I know Joel that you do not mean to exclude me !!! … Please do not worry about it !!! … My speaking English is just like 8 -10 year child … it does not permit me to discuss here my favorite books …

Anyway, your question have put me in a hard position … The last novel I have read was “Lolita” (1996) - Nabokov – I can say only best word about the story and the author style – I am sure that Froid and Ung would be very glad to read that story. The last movie I have seen was 1986 … the last theater I visited was … I do not remember when it was … I even have not a TV at home …

So, this late evening I am asking myself why have I lost interest about all that …. Thinking about it, some thoughts are in my mind … When you read novels, watch TV or movie, when you go to the theater … it seems people do it in other to feed their illusions, to support their hopes, to find answers of the questions exiting them … but when you have not illusions, when the hopes are … how can I say … lost … the science brings a pleasure unknown for most of the people, but usually it gives terrible answers of the questions exiting you, it seems it is better to avoid all that … I really do not know …

Anyway … except my special books, the history is still of my interest – in the years of communism history was absolutely distort here, so now I need to fill in this “white” spot in my mind … except some history books, weekends I spend with the Important One for me, evenings I love to watch the History channel from time to time – there is interesting things in it, never mind at a dilettante level – it is just fine for me …

But the music excites me very much – I have a little music education and very often music makes my skin to prick … especially I love the old polyphonic music - Bach, Teleman and Handel … It influences directly on my spinal cord and it is not possible to describe the feelings infesting into me …

Ah yes … it is moving …. Here is one of my favorite of course it sounds awful in YouTube:


There is a nice disk with Handel’s organ & orchestra concerts, but Maya lost my one somewhere.

Lolita is worth to be read … No many authors have such a great style, having in mind it is not his mother language, it sounds great even in BG translation. There is a movie on this book but I have not watched it. I have heard that the main role in it is playing by one of my favorite English actors … Jeremy Irons … if my memory serves … It seems I have to try to find and watch it some day …

Children, children, ......., relax. Life is good.
Let the birds sing and the bells ring.
The snow is starting to melt and winter is almost over

Have a little snack, listen to some rock and roll and get some sleep Borislav.
If you don't sleep you will be useless later.

I like to go to sleep listening to Red Norvo sometimes
