My question was what Michael really thought of his sister JANET.
To copy her few nymphs aspired; Her virtues fewer swains admired; So stars, beyond a certain height, Give mortals neither heat nor light. Yet some of either sex, endowed With gifts superior to the crowd, With virtue, knowledge, taste, and wit, She condescended to admit; With pleasing arts she could reduce Men's talents to their proper use; And with address each genius hold

He exasperates you with his fool performances to the point of dancing cursing wild crying rage, and then accepts your--well, reproofs--so meekly that you come off the boil as though some one had removed you from the fire, and you feel like a low-browed thug.Suppose your particular tenderfoot to be named Algernon. Suppose him to have packed his horse loosely--they always do--so that the pack has slipped, the horse has bucked over three square miles of assorted mountains, and the rest of the train is

'At your service, sir,' replied John Willet.
'You can give my horse good stabling, can you, and me an early dinner (I am not particular what, so that it be cleanly served), and a decent room of which there seems to be no lack in this great mansion,' said the stranger, again running his eyes over the exterior.
'You can have, sir,' returned John with a readiness quite surprising, 'anything you please.''It's well I am easily satisfied,' returned the other with a smile, 'or that might prove a hardy pledge, my friend.' And saying so, he dismounted, with the aid of the block before the door, in a

"Yes, I have them."
"It is your turn to speak; I am listening like a child when his mother begins the tale of /Le Grand Serpentin Vert/."
"I count the young man in question in that group of our acquaintances which we are wont to style our friends. He comes of a good family; he is a man of infinite parts and ill-luck, full of excellent dispositions and most charming conversation; young as he is, he is seen much, and while awaiting better things, he dwells in Bohemia.

Michael admires Janet and realizes that they both have unique talents. They are both graced with an abundance of aintelligence, beauty and wit. They are both able to bewitch the world with their performances and artistic talents. They are almost twinlike in this respect.
emotional influences and base passions
We all know that Michael enjoyed teasing Janet and had a lot of fun trying to wind her up. She would almost get to boiling point and then he would make her laugh by playing very humble. So I guess he really enjoys her company and they are still like two kids having fun hanging out together.
spiritual influences and feelings of love:
Michael is a very generous person and so is his sister. They are both willing to share their worldly goods with strangers and to provide material goods for those less fortunate than themselves. They are always willing to give the underdog a chance, e g the one who makes mistakes and looses his "packing".So I guess they both love each others humanitarian side.And if they happen to make mistakes they are quick to forgive each other...
Influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world
They discuss other people/relationships with each other in order to find out what makes them tick.They both seem to be drawn to artistic people- those that dwell in Bohemia! They trust each others opinions and this makes them a strong team against the enemy.
To sum up then- Michael and Janet are like twins- two sides of the same coin.
Remember It's not easy being green and I am very green at this stuff!
