    Hi Arlo, Platt...

    Great post! A keeper! As you know, my take on "code of art" is simply
    "pursuit of beauty in all endeavors." There's an ordinary way to
    drive a bus and a beautiful way, as you so beautifully described.
    Your post shows how to reach for the "aesthetic" in the aesthetic
    continuum. Many thanks.

    Platt, thanks for kind words. But are you saying you don't keep ALL
    my posts? :-)

    Richard Lederer proposes the word "covivant", saying "Fashioned from
    the Latin 'co', 'together', and French 'vivant', 'living', covivant
    is bilingually enduring and endearing. Its Latinateness communicates
    a sense of permanence and stability, and its Frenchness lends the
    perfume of romance."

    And you get to keep the "C" :-)

    msh says:
    Yes, I like "covivant." More romantic than "companion," and much
    more beautiful than the ugly "sigot." Thanks.
