Even though I solved the puzzle, there is an inner emptiness in my soul. I am not on the first page. One day maybe but not now. I bow my head in quiet resignation.
Look again oh empty one and fill thine soul.....(#15-page1)
I am still shaking...
I can scarce believe my eyes. Like Tantalus in the lake, the fruit has always remained out of my grasp. But also like Tantalus, the fruit has been given to me on a single occasion. You, briansladovich, are my Odysseus.
I have tasted of the fruit. Now I desire it even more.
nice and insructive puzzle! But would someone explain to me this fetish about being on the "first page"?? I thought the point of the exercise was to solve the puzzle, discuss its chess ramifictions and/or other possible variations??
Yes. Solving the puzzle is the point of the exercise, but since being on the first page is very important to some people, it is very important to all of us because it is a subject that never will die.
