Interview by Violeta Petkova with Allexandre Ferreira Allexandre Ferreira:”Beauty I believe isn’t in the eyes of the beholder; it’s in your mind.” What does it mean to be a citizen of the world, as you say?

Roger Conner Jr Leaving Frankfort I drove to Lexington, and after an overnight stay in a hotel went to the University of Kentucky art museum, where an excellent exhibition of Ancient Egyptian artifacts called “Excavating Egypt”is on display.

Roger Conner Jr Sequel I was on my way to the old capital building in Frankfort. Kentucky was originally intended to be called Transylvania by the man who sponsored Danial Boone’s first attempt to settle the area, not because it is known for vampires, but because Transylvania is Latin for “across the woods”. Lexington is […]

Small Journeys: Reflections while traveling in central Kentucky – Part 1 out of 5

21 July, 2009 от · 3 comments

Roger Conner Jr Ostensibly the trip should have been a rather mundane one, even boring; a drive to Richmond and Lexington, Kentucky to attend the twin college commencement ceremonies of two dear friends, but for me it was much more than that. I had made part of the trip before and would be familiar with […]

The Six-Second Rule

Jerry Ratch Photo: evoo73 They come to the new world, but bring the old world with them. The six-second rule. When their bagel drops face down on the café floor, apparently it’s the old world six-second rule that applies, instead of our own more modern three-second rule.

The Jamaican Wanna-Be’s

28 November, 2008 от · 2 comments

Joan Gumbs Photo: laurenmanning I see them everyday – the Jamaican wanna-be’s. They walk around dressed in dreads, they smoke ganja (calling it marijuana), they play dancehall music (at ear-bursting decibels), and they’re “close friends” with Bob Marley. A few months ago I was walking in Manhattan when I was approached by one of these […]
