I'm impressed!  My knowledge of Hy, and Clojure at this point, is not that

I'd like to get into a spiral where I go Python / Jython, Java, Clojure,
around and around in a spiral.

I don't want to "outgrow" OO (object oriented) as the price I pay for
diving more deeply into a LISP (Clojure / Hy / Scheme / Racket).

They should work together; positive synergies abound.  I agree SICP is an
all time classic, as is TAOCP.
