Mervyn,

It is an interesting question to ask how and in what way they have 
ontological depth. BTW have you read the recent Berger on Van Gogh's 
drawings.  He is over 70 now, Berger, and he still writes like an 
angel.  My heart hurt with envy.

Take care and BTW who is going to Denmark?  It looks like the ******* at my 
uni will be finding my trip. So will we fellow listers meet in Copenhagen?

regards

Gary
