  1. excellent reminder of one of my favourite writers and love the illustration.

    1. I’m happy to hear that, chisrenney. Thank you for taking the time to let e know

  2. Everyone should have a pencil drawing selfie. Or, perhaps, it only works if you have a fabulously flamboyant mustachio!?

    1. Good news for the hipsters.

    1. I’m happy to hear he looks like someone… 🙂

  3. I’m going to go eat some salmon and get back to you on the memory and knowledge part.

  4. Kurt, thanks for sharing de Maupassant’s cheery view on existence. What can one expect, however, from a writer, along with others, who liked nothing better than to dine beneath the much maligned Eiffel Tower in order that he couldn’t see it. For a good belly laugh, I recommend Poe. [that last statement might be facetious, and I apologise to Poe’s spirit, as I think he was a wonderful writer]. Good likeness. You’ve captured the sadness, Kurt.

    1. Yeah, the Eiffel Tower wasn’t very well received, was it. Big fan of Poe – need to re-immerse myself in his magic.

  5. De Maupassant! One of my favourite short story writers. I’m torn between him and Saki.

    1. I’m a big fan of his short stories, too. But I’m still mulling over an opinion of the novel of his I just read (his last).

      1. Hi there 🙂 I haven’t read any novels by him. I never looked into anything beyond his short stories. I’ll look forward to hearing what you think of it

        1. Yeah, this is my first novel of his, too. The writing is brilliant, of course… but kind of over the top. There’s a link to the book down in the footer if you’re interested.

          1. I am, thank you! My mom turned me on to his stories years ago and I love each and every one, what a pro

          2. I have to take off now but I’m glad I got to say hey 🙂 take care

  6. OK, I’ll check the post office to see if it’s in. Please send me a message via the contact page so we can communicate via email. Thanks, erica.

Say it like you mean it
