I can't be expected to produce deathless prose in an atmosphere of gloom and eucalyptus. - Larry Durrell

“Like most of the others, I was a seeker, a mover, a malcontent, and at times a stupid hell-raiser. I was never idle long enough to do much thinking, but I felt somehow that my instincts were right. I shared a vagrant optimism that some of us were making real progress, that we had taken an honest road, and that the best of us would inevitably make it over the top. At the same time, I shared a dark suspicion that the life we were leading was a lost cause, that we were all actors, kidding ourselves along on a senseless odyssey. It was the tension between these two poles - a restless idealism on one hand and a sense of impending doom on the other - that kept me going.” -Hunter S. Thompson

Hail and well-met! Why don't you step in and tell me a bit about yourself? For my part I thrive on art, indecent books, delicious food, things Classics-related, and going forward. My resume ought to read: have previous experience with creating Roman feasts, authentic catapult construction and campaigning against Cicero for Emperor. Next on my bucket list is recreating a costumed Napoleonic-era battle between French and Russian zombie hordes. Interested in the endeavor? Contact me and we shall strategize over a proper afternoon tea.
