I am so disappointed that I cannot attend the upcoming ConTeXt meeting
in Brejlov, but as I type this I am remembering vividly the hospitality
and affection shown by all at the 2010 meeting, especially Pavel's
father, to this tee-totalling vegetarian---not something that lands up
at the Brejlov Inn too often, I imagine!
The reason for my absence this year is that I will be heading to India
shortly to conduct what is known as "antim yatra" (final journey) in
Hindi for my mother; I'll leave the details of what that implies to
those who wish to search on DuckDuckGo ;).
Anyway that is strictly an aside to this post. You'll have to forgive
me if I am feeling sentimental, but Prague does, as it has throughout
its history, enter one's soul. To walk through its streets is to be
smitten by it for life. Recently I picked up a book that I would like
to share as it may help provide a context to those travelling through
Prague on their way to Brejlov.
Prague: Capital of the Twentieth Century
A Surrealist History
by Derek Sayer
All the best to those who are attending. I am envious!
