"The Salon is closing today. And already, as I am leaving it, on the way home for the last time, I want to go back to look up a violet, a green, or certain blue tones which I believe I should have seen better, more unforgettably."
Rainer Maria Rilke
Our mantle clock stopped at around 3:15 o'clock. I mean really stopped. The hands are frozen, and the pendulum won't tick/tock. Given the end of the year business, it is curious. Time to hunt up a good repairman. I have to admit that I am not a fan of the year 2013. 2014 is a more attractive number to me, probably because I like the number 4. Anyway, youse all enjoy the Eve and be careful out there. Remember to sing "Auld Lang Syne."
