Paris Diaries: The Best Thing You Will Ever Put in Your Mouth
Will be in Paris.

The Adventure Begins with Shelfari!
Shelfari is one of those fun ways to waste time. Essentially the concept is simple. You go on line and add the titles of books in your library. You can add notes or buy books. You peruse other titles by friends or by groups. You can make your own group or join an already existant one. I'm there (guess how I'm listed) and I snookered Bakerina into joining. It's one of those sites that wastes hours of your life with no real point except, for me, to look at my list and think, "Wow there's a whole lot of angry men on that list. A lot."

So go there and waste some time while waiting for your next Paris installment.

A Glorious Disaster of the Soul
"The spiritually more and more autonomous (therefore more and more lonely) worships Eros and his twin deity within the romantic imagination, Death, as the only god capable of breaking down the barriers of his individualist isolation. Therefore love becomes tragedy: overcharged with unmanageable spiritual demands it needs must surge ahead of any human relationship. In its purest manifestations, romantic love is a glorious disaster of the soul, carrying frustration in its wake. For what the romantic lover seeks is not really beloved. Intermixed with his erotic craving, inarticulate, diffuse, and yet dominating it, is the desire for spiritual salvation. Even a 'happy ending' spells profound disillusionment for the romantic expectation"-Erich Heller in Franz Kafka

I just had to share this quotation as I think it explains a lot.
