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.

    Memories of motor vehicles of an earlier age… A new model of automobile was produced every year with the objective being the encouragement of the public wanting to be up to date with ownership of the design. However, during WW II, cars were not made for the public, we became somewhat like present day Cuba as we did not “trade in” for a while. Driving was limited anyhow, because gasoline was rationed.
    A two-piece bathing suit in 1940? I don’t recall them, maybe they were only worn in automobile trunks when in public.

    The good old days, when a trunk was a trunk because what the earliest cars used were really trunks.
