Those Fear and Loathing drawings were only possible for me because of the America's cup six months earlier, which injected the the drawings with the eerie sense of being there to record the sensations.

She took the cup of life to sip, too bitter 'twas to drain. She meekly put it from her lip, and went to sleep again.
He has no enemy, you say; My friend your boast is poor, He who hath mingled in the fray Of duty that the brave endure Must have made foes. If he has none Small is the work that he has done. He has hit no traitor on the hip; Has cast no cup from perjured lip; Has never turned the wrong to right; Has been a coward in the fight.
For auld lang syne, my jo, For auld lang syne, We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet For auld lang syne.Robert Burns

Christ has given us, not only the ritual of an ordinance, but the pattern for our lives, when He took the cup, and gave thanks.

Man, the two-fold creature, apprehends The two-fold manner, in and outwardly, And nothing in the world comes single to him. A mere itself, cup, column, or candlestick, All patterns of what shall be in the Mount; The whole temporal show related royally, And build up to eterne significance Through the open arms of God.
