When you travel

“It is the fate of most voyagers, no sooner have they discovered what is most interesting in any locality, then they are hurried from it; but I ought, perhaps,  to be thankful that I obtained significant material to establish this most remarkable fact in the distribution of organic beings.” (The Voyage of the Beagle).

I finished reading The Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin, read some sections of the Origin of the Species and The Descent of Man  for my eCourse, The Modern and the Postmodern. I did not realize how clear and fluid Darwin’s writings. I have read and enjoyed also the works of Baudelaire, Nietzsche, and Freud for my eCourse.Image

 Now I’m on Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse, a required ( or rather optional) reading. 

For contemporary fiction I finished and enjoyed reading Alif, the Unseen, a mixture of cyberspace intrigue, glimpses of Islamic theology and mysticism and romance.
