Hans Christian Andersen: One of my favorite authors of all times. A Danish writer writing in the century he wrote the Little Mermaid, The Emporer's Clothes and the Ugly Duckling (my favorite) amongst other great stories.
It's pouring rain again today. Whenever it rains incessantly, I think of Samuel Beckett's "En Attendant Godot". But I'm waiting for the rain to stop. Pretend it's April in Paris, toss on a trench, and head on out there, I tell myself.
