Mag 22

The old magus actually timed out everyone's summer.
==================================
If you figure this one out, other offerings can be found in Willow's garden at Magpie Tales.

when the tomatos are gone the summer is done?

Dear Catalyst: Am I making an assumption in assuming that "magus" is a literary quote from author John Fowles;

"The Magus (1966) is the first novel written (but second published) by this British author"?

Am I an idiot for not understanding the word "magus"? Please reference hear. This is better than a Haiku! The necessity to economize exactification to edify English. Brilliant! Got to start reading again! There's a movie "Magus" as well! Hope TCM plays it soon!

Pray tell; am I the right ballpark?

I can only guess that the truth is as written.

I propose that 'The old Magus' is God, timing 'everyone's sunmmer' (mature part of life), and 'timed out' suggests an autumn and winter to follow.
Are you starting a new idea, where we have a second conundrum following on from each Magpie tale? I dare you!

Because everyone was bad?

Is your magus related to Magus Rex who ferried his daughter across time to hide her from a suitor? Or Raistlin? Or Morganna?

I love magi!

And thank you for a WOW magpie.

Sounds to me as though the tomatoes tell when summers come and go?

Friko said...

No, don't know, can't guess.
Having read all the comments as well as your post I can't think that anyone is close.

Do tell, please.
I want to know.

Also, thanks for visiting my blog.

The magus destroyed the tomatoes and since nothing tastes of summer like the tomatoes..... No?

Catalyst said...

The solution lies in my next posting. Click on "Oddball Observations" at the top of this page if you haven't already been there.

River-Rose said...

The question is what are we diverting our attention from?

Catalyst said...

RR - Ah, that is the question.

Lisa said...
