Gabriel Garcia Marquez, farewell

Today’s NYT has a slideshow on the magical realist writer, including a nice desk shot where he is using an unknown (to me, that is) typewriter.

Keep A Sharp Lookout

Can’t wait to try Mr. J’s Words in Flight method of airmail. BUT for the nonce, will stick with another medium of transport–the river near my home.
Tossing in the missive here–yes, it’s not completed yet-figure that if Typosphereans could read the whole thing online, they might not bother reaching out to grab this half-sized bottle–still containing a few drops of good Ouzo! (from Plomari ) And– ha-on the company’s website–their contact page shows paper rolled up in a bottle–bit of authorization for this move.
Cheers,
