Unfortunately, Walter would not find any respite here on the steppes
of Kazakhstan. For long periods of time, the temperature hovers in the
low 30's, with a plus or minus added for the appropriate season. But
it is a dry 30's.

However, in a week I will be enjoying the delights, and pleasant
weather, of Paris. I would be happy to share a bottle of Glen's liver
in a cafe along the Seine, should Walter be vorhandensein.


"In thatness & whatness and substantialist metaphysics of simple
presence (Isn't there a song like that?)"

Surely Walter is thinking of that classic song which combines
'thatness', with the declaration, "Here I am", and 'whatness', with
the assertion, "rock you like a hurricane". Or is it the other way
around? Either way, you've got lots of presence going on.
