If a picture is worth a thousand words, music like this is worth a thousand pictures

tavenerIf thou hast shown mercy
unto man, o man,
that same mercy
shall be shown thee there;
and if on an orphan
thou hast shown compassion,
that same shall there
deliver thee from want.
If in this life
the naked thou hast clothed,
the same shall give thee
shelter there,
and sing the psalm:

En outsiders väg

Jag tror på den ensamma människan,
på henne som vandrar ensam,
som inte hundlikt löper till vittring,
som inte varglikt flyr för mänskovittring:
På en gång människa och anti-människa.

Hur nå gemenskap?
Fly den övre och yttre vägen:
Det som är boskap i andra är boskap också i dig.
Gå den undre och inre vägen:
Det som är botten i dig är botten också i andra.

Svårt att vänja sig vid sig själv.
Svårt att vänja sig av med sig själv.

Den som gör det skall ändå aldrig bli övergiven.
Den som gör det skall ändå alltid förbli solidarisk.
Det opraktiska är det enda praktiska
i längden.

My favourite book

brewers'sWell, sort of, at least.

For those of us who can’t get enough of English eccentrics, Brewer’s Rogues, Villains, Eccentrics: An A-Z of Roguish Britons Through the Ages by William Donaldson is probably the funniest book ever written. I mean, where else would you, for example, find an entry like this one?

Carlton, Sydney (1949- ), painter and decorator. Those who argue that bestiality should be treated with understanding had a setback in 1998 when Carlton, a married man from Bradford, was sentenced to a year in prison for having intercourse with a Staffordshire bull terrier, namned Badger. His defence was that Badger had made the first move. ‘I can’t help it if the dog took a liking to me,’ he told the court. This was not accepted.
