YetToBeBuilt1

A travelogue to places which defy the surface of the world. In order of appearance: an ideal palace built by a postman after each of his daily rounds; a red house designed by a socialist agitator; a pacifist tower erected against the movements of History; an exuberant garden engendered in the feminine; and a merry cemetery, which conjures a community of equals in the outskirts of Europe. To ensure we risk our joy for those who act in their own time.

HerHandsHisShapeIncantations1

It is a project of re-enchantment: Seeing things, hearing things, possibly crossing worlds.
