Saturday for Lunch

Saturday for Lunch

Sometimes there is no better lunch than a great book. Now I am having Saturday from Ian McEwan for lunch. The prologue of the book Saturday, “For instance?” appears to be appropriate for the visit of Mr. Bush to Guatemala. Here’s a little fragment: “… Which spent military billions against foreign enemies but would not pay for order at home…” You can almost read the the whole page if you click to enlarge it.

Have a great weekend, full of pleasant events. We will not be so lucky in Guatemala.

  • Great lunch & a sad one too. There are unquestionable facts about this quote. For a more gentle words, here is a quote by Don Juan from Castaneda’s first book, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge:
    “For me there is only the traveling on the paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge for me is to traverse its full length. And there I travel, looking, looking, breathlessly”.

  • i knew bush was in south america, they boowed him but didn’t know he was comeing your way. huncher down and don’t go near where he is, the man is not well liked and i fear for him. if you listen to him talk for a while you will be surprised at how dumb he is, after he was elected in 2004 and the news men had been singing his praised ,he said something really stupid and one news caster said you know bush is sort of stupid. i thought, you are just finding that out? i like the photo of the park.

    I am glad that patsy poor recognizes that President Bush is only human. I think that many people feel, because of the power U.S Presidents yield, incorrectly believe that U.S. Presidents are super-human. I think most people will agree that EVERYONE says stupid things every now and then. As much as President Bush is in the spot light, most of what he says is captured by the media.

    What patsy poor fails to realize is that there is a difference of being stupid and saying stupid things. I can guarantee that President Bush is far more intelligent than most people – me included.

    I love Guatemala, for the beauty of its people, its culture, and its geography. It is my hope that President Bush’s visit to Guatemala will help Guatemala somehow – not hurt it. I fear for Mr. Bush’s safety too – where ever he travels to. He is the President of my country, and even though I did not vote for him in the last election, I support him.

    To bash someone because the media took advantage of something stupid they once uttered is simply mean.

  • Rudy, I’m freaking out with this man…
    I hope he just comeback to his place and stay quite there for a while!
    have a nice weekend over all! Don’t let them spoilt it for you!

  • Beautiful photo. Love the shadows on the pages. (The white space on the book’s pages adds to the mood.)

    Shannon–you’re kidding, right? Bush is a deeply unintelligent man…stupid because he says stupid things and does stupid things…ever research his record, say, from his undergraduate years until now? And it is precisely his stupidity that has allowed him to become so easily manipulated by the neo-cons.

    Worse than being stupid, he is reckless and dangerous.

    Patsy Poor didn’t “fail to realize” anything. You, on the other hand….

  • Very nice shadows

  • Carraol, thanks for sharing the quote from Carlos Castaneda.
