Hi Rick, (et.al.)
Not quite lost, but afraid that TSE no longer has much to offer me and
looking elsewhere (and outside of the scribbled arts) for inspiration. Music
has had most of my attention of late (especially making it), and my new year
'good intentions' (is this a European or maybe even Dutch thing?) are to
raise writing and romance up my priorities list. (Previously topping the
charts were my house, my work and making music).
I'm hoping to do the second by telling those few people I meet per annum
that I actually have a romantic interest in, that I actually have a romantic
interest in them (say, the "I like you so very much" approach in Joe Black).
That should increase my chances considerably, I think, but I've lacked
courage and experience in that area, having had the fortune that some girls
take the initiative.
Pour le premier, il y a des bons auspices - I've just moved to my own office
at work, and it has a window directly opposite (say, 10m across) the
livingroom of our most famous and respected literary author, Harry Mulisch
(recently his "Discovery of Heaven" has been released as a motion picture,
by Jeroen Krabbé, whom we all know and love primarily for his quality of
playing an arrogant bastard, i.e. himself. ;-) )
Who knows seeing him drawing the curtains occasionally or entertaining some
famous guests or smoking his pipe will inspire me to pick up on my own
