I have uploaded two essays (of sorts) to the Writings section of this site. “American Surreal” was inspired by Veryl Goodnight’s monument to the fall of the Berlin Wall at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the Texas A & M University campus in College Station, Texas. “Games of the Doll” is an outtake from Prague, Capital of the Twentieth Century. It tries to wrestle with the disconcerting gaze of the German surrealist Hans Bellmer’s notorious adolescent doll. I have also added a photo of our poodle Luci to the “About” section. She will shortly be taking driving lessons.
