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.

Stamps of Bartók, Beethoven, Dickens, Jeffers, Mongolia

I rather think a demonstration in Havana in recent times might lack an American flag.
