1. That would have made for a less satisfying joke.

2. I'm afraid that I'm not that kind of doctor!

thank you, mary. most of these pictures are undisciplined, hastily created. explain it those who can, but totally unsuitable lines and shapes are occasionally thrown more or less haphazardly into a picture - just seems so crazy. yet when it's done a slight hint of leonard's soul can still be seen climbing through the mess. i am of the opinion that this has very little to do with me.

the hoped-for liberty failed to materialise, but i at least have now better access to a computer - and there is a real likelihood of freedom in the first half of the coming week. rest assured, my first expedition will be to the vinmonopolet. meanwhile, here is a profile showing the precise contours of leonard's face.

Thanks..."Beautiful Losers." Would have thought that line would have stayed with me when I read it, but it is not even marked in my notes. Another reason to stop by here now and then!

it was primarily through leonard's literature (novels, poetry and prose) that i took an interest in his work, and have most of it digitised. my first hard copy of 'beautiful losers' is in such a fragile state, pages scribbled over by myself and others, including leonard and a couple of his girlfriends, that it is no longer fit to use. bought a better and newer edition in an oslo bookstore earlier this year. some people who have lead sheltered lives hate that novel because of the filthy language, but not me :-)

it's always encouraging to learn that you or other people around the world find reasons to stop by. unless a person is using a proxy server, their ISP address reveals the location from where they are posting :-)

I've never been able to enjoy drinking wine from a box. It seems to take all the fun out of the experience: I absolutely love the activity of removing the cork and that wonderful "pop" sound it makes. It is even somewhat enjoyable to remove a screw-top (if that's what there is), which makes a satisfying cracking sound when the seal is broken. And then, there is the bottle itself -- it has such an elegant shape, and there is something lovely about pouring a glass of wine from a bottle: there is the visual element (one can see the wine in the bottle -- most bottles, anyway), there is the sound it makes as it flows out of the bottle and into the glass, etc..

I have always found these various rituals and sensory aspects to be integral to my overall experience and enjoyment of having a glass of wine (or two...): it becomes an event, a special occasion, something to savour. For me, pressing a spigot on a box completely fails to capture the magic of the moment, and thus drinking wine becomes as lacklustre as having a glass of water from the tap.

Of course, as "they" "say" these days, YMMV.

i know what you mean, lisa. i have licked the edges of three king-sized rizlas to make a decent paper bed, adding a little mattress of tobacco, broken the corner from a soap-sized slab of gorgeous red leb, softened it by placing it into a teaspoon with a match beneath, crumbled a generous line of the resin onto the mattress, rolled and sealed the giant joint, inserting a roach mouthpiece, twisted the other end into a point to prevent loose tobacco falling out, then sat back, fired the thing up and passed it around while listening to 'piper at the gates of dawn'. as much as i enjoyed pulling on that R101-shaped creation, the atmosphere with the red lightbulb, the insane chatter - it was actually the ritual of making the joint, the anticipation, the thought of breaking the law, the overture to complete relaxation that was the real magnet :-)

Ever tried drinking wine out of a black glass? A very interesting way of drinking, when all you can rely on is the taste of the wine, and your nose. Forget about color, thickness, structure, reflections of candlelight in your glass, sweetness/irritation of the shape of the bottle/box ; no worries about what wine to drink with what kind of meat, etc., only the taste of the drink. Good luck

I do have some wine glasses that are not transparent, and I quite like them -- not because I cannot see the wine, but because they are really groovy wine glasses! That is yet another thing for me to enjoy when I drink wine -- the selection of the glass and thus the various visual and tactile sensations that I get from it.

And of course, in addition to the glass itself, as well as enjoying the ritual of opening and pouring the wine as described previously, I actually very much enjoy the wine itself, quite significantly, in fact! Ultimately, the wine itself is the best part of the experience (unless it is a really poor bottle!), but one can still enjoy every little moment leading up to and surrounding the actual drinking and savouring of the wine, can't one? Living each moment to the fullest, and all that? :D
