    •  It is (4+ / 0-)

      The whole Book of Sands is magical, and if you have not read it you should.

      Borges and Federico García Lorca had a bit of a love/hate thing going on. Borges swore that Lorca was over blown with his language; Lorca was quick to point out that Borges was not Latin enough and lived in America. But for some reason they had an obsession with each other. Curious.

    •  My Son Doesn't Get It (4+ / 0-)

      As lovingly as I have tried, he simply does not see what I find so compelling.

      What's odd is that we both love mathematics.  He's of the remorseless logic school while I run with the flash of insight crowd: kind of a sativa/indica dynamic we have going there.
