The Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague - February 2006

With the Burial Societies long since disbanded, Nathalie contemplates a ray of sunlight among the 100,000 or so souls piled up before her. It is the future - a business case for surviving for yet a few more years. The case pre-supposed the existence of Kit Kat Wrappers and Egg-Shell Skull - the Czech Republic's notorious Hip-Hop duo. It hinges on an inverted comma found on page 15 of Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling.

The afternoon was devoted mainly to garnet and crystal shopping.

Your back office called me today. I hadn't had time to put that bird song recording on the phone. I was quietly opening boxes in the background. Next door, when the phone stopped ringing, I could hear something that triggered a schoolyard memory --- I've no idea exactly what the sound was --- and all at once it was little lunch and I had no friends.

In that case, let's get quick smart down to the kavarna for a quail's egg and several afternoons full of creamy conversation.

Thursdays you'll usually find me at By then the bagels have mounted up nicely --- they've got a blind guy who sorts them, after a fashion, while listening to talking books; The Bride Stripped Bare was on the other day; embarrassing doesn't begin to describe it --- anyway, I just have to gesture with my stick as I come by the counter and the bagel-de-jour is plopped on the plate for me. These days, they say, I've got a bit slow, so if you do want to talk about some of the old stuff, it's a good idea to send me a postcard first with a title, maybe a couple of questions, and a line diagram outline. It helps me, you know.

Please tell me that again ... the part where granny Warsteinova found a lottery ticket in the laundry basket. For instance: why are the old men sitting close to the windows after retrieving their soup and bread? Or, If God could sing, who would notice his audiologo? The line diagram? That's the dotted line into the decision-maker. (Why talk to the monkey when you can talk to the organ-grinder?!)
