my brian eno's "oblique strategy" for today: "what were you really thinking about just now?"

the real answer? i miss Mili. living with her in stockholm... it's weird that i miss her as i rarely think of her. if i do, it's mostly remembering how we met in havana, 26 years ago

so i get another card instead

"take away the elements in order of apparent non-importance"

and went out for a walk. to buy ciggies. i was hit by the light. one of the few things that makes my life in england somehow enjoyable

i take a morning like today's over any tropical afternoon. and back home i sat down to write a few note for my script

there's a new one. manu. a sicario for andrej, the lithuanian mafioso, ex-kgb. he's a wounded spaniard bullfighter who became impotent and is a sub in the BDSM scene but quiet the sadist in his job. any job. i also worked on nadja. the love scenes when she met fernando in moscow. 1986. and later in miami beach. how do same people make love 20 years apart? are they really the same? <i guess that's the reason why Mili came to my mind>

and then i realised i'm almost late. need to get ready for cookery lessons. so i shaved in a rush. ironed my chef whites. and i'm waiting for the tub to fill: basil and sage this time. i have 1.5 hours to get ready. good thing the school is just 10 minutes walk away

brunch: brie and crackers. celery. a bunch of almonds. & a cup of cardamon tea  with a hint of ginger

welcome to havana upon tyne 3.0, let's fly together
