I previously blogged for a number of years as niddrie_edge. A time and place long gone so here is:

Robinsonner - ob­scure French verb (seem­ingly to day­dream or per­haps even travel ment­ally, from Rim­baud’s poem ‘Roman’)

Arthur Rimbaud

life is elsewhere...

As Mustapha Khayati put it so well back in 1966, since the anarchists will tolerate each other, they will tolerate anything.
