(should I say unaethered?) my past L-posting on a Magritte painting,
in connection with Gradus, his umbrella and black hat. She added a few
wikisnippets on its title " la Golconda". It seems to have everything
to do with vampires ( the good ones, I mean, not the Vsleslavs).




As usual, our dear JM has left out a bit of connective tissue that
keeps her reference to "la Golconda" from being the complete non-
sequiter it appears to be. The name of the Magritte painting is in
fact LA GOLCONDA (don't ask me why). Actually when I found an enormous
jpeg on the web I saw quite clearly that the hatted "raining" men are
NOT caring umbrellas. Tant pis (more's the pity)!
