I had some moments of realisation on Calton Hill, which is what it's there for, I suppose, and one of them was that Dionysios is too strong a wine to drink every day. He needs someone to balance him out, just as he serves to provide essential imbalance in his turn. So...
This year I will be mostly following Dionysios/Apollo.
I must stress that this does *not* mean that I have to become either a Nietzschian or a Rush fan, just to make that perfectly clear.
I looked them up, and Dionysios is supposed to rule in December to March when Apollo is away, but I'm not a member of an agricultural society, so I'll keep it more flexible. I think the proportions are about right, though - no-one needs more than about 33% of either madness or ecstasy. I suspect that in my case it's less. So Dionysios will be in charge of holidays and at least every other weekend. I'm not letting him out at work unless I'm in a *very* funny mood.
