The little sailor. This could be titled "The fantastic comic opera of Sinbad The Sailor", but that's been done, by Paul Klee, for one of his amazing paintings, a picture I saw and loved as a child. I remark upon the small similarity, unintentional I must add. What goes in, usually comes out, so they say. We are vacuum cleaners, we take it all in, forget a great deal of it, retain some portions, regurgitate other bits, sometimes in a wholly new way.
