Earthly Delights

April 1, 1999

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am being called to glory, and I need your help.

I answered the call of the Fringe, and I shared the Word with all who would hear. Many people broke communion cookies together, and delighted in William Blake's proverbs of hell. My first full-length theatrical production was truly a phenomenal spectacle of physical poetry!

But I knew when I embarked on this journey that it was a long road, one that would require much more than the six months I had to prepare for the Fringe Festival. The next staging of The Animated Blake will feature even more variety, and my preaching will be more powerful.

I'm Revved up* to continue staging this juggling revival — to further illuminate the poetry and prophecies of William Blake through juggling & physical theater.

Will you join me? Follow me & hear me sing my rapturous Song. I will cause my voice to be heard on the clouds that glitter in the sun. I will call & who shall answer me? I will sing who shall reply?

But frankly, this mission is an expensive endeavor, my friends, and I need your help. Your generous Offerings will be acknowledged by earthly Delights. As you give, so shall you receive:

• The Souvenir Program Book
Containing images from the show plus the full text of the poetry & prophecies illuminated in The Animated Blake-this program is FREE to all who attend the show!
• The Fortune Cookies from Hell
Communion cookies containing aphorisms from Blake's "Marriage of Heaven and Hell." Each package includes a Devil's Dozen of the 66 Proverbs of Hell.
• The Flaming Word Up T-shirt
Golden yellow and 100% cotton. On the front: a red and brown reproduction of Word Up's fiery Blake-derived design. On the back: proverbs of Hell.

Thank you for answering the call.


The Rev'd James Jay
