Deep One Perfect Morning

Well, almost every morning seems to be Perfect nowadays... but today, the "velvet anxiety syndrome" seems to be overshadowing me. Better get my head off things and place plastic covers to my recently bought books. Unread, half-read or soon to be read or not, I still would like to preserve the existing damages, little rips (especially from the second-hand ones) and wouldn't like to add more. Besides, I just love the smell of plastic cover and aged book pages... a little dusty and yet, a crisp smell of brownish yellowish paper. hmm... I'm really not into newly printed books, but it would also depend on the writer anyway.

So, here is my list of my new brain candies (in order of aquirement) and a short glimpse of their stories.

"Lighthouse" - Eugenia Price © 1971
A novel of a man and a dream. The main character was originally chronicled in the author's novel New Moon Rising. His dream was to leave the cold New England and make a life for himself in the magnificent, untamed South. In his persuit, he encounters exotic people and places and a beautiful and strong-willed young girl who comes to share the dream and the life he has chosen.

"Tales of Mystery and Terror" - Edgar Allan Poe © 1990
Thirteen stories of suspense and the supernatural. A chilling enthralling collection from the Master, need I say more? Includes The Pit and the Pendulum, The Black Cat, The Sphinx, the Oblong Box and more.

"My Bloody Valentine - Couples Whose Sick Crimes Shocked the World" - Patrick Blackden © 2002
A sinister catalogue of notorious couples. From desperados Starkweather and Fugate, whom the film Natural Born Killers is based, to world famous cases and also lesser-known but equally shocking crimes. Cool title with an interesting theme. Haha... *Velvet now reflects the faint light through a sharp knife held in her right hand with eyes wide open...

"Casanova in love" - Andrew Miller © 1961
A seductive and witty rendering of history's most famous lover. In 1763, Casanova arrives in England seeking rest from his endless amours. But before long, the lure of a pretty face proves too hard to resist and he reverts to his old ways. But is he the hunter or the hunted? hmm... a good read for real Stalkers and stalkers-wannabe.

"The Metamorphoses" - Ovid © 1958
To sounds of heav'nly harps she dies away,
And melts in visions of eternal day.
Far other dreams my erring soul employ,
Far other raptures of unholy joy.

Ovid, banished in 8 AD, accused of corrupting the youth. Unlike Virgil and Homer, he was interested in women and love. He sometimes treated his immortal subjects irreverently, but he added to their dilemmas the warmth of human understanding. And yes, he influenced Chauser and Shakespheare.

"Five Comedies of Aristophanes" © 1955
The Birds, The Frogs, The Clouds, The Wasps, and Lysistrata

Aristophanes, born 445 BC, is the greatest of the Greek comic poets. His comedies, for all their exuberant farce and creative fantasy, are always seriously concerned with the major political and moral issues of his time. A comedy of Aristophanes is a wild through highly intellectual farce and a dramatized debate in which the persons represent opposing principles. Makes me get in touch with my cerebral hunger.

note: Call me in an hour? Well you better do it now! I have an interview tomorrow and I haven't slept yet. Imagining You*.* with Robert Smith's hair... show me show me show me!

Just thinking ... that perhaps you should appreciate good people who can enhance your life, instead of ignoring and casually throwing them away. Your cynical musings have much less resonance when you treat decent people so awfully.
