Literature
Menschliches, Allzumenschliches
“I heard quite an intriguing theory in London,” the vampire said as he sipped the Earl Grey he brought back from the said trip.  “According to the good doctor, in each of us there are two natures.  If this primitive duality of man – good and evil – can be housed in separate identities, life will be relieved of all that is unbearable.  What do you think?”
“That is rather radical,” Erik’s dubious expression was obvious even through the mask he wore.
“By eliminating the roots of evil, he is convinced that the world can be rid of things like violence, murder and war.”
A cynical smirk touched Erik’s misshapen lips.  “And just how does he propose to execute this grand plan of his?”
“His approach is very scientific.  He invented a formula.  But he is stalled at the moment, because he cannot get permission for a test on human subject.”
“Are you vo

Literature
night flight
The vampire found the master of the underground kingdom engrossed in an old leather-bound book.  He must have heard the uninvited guest's arrival, for no happenings within the Opera Populaire went unnoticed by its resident ghost.  But Erik refused to look up until after finishing the chapter he was reading and asked abruptly.  "Have you been to Zipangu?"
"Zipangu?" the vampire blinked, slightly taken aback.  "No, I am afraid not.  Though I do find the orient intriguing, the fact that it is an island country makes me a bit hesitant, to be honest."  With a slight lilt to his voice he added:  "And good evening to you, too, Erik."
"What does it being an island nation have to do with...," Erik began, ignoring the greeting, only to stop himself.  When he first met the vampire, Erik went through a phase of devouring any books that had a slight mention of the supernatural in an attempt to solve the mystery who stil

leading a life of quiet desperation

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 20, 2013, 10:44 AM
"To live lightheartedly but not recklessly; to be gay without being boisterous; to be courageous without being bold; to show trust and cheerful resignation without fatalism - this is the art of living."
- Jean de La Fontaine

Easier said than done, of course.

"I can imagine no more comfortable frame of mind for the conduct of life than a humorous resignation."
- William Somerset Maugham


Thank you for your visit, faves & comments.
