“I still think there must be an Esmeralda out there with my name on her but I may never find her” I wrote in 2010 after my one night Vienna visit, where I discovered Pour Platin shut down. Well, yes I have found her haven’t I—FROM Twelfth Night 2014 trip to Vienna under Wagnerian skies and Fortuna Blonde, Amanda WSK, Andrea, Julia and Lucy in 5th Avenue, Adelina in Manhattan, not to mention the great times I had in Soho with Zara, Maria, Lavinia, Marianna, etc. Loyalty and fidelity weighed me down, and then for most of the past 12 months the pox weighed me down.
Yes Vienna was depressing but wasn’t that partly because I was still psychologically burdened by the pox, still putting toothpaste and talcum powder on it every day in desperate attempt to cover it. How that weighed me down. Might have done something in Tete a Tete or Manhttan if not for that. And maybe Adelina will be back in October.
