(For non -post-Soviet people out there, the title for this post is a paraphrase of a famous quote from Vladimir Mayakovsky, which became one of the slogans of the Soviet regime:”Lenin lives… and so forth)
Today I am grateful to Karen Tate, whose book “Sacred places of Goddess” I purchased as a pdf file, simultaneously grabbing some free downloads off the book shop website, among which was The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I dived with delight into my childhood joy. And, I mean, how accurate is the current Sherlock (by Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis)! And how cool are the original stories!
“I rose to go, but Holmes caught me by the wrist and pushed me back into my chair. “It is both, or none,” said he. “You may say before this gentleman anything which you may say to me.””
How sexy, powerful and full of character is that? 🙂
