Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah so you took the trade winds... I do envy you. There will be no flying fishes on our route.

The only book from gracq that i've read is... la forme d'une ville. I only remember the depiction of thursday afternoons that he would spend as a kid in the nearby countryside... I was way to young to understand what I was reading, but I see why he would be a great choice. I remember the rare pleasure of reading the same sentence over and over, for the sake of it and to thank him for his work.

I somehow look forward to this enless steering, to the moment where I won't have to think of what I am doing to do it. When it will be natural, like a second nature... BUt maybe gracq, musil, will make their force be felt....

Rien n'est gratuit en ce bas monde. Tout s'expie, le bien comme le mal, se paie tot ou tard. Le bien c'est beaucoup plus cher, forcement. Celine
