Considerations of Essness

Bob Brueckl has sent me a multi-layered examination of the serpentine letter of our alphabet.

First, there is the envelope, plain, so I cut it open. Second there is a card, with the following image, suggesting conduits, water, movement across space:

Bob Brueckl, "Please Consider an S." (31 Jan 2005)

Third, there is no message inside the card except for this:


Fourth, there rests inside the inner thighs of that card a light-blue envelope fashioned out of heavy deckled paper (ostensibly by Brueckl himself) bearing the emblazonement "AN S" on its face. Fifth, from within the second envelope, there appears a clipping of glossy paper with the image of bediamonded brooch in the shape of an S.

Sixth, thee is our careful consideration of this S.
