About me

Gender MALE

Occupation Curator of Collection
Location Paris, France
Introduction Why ? Answer : Why not ? Originally from a foreign country, now French and living in France for the past 20 years. Am still adapting to culture shock. Frequently go out scouring the countryside, camera in hand, looking for my dream house, for my dreamtime, for my dreams. Feel free to leave comments ! Comments are the icing on blogcake... Comments are the UFO in the twilight sky bearing news from other planets... Comments are rasberry vinegar in salad dressing... Comments are the cool balm of after-sun moisturizing lotion... Comments are the moment the band comes back out onstage to play an encore... Comments are the gleam in the eye across the room in a smoky bar... Comments are the rainbow after the rainstorm...

When you've got water stuck in your ear, how do you get it out?

I open up the archive.org web site, select one of among 5000 Grateful Dead live concerts listed there, turn the volume on my PC speakers way up, and let the vibrations evaporate the water out of my ear... when I can hear the music perfectly, then I know the water is gone. . .
