Natasha - My Vodka Virgin
I dreamt a visa dream last night, and vodka-driven, sent the cheque; within a week I checked her out: Natasha, my Vodka Virgin. Her face could launch a herd of yaks her bust could bust my spine in two I'm relieved to still be calling her Natasha 'my vodka virgin'. My visa card was sorrowful, my vodka bottles fully drained, the pantry filled with eels bought by Natasha, my vodka virgin. It's eels for brekky, eels for tea Eels served at half past three. Fucking eels like sushi by Natasha, my vodka virgin. Her cooking's driven me to drink and drain the local liquor store - I'll always hit the floor before Natasha, my vodka vir

Well Acquainted
We shared a cup of tea, she and I. No milk, no sugar, no honeycoated words to weaken the taste of departure. We were connoisseurs, and well acquainted with the many blends of coming change. Understanding kept us mute, our ceremony quiet as we stirred the aging, aromatic leaves. +++ We drank darjeeling once, when the grass was frost-glamourous and our eyes danced a dawn tango. She wore red; I read her Blake's secret; and we smiled over brimming cups. 'Your eyes are earl grey' I whispered, when a mountain's shadow embraced us and day turned into dusk into her eyes as rain waltzed all around, enchanting, to the scattered orchest

Away Message
I just realized there are still some people around who I actually miss. People I spent a lot of time discussing literature and life with, especially in the years from 2003-2006 when I was still working nightshift in a hotel and deviantArt, as unlikely as it might seem, was one of the few good things in my life. Well, things have changed. My life got better. The internet got worse. Long story short, I'm not here anymore. But I don't want to delete my stuff, and I think it's important people can still reach me. Because sometimes I miss them. So: The old links below are still legit, although I don't update my vita here anymore. My life takes p

That Time of the Year
Yes, it's that time of the year again: letting you know I'm still alive ;) It's strange how you stick to certain places, even on the internet. I had no problems letting Myspace die. I just deleted my G+ account again, after only some weeks. But I keep going back here. Maybe I spent just too much time here many years ago to leave for good. 2011 has been mostly a good, but sometimes difficult year so far. I'm still writing, and I'm still working as a translator. The novel I'm currently working on is, forgive me, a bitch, but the current novel is always a bitch. We got ourselves a cat this spring, but the cat died only two months later. We've

Greeting and very belated salutations, my friend. I have not been around these parts lately. Hope things are still doing great with you. I wonder if you have hooked into any *new* sci-fi/fantasy T.V. shows of late;-) I see that you are venturing into photography - will comment later. Anyway, wanted to stop and say a quick hello.
