an autobiographical journey
through the wacky world
social engineering and the unexplained...
My search for sanity
in an insane world! ...slowly syncing

This is an off-the cuff post... I am sickened by the news of the Boston
bombings, sick to my stomach. Whatever political agenda anyone has, or any
problem, or any beef with another country, the targeting of the general public,
teenagers and small kids, who did nothing but stand at the side of a road to
watch a fun run, is depraved, obscene.
Why do these ‘people’, because ultimately this act was carried out by human
beings making conscious decisions, why do they not target the high ranking
politicians, the high ranking officials, and military leaders?
I know this sounds atrocious, but there are hundreds of murdering high
ranking politicians, high ranking officials, and military leaders, walking
around out there with all their limbs intact…with their lives intact….Why don’t
they ever get ‘blown up’?
Peace and best wishes to all those in Boston tonight.
I have written for the culture, entertainment, and travel sectors, both on-line and in the local press.
For over twenty years my day-job consisted of slugging away, making other people rich, in the world's most ruthless, yet strangely boring and inept corporate finance environments. That includes international banking, new-IT, and advertising.
As freelance writer, and critic, in my spare time, I help run a workshop for local writers. I am still writing the on-line movie review blog ‘Celluloid Seduction’, hanging around a lot of the entertainment sites in the process.
After the devastating and unsolved death of my younger brother on 09/09/1994, I now attempt to exorcise feelings of powerlessness, and loss, that plague my psyche, by creating modern literal performance poetry, using traditional rhythmic forms, following in the footsteps of my late grandfather, the Cypriot 'Red Village' poet 'Vasilis'.
I have many interests including the cinema, music, writing of all kinds, political and religious debate, new and weird science and the occult, plus a lot of other things that just don't fit in this box.
This blog is full of memories and opinion and observations. Feel free to quote me, but please respect me enough to credit 'Marie from Cyprus' on anything you repeat.
Thanks for dropping by!

Don't try to sue me, I have no money or assets, the international corp. bankers I use to work for made sure of that!
