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. The "xothique" portion of the web address is a nod to Clark Ashton Smith's fictional continent of Zothique.

Gregor Samsa

"But Jung sees the unconscious as being, besides this container for personal repressions, at bottom collective -- containing the products of 'innate forms and instincts' common to mankind. Where repressed contents of the personal unconscious may have been conscious at one time, the collective contents have never had any association with consciousness." from The Supernatural by Douglas Hill and Pat Williams.

Another moody, fabulous sample of Roman's illustration -- yeah, they're supposed to be side by side.

More Oddities

A couple more pages from Oddities 6.
These works are, as with anything, collaborations -- the co-author is time. By this point the contributors were from greater distances than with the earlier issues. Artists from California, Finland, England, and Oregon are represented.

new system

my posting of oddities 6 will be delayed for a while until I can get my new scanner figured out...

I watched that great show on Japanese balloon bombs again on pbs.
