Just a quick post to let your know that I am alive and well and painting ... and reading ... and enjoying my insomnia by making love to a small clock radio in the middle of the night. The radio waves seem to go directly into my body ... my heart hums ... I wonder if it is safe. CBC Overnight is far better than CBC daytime programming.
Last night I heard all about attempts to translate Gunter Grass' newest offering ... an untranslatable book about the Brothers Grimm and their failed attempt to create a German dictionary. They died before getting to the middle of the alphabet. Grass has structured his book like a dictionary and to do a proper translation is impossible without creating gibberish from a masterpiece.
My staircase is going slowly. I continue to live in the chaos of a small renovation.
Must cut this short as I have to prepare for my class this afternoon and put a third coat on a section of railing.
Have a great Wednesday and a fine end of the week. Spring is in the air even if ice is still underfoot.
