Hi, I was just having some fun, not trying to really be political. Say, since you like Dostoevsky, have you read the one called "Demons", which is also under the title, "The Possessed"? I traded in all my D, and got all the new translation versions of his books. Supposedly the new translation is awesome and is now considered the standard when reading Dostoevsky. The translators are a couple named Pevear and Volholinsky. Anyway, I loved the book, It was written in 1872, smack in the middle of his final five books that begins with "C & P" and ends with "The Brothers K." So, I'm gonna send you an invite to my bookclub, can't hurt right?
It appears you are reading 25 books at once - your memory must be better than mine. I find if I start reading 2 or more books at any one time i get characters confused and think Alice from (Adventures in Wonderland) is getting ready to put Tyler Durder (Fight Club) in a headlock. As you are reading Greek Mythology and the Great Gatsby do you ever dream about Zeus throwing Lightning Bolts at Jay Gatsby? Maybe I'm just terrible at departmentalizing...
The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work.
Then the faith and belief that it can work.
Then hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt or disbelief.
