A Weakness

Mythological scenes are a weakness of mine, appreciating the magic and mystery of a pastoral life. But if I were truly there I might miss Coca Cola and Charmin . . . and my iPad. 

So maybe it's best that I gaze at these kinds of images from the armchair in my den . . . on my iPad.

Camping during a rainstorm will also dampen (pardon the pun) the romance of the pastoral ideal.

Hi Anita!

Thanks so much for your enthusiasm! Yes, Homer and I go way back.

Hi M.D.!

I dunno, being with a beautiful woman in the rain is one of my romantic ideals.

Thomas - What can your i-pad give you that living in a world of perpetual summer, nude forest nymphs, river gods and the brotherhood of wild animals cannot ?

Just wondering ;)

Gee Larry, when you put it that way . . .

Well, I'm sure I wouldn't need it at first, but gradually I'd want an iPad window to the banal trivial life back home, just so's I'd still feel happy being in Arcadia, which of course you know also has evil and dark spirits abroad.
