A Glass of Plutonic Champagne

Quote of the Week:

Cees Nooteboom (1933-)

Oh to see the Earth just once as a full moon, from a pavement café on the empty shores of the Sea of Tranquillity, a glass of plutonic champagne in front of me on my platinum table, dreaming of an impossible trip to Spain!

(Cees Nooteboom: Roads to Santiago)

  1. How wonderful and perfect for New Year’s Day. Happy New Year! I really need to read some Cees Nooteboom if it’s all this good. Mind you, I have no idea what he means with ‘plutonic champagne’. Would it be better than earthly champagne?

    1. I have no idea but it sounds splendidly futuristic! 🙂 I think it would be some unearthly colour for sure, and one would hope the taste would be suitably memorable too…

      Happy New Year!
