I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Tuesday Taster

Michael (Blue Cabin blog) asked about the author Alain Robbe-Grillet. Well here is the opening paragraph of his novel 'The Erasers':

'In the dimness of the café, the manager is arranging tables and chairs, the ashtrays, the siphons of soda water; it is six in the morning.'

More of Alain Robbe-Grillet (mentioned in my guest post on The Oliva Reader blog) in a later post.

I welcome your thoughts on this opening.

Hi aguja! I'm sorry, I've been away, so I'm only now catching up on your posts. What is the poem you wanted me to read?? I like this opening paragraph and I'd like to hear more about this author... :)

I'd like to read this again! you know, Robbe-Grillet is usually in the program at school in France but i feel perhaps at that time i didn't appreciate enough...so yes, definitely, a "classical" to revisit.
Thank you ! :-)

ps : i know what you mean about the weather...i can't even say we had a bit of autumn as just in a few days we had snow on the sierra...keep warm Ann !

Maelissa, the poem is the Sunday Snippet of this week. It is so lovely and written by a ten year old boy. Good to see you back. Spangle and I have decided to write in earnest over the winter. How about you?
