

Bob, will you be helping with the translation during the lecture?

Bob speaks Spanish as good as he does English. He's fluid in Spanish.

The only Spanish fluid I'm familiar with is Tequila.
