I am sure I am not the first person to realize this, then go looking and come back satisfied and ready for more. What? Your archives, your book archives. I never read Shantaram and for some reason, who knows, I remembered that recently and decided that I would. And I figured you would have, and there would be long assortment of tidbits to nibble on, and questions to ask myself as I read, and to pore over and wonder: what would I say? So it is fun and a great way to expand one's enjoyment of a book. (For me I am wandering around a long still table and you are all still there, sitting and chatting about the book, only we are in different time warps -- you in the past, me in the future.)
First off... excellent taste in photos...
What an awesome post....
yes I often wander around the still tables in society ... in poetry, theatre, and dance we call them Tableaux ... you see them as stagnant arrangements of energy and look for the transfer of power hoping to understand what the dialogue really is in the scenario
What a great vision you have... am thinking of Carravaggio right now
ps. dont bother with Shantaram... just watch Midnight Express if you want to get a feel for what its all about... that guy has an ego a building tall trying to make a bridge from there to here with his lofty vision
You on the other hand may be a genius.... keep posting!!
