That’s Prince Charles, three years younger than me. But he looks nearly old enough to be my father. Just look at my photo below with my wife’s cousin Ceyda’s dog Daisy in Izmir. Prince Charles has spent a lifetime on the decks of yachts, skiing in the Alps, playing polo, etc. By contrast, I have spent my time indoors pouring over the Grundrisse, etc.



  1. Hello, thanks for the insight and alternate views you are providing us with. But I couldn’t figure out what you referred to as “Grundrisse”?!? Did you mean floor plans or was that a free interpretion of the actual German word which could translate to “basic tears / cracks”?

    Sincerely, Frank

  2. Karl Marx wrote Grundrisse. It was basically a notebook he kept to help him write Capital.

  5. After pourng a while over the Grundrisse it is always good to take a walk and get some fresh air.

  7. All that time outdoors has weathered his skin. But he looks better (i.e., far less gawky) now than he did thirty-some years ago.
