Autumnal Agape

Posted on October 29, 2009 at 1:59pm 0 Comments

In life we are very rarely offered an opportunity to do things over. A second chance as it were. This summer I was given such an opportunity. No longer proffesionally occupied, and consumed once again by the fires of passion, I set out to find and make mine the woman who had once, many years ago, in a casino in the south of Spain, ignited my heart like a match to an effigy of Guy Fawkes. The woman was the Grey Fox, Her Majesty, the Contessa Elise St. Germiane. And success or failure, I would… Continue

The Clarity of Conscience

Posted on July 2, 2009 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Sometimes standing on a beach looking out into the ocean feels like standing on the edge of the world, as if behind is everything you know, everything that is, and in front of you is nothing. A flat plane of endings breaking against the slowly crumbling rocks and eroding sand of the real world. The bay of Bengal is especially helpful in creating this illusion in that it is especially beautiful, it is quiet, and it is not hard to find ruins along its edge. It was in the stony remains of what I… Continue

A Light Gone Out

Posted on June 29, 2009 at 2:56pm 0 Comments

When I put up the first post in this series, I hoped that more would come of all of this than has. But time, like all things made by chance, nature, and the ineffable hand of a possible creator, does not concern itself with the interests or desires of small men, and I am indeed a small man. I came here, to India, to find a man to inspire me, to find a home of courage and bravery. I have found an empty urn, a family in perpetual mourning for an irreplaceable figure, and a road that leads… Continue

The Journey Begins

Posted on June 26, 2009 at 2:48pm 2 Comments

Many years ago I spent some time in India with colleagues, in the aftermath of a particularly lucrative game in Bombay, now Mumbai. As the idle rich are wont to do, we spent our time, in what was to us a strange and foreign land, looking for "adventure" promised to all young Europeans by Bond novels, movies, and countless other tales of the mysteries of the Orient, to which India was the gateway. What we found in the Hunt was a journey into the wild that showed us the true nature of ourselves,… Continue

You bet Christatos. I'd love to have an Ayn Rand conversation. But promise to go easy on me, I'm not as well-versed in philosophical arguments as I see you are.

Mr. Aristad, I was wondering if you could message me privatly through AOM since I cannot find a link to send you a message. I have a question that I would like to ask you.

Thank you, Christatos, I would indeed like some assistance getting a mentor. Are you able to send me a message on this system? I see that some people (e.g. Brett) has a link on his page but you don't; do I?
