"The worst tragedy for a poet is to be admired through being misunderstood"--Jean Cocteau.

I wracked my brain to remember the name of a particular Cocteau play tonight. When I remember it, I'll read it again--as well as the letters between Cocteau and Maritain.

I read a magazine about tropical fish. I am better at looking appreciatively as such things than I am at raising them.

Expect the unexpected is the phrase that appeals to me tonight.
