The banner gets updated with my mood. Right now, it’s a shot of me and a few of my colleagues dancing after the rain at The Moscow News Culture Clash summer party.
I used to do a feature called “Monday Night Poetry Club” – but I ran out of steam (as opposed to running out of poetry, which would be impossible). In fact, my writing used to be more personal, but then the hit-counter started to climb (which was unexpected), and I became proportionately shy.
I went through a period of breaking up some words with parentheses. This is because of the search-terms. At the time, I was living in Dubai, and didn’t want to get blocked by their national firewall. And then I moved and said, “screw it.”
I learned British English before I learned American English. There are some words that I still spell the British way: “honour,” “colour,” “flavour,” etc. On the other hand, I write “traveler” instead of “traveller.”
