James Ensor in Paris

Today I got engaged in a discussion with Arnon Grunberg on whether or not sex is revealing. It’s funny we had a discussion as I have agreed with him to start with. Anyway, I believe sex is revealing if you chose it to be revealing. It has to do with trust and sometimes courage. You don’t need sex to be open to someone and very often we chose not to reveal ourselves when we are having sex. Just think of it: how many times have you lied in bed? I don’t mean lying about the size and that kind of stuff. I mean lying about yourself and your feelings towards your partner? And how many times you have chosen not to tell or show something about yourself?

In October 2009 – February 2010 there will be an exhibition of James Ensor in Musée d'Orsay. It would be very nice to go there. I don’t feel like going alone, does anyone want to join? I am sure Paris has much more to offer around that time, so we could combine some exhibitions, festivals, a theatre play perhaps? Let me know.

Timeline: 1990 - we get to see MTV top 20 every week on TV. Top 20 (sponsored by Brown) came very late in the evening, my parents were sleeping, but I watched every week. We didn’t have our own ‘tops’ so the concept seemed very fresh and somewhat strange. I liked the music.
