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.

  1. As they would say in Wales, that is so LUSH

      Agree.. something about this photo makes me feel it is not the 1950s thereabouts but back in Versailles…

      • I agree…I like decadence when it’s in the past..our contemporary decadence leaves me cold… a present day marie antoinette would shovelling the cake down our throats and we would just choke to death without a complaint

  2. The evocative setting makes me as the viewer, want to engage in conversation during a delightful evening.

    Thank You,
