More weird stuff from me. Ok I think it was around 2004 when I checked out the Infinitum Nihil site and I was annoyed because there wasn't much a could look at, I figured there was some password, like in one of those creepy spy movies...I forgot all about it.

Then, a few months ago the thought recurred and that Amber something-or-other was the password popped into my head which is rather mysterious. I don't know what the point is and whether this information is useful to anyone. Nonetheless, there you have it.

Respect for the monkey-mind! love Melanie Amelia Neofitou.

Approaching the hotel, I anticipate a warm, cosy week ahead, the creamy brown, double storey country house is inviting as we cruise up through the dreary weather.
The room tidy, but wanting a good steam clean, I'm disappointed and head out to investigate the lake. Others encourage me to swim, though the water is green with flotsom mouldering blue. upon swimming we soon discover a number of dead bodies in the water. The water is disgusting but I am rather detached and unafraid.
I soon come across Amber Heard's head. The head, rather animated and enthusiastic babbles on like a teenage girl. Clearly Amber's head, is thinking I'm someone she used to know, the water logged skin and purple lips turned towards me, the leaking ears, tuned, hopefully listening. I humour the head politely.
Continuing on to remove the dead head from the water, I awake, and cannot get the dream out of my head until I write it down. Will the head be reunited with the body? Will she begin afresh and escape being mouldy lake girl? Does Amber like blue cheese? What the hell does this have to do with me? In time, I know, these questions wil be answered.

In The Hand Of Dante

Deep in the lowest reaches of the Vatican library, a secret chamber is opened for the first time in centuries. Inside it is an object of inestimable value: the manuscript of The Divine Comedy, written in Dante's own hand.
The priest who finds this treasure spirits it away to his home in Sicily, where it comes into the grasp of more worldly parties. And so in New York a few weeks later, a sometime writer, sometime thief named Nick Tosches gets a phone call from a friend. There's an item he wants him to look at, a manuscript that needs authentication. Tosches recognizes the pages for what they are—and embarks on the most harrowing adventure of his life.

As this story unfolds, so too does a parallel tale: the odyssey, seven hundred years ago, of Dante himself, a man trying to weave out of the grossness of his own humanity a poem that contains the sum of the world's wisdom and the very breath of the diving. It is every bit as deadly a struggle as that among the individuals fighting to possess his manuscript centuries later. (Optioned)
