Began writing what I thought was a fairly simple observation about Polish poet Czeslaw Milosz and the recent terrorist attack in Russia, took a detour into Swedenborg and Oscar V. de L. Milsoz, Romanticism and the tripartite kingdom of the glorious past, the evil here and now, and the utopia to come, then detoured over to some World War II reflections, and ended up with a mess. Which I still may post tomorrow, but may just say the hell with it all -- depends largely on how much I can cut and still feel like I have a point..

In the meantime, I've added a useful link to, which tracks Central and Eastern Slavic Literature in Translation, in the favorites list. It's a fun site worth reading.
