This week’s Friend of the Show is Phil Stamato (Wow!) @pstamato
In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas
corpora; di, coeptis (nam vos mutastis et illa)
adspirate meis primaque ab origine mundi
ad mea perpetuum deducite tempora carmen.
My mind takes me to speak of forms
Changed into new bodies.
Gods, upon my beginnings (for you’ve changed those too)
Breathe! and from the first origin of the world
To my own times, draw out a song eternal.
– Ovid (Metamorphoses)

Phil’s picks from others
