Thanks, Russ.

It's actually a 'gal' sitting there - one of the many widows living on the streets of Varanasi - and was never intended to be anything other.

Poor woman, what a destiny! With all those fortune tellers around, you'd think she'd have migrated before her parents flogged her off the books! Shows you, though, can't escape destiny. As I, too, discovered, what's for you won't go around you, and what's not you might as well forget. Trouble is, how do we know which is which, or is it as Saul Leiter said: nobody knows what's what, and when they do, it's too late?

Indeed, Matt.

We were often humbled by the stoicism shown in the face of adversity.

How can we know it is a Ďgalí, Keith? You obviously didnít spent enough time with woman to know they can be very illogical in how they dress, A headscarf certainly is not a proof of feminine.
I suggest you study the masters of feminism before you portray such a difficult genre.

 ;) ;) ;) :)


But, personally, I like this portrait of that guy.  ;D

The image obviously passes the ambiguity test if Russ doesnít know if it is a guy or a gal. Itís getting closer to street I think. Real street or actual street or proper street or Magnum street.

If ambiguity is the parameter, we Ďat Lulaí are all a bit street. Arenít we?

Vuistregel:
"om" met 1 o, betekent "to" met 1 o.
"ook" met 2 oo's, betekent "too" met 2 oo's.

en "te veel o's" schrijf je ook met twee oo's: and "too many o's" too is written with two oo's.

En wees gerust, nee, ik ben geen taalpurist, maar dit verschil is soms moeilijk uit een zin te destilleren.

Yeah, I think we probably are. Remove that, and there'd be not a lot to say.

I used to think that the law was straightforward and clear-cut: follow what it says and you'll be okay. Then it struck me: were that the case, we would only need one lawyer on each dispute. He'd explain the law and that would be that. Now we know that things don't work like that at all, and that even the law is a puddle of alternative ideas and opinions, and the more you pay the more likely the thing will turn out to agree with your opinion too.
