it was ok
bookshelves: classics, nonfiction
Read in January, 1984

Another academic read, but this letters to Nora were amazing (and often filthy):

"Do you know what a pearl is and what any opal is? My should when you came sauntering to me first through those sweet summer evenings was beautiful but with the pale passionless beauty of a pearl. Your love has passed through me and now I feel like my mind something like an opal, that is full of strange uncertain hues and collars, of warm lights and quick shadows and of broken music."
