why bother? i don't consider mean folk worth any more of my energy than i can avoid parting-with. i just try to steer clear of such folk. unfortunately this means that i must stay out of public places for the most part. rudeness is an epidemic. it is only getting worse. "Taupey" was right about how ...

i don't know that "spartan" applies. i live in a trailer out in the woods, and the inside is an unholy disorganized mess. i am an incurable slob. there is a narrow path between piles of old newspapers and sacks of prescription meds. i have a rudimentary audio system whose wires rest atop furniture [...

I like Ravel's "Pavane for a Dead Princess" (I've heard Ravel hated it) and Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet Suite" and Debussy's mood music ( The Girl with the Flaxen Hair) and Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra and quite a few others. I don't see their relationship to reality. Also Songs of the Auverne...

I wonder if a person from, say, LA can tell the difference between NY and Boston. I would assume so.

i have always had an irrational fear of bees or of any kind of insect. i literally freak out whenever one gets inside the house.
