FELLOW TRAVELERS, let us embark upon a journey into obscure caverns, steep ravines, unconscious mysteries, and cryptic conundrums that constitute the dream world of Lakshmi Jackson. Before we set sail into her deep domain, it will be useful to survey the seaworthiness of our vessel, plug the leaks, check the tarps, test for rope frays, and, as they say, batten down the hatches. If we are to achieve a thorough illumination of Ms. Jackson’s inner landscape, we must take inventory of the various constructs we may encounter along the way.
