Chicago: the Onion Connection

Photo: Victor Donkov (Chicago, US, 2009)

A friend – Victor Donkov (on this photo) just came from a trip to Chicago, US. His brilliant story starts as a personal experience with a lively sense of humour, turns into a tourist information guide and ends before it gets worse and the onion rots 🙂

Here is his full story with more photos (in pdf).

Narcissus and Goldmund

November 18, 2009

One of my favourite Hermann Hesse’s books is ‘Narcissus and Goldmund‘ – the thinker versus the artist. Friends whose paths part … but years later circumstances bring together again. Both the artist and the thinker in search of themselves in different ways. A writing that relates to me in some profound way – the misleading names of the protagonists, the dualism all throughout the book… the search.
