More Fun Times With Blake

Mention has been made of the ecentricities of William Blake, who also took advice from his dead brother, saw angels in a tree outside his home and once saw God outside his window.

A patron came by Blake's home one day to buy a book. Not finding Blake indoors, the patron went around back and found Blake and his wife, sitting completely naked in their garden, reading Milton's Paradise Lost.

"Come join us!" quoth Blake. "We are Adam and Eve."

No record is left of the patron's participation in this Edenic scene, or if said patron ever got his book.
