I'm a sort of creative person, seeking the meaning of life . Hard to capture the essence of the mind/brain/soul - but I delight in arguing with ultra-materialists on consciousness. Ah! the smell of a rose and its redness, the smell of a fine wine, a sunset, - great stuff, and all subjective. Oh yeah and actually am Scorpio by 4 hours according to expert astrologer friend - blogger auto-star-sign system missed the fact that I'm on the cusp. Though I agree with Casius when he said "the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings".

Nice little jaunt to Brussels. Pleasant to trot up the stairs in the Atomium. Iron crystal? Had to look it up – metal bond with cloud of electrons on egg carton atoms… Otherwise nice to see the old friends doing do well in the Belgian capital. It rained almost non-stop, which was not what you want at the end of May. But we had other pursuits to distract us from that – like playing with M’s new dog and eating his curries and playing with his kids. Yes, all in all a salubrious outing. Even the trains were on time and smooth and comfortable. Apart from the fact that we had to take a smoking reservation on one leg of return trip. It was pissing down at the Mannikin Piss – he had a raincoat on, though.
