Today is Wednesday, 10 February 2010.

Actually, it's Thursday.

Last night, I composed a photograph in honor of the 120th anniversary of the birth of Boris Pasternak, which is 10 February. After failing for an hour to determine how to transport it from my digital camera to this site, I temporarily up gave, and sat down with one of the dogs to commiserate.

Obviously, I should have had a child ten years ago, who could have said, "Dad, you're such a doofus. It's easy. Watch".


If you've not read Doctor Zhivago, do so now, preferably in a hardcover from your local used bookstore.

Zhivago is one of the great treasures of human civilization. The movie also.

From a certain angle, this scene capsulizes the tragedy of the 20th Century.
