I am recording, anonymously, thoughts for myself that might interest a very few others as I try to come to terms with The Cloud of Unknowing through reading, reflection, and witnessing. We get by perfectly well without knowing the author of The Cloud. So it matters all the less that anyone know or bother to fret about who is writing this blog.
He’s only been at it for a few days now, but the first few posts look most promising. My friend is a better philosopher (and philologist) than I am, and so he’s digging into the language of The Cloud, using the original Middle English text. Granted, a bit geekier than what I do, but interesting and containing real substance.
I’ve already had one person on Facebook ask if this is me writing anonymously. No, it’s not. It’s someone I know in person through the monastery in Conyers. He’s a he (!) and is a layperson. And that’s all I’m going to say about him.
Go check out the blog. And add it to your blogroll.
