8 years ago in ''practice'' we realized that no Queen promotion necessitates hard choices for hard times. Do you want to turn into Horse, Falcon, Elephant, or turn to Stone? These are reruns of the XX CMs for novices and Gilman-overtaken mythologists. I finally have themes scientific in mind for CMXXI on. Possibly poesy is somewhat more in fashion for the same reason, and Ovid had the best ideas on that side of the divide (that Chess herself ever intends to bridge) before Shakespeare.
