The best way to produce "strountes" is to keep a note book and an open mind. First thought is best thought, said Allan Ginsberg. Lichtenberg wrote in one of his waste books that all of us are capable to produce something ingenious a least once a year. But if we don't write it down these burst of geniality will vanish just the like that. Most of our thoughts are just small change, but if you put them together, rearrange, systematize them you might have a great fortune. So in order to be smart you have to be silly, have perseverance and confidence in your ability to at least once a years produce something of great value. So keep a scrap book and an open mind and you are on you way.

So here and there my linguistic gymnastics will be "på svenska" but I will do my best convert it to English. This section will grow so more pages with sense and non-sense will come about in the future.

There is this song the very intriguing title: I 've grown accustomed to her face. Was she really that ugly or? Which reminds me of a blues song called I've grown so ugly by Robert Williams:

I got up this morning
And I put on my shoes
I tied my shoes
Then I washed my face
I went to the mirror
For to comb my head
I made a move
