Enough to go round

... and why would I come to think of Bulgakov?


  1. The Master and Margarita. Was a time I would colour my eyebrows green; never did lay hands on a flying broom though. :)

    I expect you know 'Sympathy for the Devil' by The Rolling Stones is based on that book?

  2. Just listened to it while watching some scenes of 'Master and Margarita'. :)

    So you did never enjoy a ride on a broom, so far? Well, a flying carpet is, of course, a bit more comfortable ...

  3. I'm so grateful for this post and your comments. I didn't know that I could see some scenes of "The Master and Margarita" on YouTube. And I had missed "Sympathy for the Devil" with the Rolling Stones.

    The book is fascinating and very intriguing. I wish I could read it in Russian, But it's a bit like Ulysses. Unless one knows the cultural environment, a lot is missed. Maybe watching the movie will help me.

    Une si belle marguerite. Ma fleur favorite, Sean. Thanks! :)

  4. Pah I was thinking of Country Doctor's notebook!

  5. A flying carpet sounds good. I'd take a few cushions, some chocolate biscuits and a book I'd be delighted. Much better than a bus. :)
