For another take on who I am and why I live as I have while blogging here see this post:
or this one:
Here is a document that may offer some insight. In an even slightly ideal world this text would be much better. BUT I have had untold difficulties so far with this document as my infrastructure is often in more decay than stasis or progress. One could also copy and drag it from here.
Sorry we were cut off for a while due to my change of e mail address. I hope all is well. Mail me and I will send you some photos of my recent adventure in Torres de Paeno Natonal Park in Southern Patagonia. It is one of the most unique places in the world. I was reminded of the Yeats poem while climbing up to the Cuernos amid the exotic flora and fauna and the icy blue lakes which felt more like a trip to a planet on the other side of the galaxy. Here is the refrain of the poem which was in mind:
Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim gray sands with light,
Far off by furthest Rosses
We foot it all the night,
Weaving olden dances
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight;
To and fro we leap
And chase the frothy bubbles,
While the world is full of troubles
And anxious in its sleep.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
It is all well and good to start off with an apology. But see things my way Philippe, if I allowed comments form everyone who was among my first paying students, an old friend from home and my parents’ godson just because they sent me a Yeats poem from Patagonia where would I be? Well welcome back in touch anyway…
