Following is from a post by Dave Buck on his blog at Coachville http://www.coachville.com/2013/03/18/guru-flu-epidemic/(Cocheville is one of the first Coach training Online course started by the now departed Thomas J. Leonard, an Icarus I might portray in Icaresques soon). Apart from being a call to action for “real Coaches”– because, truly, authentic coaches, more often than not, suck at self-promotion and need some training (the intended aim of Dave’s article); you, coachees (prospective) or chance visitors, can learn a lot about what coaching is not and therefore what “true” coaching can offer (in bold).

I think we have had enough of ourselves
dashing about and posing in sweet entropy.
You were the Ace of Cups
sitting there at the end like a period,
or a new sentence,
or a death sentence.
I have exhausted my organs
in vitriolic distinctions and
My body is writ with your pictures
like the valleys of Nazca,
you have carved me
with your hummingbird,
and I am staring at the blood
running down my hands
at our gasps and entreaties and
Just war with me, won’t you?
I beg you to plot against me.
Position your pieces and topple me,
because once you rid yourself of the
you will be victorious.
Don’t deny me.
Just give me this one favor;
attack, and rip, and chew, and kill.
Otherwise all my fancies
fly away like Icarus

Figure 2. A Dualist model of the causal sequence in visual perception. Light rays from a cat (as-perceived by an Experimenter) impinge on the Subject’s eye. Impulses travelling up the optic nerve produce a neural representation of the cat within S’s central nervous system. CNS activity, in turn, has a causal influence on S’s mind, resulting in a percept of a cat. It is central to this model that the percept (of a cat) in the mind of S is quite separate both from the neural representation (of a cat) in S’s brain and the cat (as-perceived by E) out-there in the world.
