A Dutchman's attempt at a romantic wedding proposal was simply smashing: http://cbc.sh/Q2fD7jH
A man in the Netherlands rented a crane, planning to descend in front of his girlfriend's bedroom window, play her a song and then pop the question. Instead the crane toppled over, smashing a large hole in the neighbours' roof.

REST IN PEACE,MARK STRAND !


"Keeping Things Whole"


In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.
When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body's been.
We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.


Mark Strand.

'DESIRE. . .' -A POEM BY ADONIS !
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


I summon angels and
ambulances—
I turn into water and flow in
the pool of my sorrows
or
I become a horizon and
climb the heights of desire.
I know that we die only once
and are many times reborn
And I know that death is
only useful if we live it
through.
I know that the hereafter is
this rose
this woman
and that a human face is the
other side of the sky.


ADONIS.

'LOVE SONG' -A POEM BY RAINER MARIA RILKE !
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

"Love Song"


How can I keep my soul in me, so
that
it doesn't touch your soul? How
can I raise
it high enough, past you, to other
things?
I would like to shelter it, among
remote
lost objects, in some dark and
silent place
that doesn't resonate when your
depths resound.
Yet everything that touches us,
me and you,
takes us together like a violin's
bow,
which draws one voice out of
two separate strings.
Upon what instrument are we
two spanned?
And what musician holds us in
his hand?
Oh sweetest song.


Rainer Maria Rilke.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,J.R.R. TOLKIEN !

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are
lost;
The old that is strong does not
wither,
Deep roots are not reached by
the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be
woken,
A light from the shadows shall
spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was
broken,
The crownless again shall be
king.

J.R.R. Tolkien

Grammar geeks: have you ever diagrammed a sentence? According to author Kitty Burns Florey, "There are two kinds of people in this world - the ones who loved diagramming, and the ones who hated it." Which camp do you fall under? http://on.nypl.org/1rdb1iA

PATRICK MODIANO,FRENCH NOVELIST,WINS THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE 2014 !


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

PATRICK MODIANO,French
Novelist,has won this year’s
nobel prize for literature!
The Swedish Academy Described
Modiano As The Modern Marcel
Proust And Hailed His Art of
Memory Employed In His
Writings!
The Academy Commended
Modiano “for the
art of memory with which he has
evoked the most ungraspable
human destinies and unlocked
the life-world of the
occupation.” !
Author of Over Two Dozen
Books, Patrick Modiano Was Little
Known For The Outside World As
Only Three or Four Of His Works
Have Been Available In English !
Born Just Two Weeks After The
End of The Second World War In
Paris, Modiano Has Always Been
Obsessed With This City And Its
History Especially During Its
Occupation!
Writing About The History of
Paris During The Occupation,
Modiano Often Mixes His Personal
History With That of Those Times!
The Moral Struggle That The
Common People of Paris Had To
Endure During The Reign of Nazis
Has Been A Recurring Theme Of
Almost All of His Novels !
Like Proust, Modiano Too, Likes
To Remember The Things Past
And In So Doing Trying To Make
A Connect With It.
Modiano’s Works Are, In Essence,
A Deep Meditation On The
Themes of Loss,Identity,Memory
And Time !
‘Missing Person’ , ‘Out of The
Dark’ Are Some Notable Works
Available In English!
Patrick Modiano Happens To Be
The 15th Frenchman To Have
Won Literature Nobel !
Modiano Also Wrote A Screenplay
For The Oscar Winning
Movie,LACOMBE LUCIEN !
A Reclusive By Nature,Patrick
Modiano, Is Rarely Seen In Talk
Shows or Symposia or Literary
Fests !
