Please, don't try to pull both my legs at once when speaking of languages. How about Romanesque? I think it a lot more appropriate and artistic, don't you? How about if you don't put so very many rules? You seem to be trying to rule me. ME! Better relax a bit. Seven messages in two days is a lot, even for you! Haven't got time to keep up this way! Is your Spanish improving? By now you're probably almost done with the "A", aren't you? Go on, don't give up. The harder you try, the sooner you'll speak it as a native! Nice picture, nice flowers, nice pages. Sorry to say I like Milton and I'm not irritable, but sharp... in Spanish. [ Weren't you bothered by my observing your gentlemanly attitude!] Needn't strive for a gentleman. I'm just waiting for the day we can speak Spanish face to face!!! ;) > Hi! firstname.lastname@example.org > you will like this.

I had some German (yesp; not Latin, I know), and French for grad work (required) but it is mostly gone now. I find your English to be no problem so I am saddened that you will write me only on condition that I write back in a Latin-based language. Sort of obstacle, challenge, that makes me want to rush out to learn Spanish or bursh up on my French... can we settle for a language we both might struggle with, say Romany or Basque? Do write. I like intelligence and you have it! http://www.picadorusa.com/picador/images/authors/hboll.jpg Lordy, lord: we are a bit off put here, no? Don Q is marvy but, alas, by now a bit tendentious for my tastes. Joyce is still about as good as it gets in our time; Prouse close and perhaps even as good. And then back to epics: Homer, Virgil, Dante, and yes, Milton, though I am sure your sensibility would not like this one, right> I had read Boll some time ago and still prefer Mann, the novellas and The Magic Mountain, but now find him a bit much, though Death in Venice still rings the bell. Octavio Paz fine... so there. I do believe I am a gentleman, or at least try my best to be one, and truly hope I have not said anything that in any way has upset you. And if I had: forgive me. I did not mean it. You are very nice, sensitive, bu a bit irritable (ok: not a gentleman for saying that but you ve doubtless been told this before, right> Write and I will try to be a kinder, gentler, guy who is most accepting of your Vision and your Eclectism....
