Listed below are links to weblogs that reference From the Archive: Franz Kafka, 3 July 1883- 3 June 1924:


It really took me to the ages.... wow amazing creativity

Leo is certainly the last sign you would expect to find on Kafka's ascendant, and given our current state of knowledge, I think it simply irresponsible to accept the 7am birthtime as correct:


But surely the most Cancerian thing about Kafka is the turning into a huge beetle, if one may analogize among carapaced creatures.

Thanks, Mark. You comments always hit the spot. DL

Well, I don't know about all that, but the thing that really gets me is women
ALWAYS leave the seat down after they go to the bathroom, they NEVER put it
back up, even though they might very well be sharing living space with a man,
and they KNOW he likes to play "aerial bombardment" on the cigarette butts in
the toilet. It's VERY inconsiderate.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
