Last night the television provided a pleasant treat--a showing of the movie "Trio", which films three Somerset Maugham short stories. One of my favorite Maugham stories, "The Verger", was first up. "The Verger" is in the curious genre of "punchline stories", but it works wonderfully even so.
In the third film, "the Sanitorium", camera's kindness to Jean Simmons was a fun to see. Some people are their own special effect.
I must get a second pair of good headphones, as listening via mobile phone and tablet makes me want to hear things a bit better. I don't want to practice shuttle diplomacy with my Grado headphones between my computer and my other devices.
I wonder how much time in a bottle would cost.
