In Dharmasala by Adam Jeffries Schwartz
In Dharmasala I met a Polish Princess/Filmmaker who didn't own a camera.
"Darling," she said, " it's all in the head."
Who can argue with a thing like that?
After a few drinks I asked Princess, "How can you be a Princess in a country with no royalty?"
She blew out smoke and said, "It's not like there's a warranty. You wait for the next revolution. Until then you take long baths. You read."
