A place to house artwork, links and music I enjoy. There is an 'About' page which talks a little more about who I am and what I do, but to give a brief note, I'm Eastern Orthodox by confession, into jazz, progressive and avant-garde music as well as post-punk and psychedelic, love art, pretty women and Jorge Luis Borges, Ezra Pound and P'u Song-Ling. Feel free to contact me to your heart's content, as I love shooting the breeze with people.

    Julius Von Klever (1850-1924)
    Erlkönig, c. 1887 
    *From a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe depicting the death of a child assailed by a supernatural being, the Erlkönig.

    Wer reitet so spät durch Nacht und Wind?
    Es ist der Vater mit seinem Kind;

    Er faßt ihn sicher, er hält ihn warm.

    Классический русский перевод Жуковского:

    Кто скачет, кто мчится под хладною мглой?

    Обняв, его держит и греет старик.
