    Hi ProfessorTarr!

    I was looking at the body of the piece "There It Was" and spotted "spirit of Marsan" who is an author and speaker who wrote The Lion's Way, Think Naked, Who Are You When Nobody's Looking.

    I spotted "Frost" which I believed was a reference to another author who wrote poetry. Robert Lee Frost wrote such things as The Road Not Taken and The Mountain.

    The Bottom Left fine English scroll, I anagrammed and got Blue Ink I. I did find the first name as you mentioned and had to laugh as I got a last name that could be spelled phonetically as Lucky.

    Gotta hand it to Domino. Clever stuff.

    Trove on.

    Default another angle

    I don't know how to use the click to show feature so I will just say: take the word that is right before the word "it" and it's. Kinda makes sense.

    I do think the word It is important... not sure how it all will work though... I was totally convinced it was going to be one of those count-the-words between the letters things and then that fell apart on me in practice...

    Frost makes sense in relation to roads not taken etc... Marsan I don't know...

    My list of names I had an extra E in there... The double J's are tricky...

    Trying to read a lot between the lines... not much going...

    Anyone find a font that has the branding iron squares - seems that there are 36 of them. Convenient for alphanumeric,eh?

    Hint, they are not a font.

    I was trying to find that exact old script font he used for the letters "BLKUENII" at the bottom left on the scroll. I thought I would find it on fonts.com (the same one where we found the red rock font). I found something very similar listed on fonts.com as "ITC Wedding". It seems the same except it has double lines...

    FoxyKeys, you said it is "fine English scroll". Could you tell me where I could find a picture of it? Anyway, it's the kind of calligraphic script that you would see a scroll wedding invitation. A hint to combine these letters "BLKUENII" with something else? (Lolol!)

    Or it could just be a hint to scroll the poem (like a scytale).

    The font size of these calligraphic letters is 12. The width of the scroll is 12 centimeters, and the length of the pencil (page 1) is 12 centimeters. And page 12 is the one that isn't numbered and has a smiley instead.
    ....??


    On a different subject... this is page 30, and there are 30 lines below the title, and 10 stanzas. I wonder if the ten numbers of the phone number (after the #1) could be refering to the 10 stanzas? There seems to be a beat or pentameter to "listen" to or watch for, I'm not sure what it's called.

    Is this possibly a reference to the Naked Cowboy in Timesquare?

    Taking the 3 pairs of bold letters on page 29, you will notice that they are separated by one unbolded letter each. Taking this middle letter, you get "D-I-G". Reference to dig to get the cash?

    Default There It Was

    If you look at the last letters of every line of the poem, they alternate.

    In the first stanza, you get S-E-S
    In the second stanza you get M-S-M
    In the third... E-O-E
    In the forth... Y-E-Y

    All of the stanzas repeat this pattern, EXCEPT the sixth stanza, which has the last letters
    of each line as D-E-S.

    Was this done on purpose? Is that sixth stanza supposed to stand out? Or could it be that this is common just because of the rhyming patten?
