Outtakes From a Fellini Movie
Totally sleep deprived at two thirty in the morning, I look at the crazy Russian who is doing a hand stand against my wall. "That's the one flaw of your apartment. No place to do a handstand." I begin to wonder if I have already fallen asleep. Of course, he would wake me up if I had. Perhaps I was in the hallucination stage of sleeplessness, but as mysteriously as my mind works, I can't think that I would ever be deranged enough to imagine a Russian doing a hand stand against the wall of my apartment. Yet there he is, inverted, legs casually crossed, shirt almost obscuring his face.
And to think, just three hours before he was giving me a lecture on how normal he is.
