A word from our sponsor idol

And now a word from the man on the left of my blog header.  (The jig is up!)  An ex of mine kindly gave me Volume 1 of Aldous Huxley’s complete essays.  I’ve been reading them.  Boy, did this man have a talent for satire.  Anyway, here is a favorite passage of mine:

I could give many excellent reasons for my dislike of large dinner-parties, soirées, crushes, routs, conversazioni, and balls.  Life is not long enough and they waste precious time; the game is not worth the candle.  Casual social intercourse is like dram-drinking, a mere stimulant that whips the nerves but does not nourish.  And so on.

‘The Traveler’s-Eye View,’ Aldous Huxley
