Jeebus.
Tucked away in Barrio Norte, Buenos Aires is a beautiful bookshop called El Ateneo Grand Splendid. It is built within the almost 100-year-old Grand Splendid Theater, which opened in 1919. The theatre was later converted into a cinema and eventually, in 2000, it was converted into the El Ateneo Grand Splendid bookshop, which currently welcomes over one million visitors each year.

"Show me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are"
By the time I got to high school, home economics classes had fallen out of favor: the boys, of course, considered them too 'girly,' and the girls considered them enforcers of traditional gender roles wholly out of place in modern society.

"... I took a trip on a sailing ship, and when I reached Jamaica I made a stop."

There has been a Sephardi presence in the Caribbean for nearly as long as there has been a European presence in the islands. Many of the dispersed Jews of Iberia and the Italies plied maritime trades, mercantile and strictly naval. The value of a skilled navigator, pilot, or ship's doctor was sufficient incentive to turn a blind eye to what might have been otherwise questionable religious practices -- especially in the more liberal environment of the island colonies.

I prefer my recreational drugs be made from ink and trees

When asked about my relative indifference to chemical alterants of all sorts, I have always been quick to point out that books, scuba, tajiquan and my own rampant synaesthesia fill that niche quite nicely, thankyouverymuch.

I care enormously more about what people do than what they believe.

"There is a kind of lazy pleasure in useless and out-of-the-way erudition"
I offer this here by way of explanation for most of what I post.
