About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

Carnuntum

.


Recently re-watched the Outer Limits episode Demon with a Glass Hand -- perhaps the best Harlan Ellison-written, Robert Culp with a speaking, robotic, finger -seeking, ultimately omniscient, Gilgamesh-inspired, Arlene Martel -featuring, eschatological, noir science fiction show of its type. The Demon really has an accurately oneiric feel, camera angles reeling up stairways, shadowy characters on catwalks.


Started to re-read Winter Brothers by Ivan Doig -- a tremendous effort. I like among other things the way in which he evokes the physicality of the diaries left by 19th c. man James G. Swan.
