About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Reblogged this on necltr and commented:
    Artistically/photographically, I like this very much, clear, direct black and white portraiture on the order of Richard Avedon. Politically, socially, as another human being, my feelings are greater. The Kurds are good, hard-working people with a spirit of independence and acceptance of Americans, including Christians. To have read of Kissinger’s promises to them when their alliance with us was useful and then read of his breaking those promises and holding them in contempt, mocking them in their deaths through betrayal, was intolerable.
