If repetition is a chant…well, so, I knew this guy a long time ago, he had some issues, it’s true. He had boxes and boxes of journals, he wrote nearly every day, for all the good it did. He would wave casually at the boxes and say, “pick any one, any date, any year, and I bet I can tell you what it says. They all say more or less the same thing.”
He laughed. So again, if repetition is the basis of chant, then this thing he did, is that a penchant?
