Former locations

The Media Development Group
This, the location of my first web publishing ventures was one of the earliest multimedia efforts in our community in 1996 and we were all very excited about the new opportunity to publish for ourselves!

Some of the old restraints were still in place, such as the need for a license to publish, which I dutifully paid for despite the fact that I couldn't really afford the rent.
The Medical Sector IT Project
During the winter of 2007-2008 I had an opportunity to work with a Governess afflicted by rivalry but very good to her people.

She's an honorable woman of great strength, spirit and compassion who helped me to connect to people from the same industry as my father in other parts of the world, including Russia, but we were lucky to be in England where the Internet began in earnest.

Childhood home
Dinky-town, where we went to school - and the greater metropolitan area where we live is compromised by a rare adaptation few are capable of discussing, or disseminating without encountering Constitutional Limitations.

(Discussion of problems like pollution and various forms of infestation such as rats and parasites is considered to be rude by many, so my camera and microscope were stolen when I started publishing on these subjects).

Heinrich von Kleist's The Broken Jug

"This drawing is a preparatory study for one of Menzel's illustrations of Heinrich von Kleist's play, The Broken Jug, a comedy about love and corruption. The plot revolves around a trial in a village courtroom, where a young man named Ruprecht is accused of breaking a pitcher.

Actually it is the judge himself, Adam, who broke the jug while pursuing a romance with Ruprecht's fiancée, Eve. The print for which this drawing is preparatory depicts the moment when it is revealed that the judge, Adam, deceived Eve by making her believe that her boyfriend was to be drafted to fight in the East Indies.

The night the pitcher was broken, Adam was at Eve's home trying to convince her that in exchange for sexual favors he could arrange from Ruprecht to avoid conscription. The play's title, The Broken Jug, is an analogy to Eve's potential loss of chastity. The highly symbolic names, Adam and Eve, make reference to temptation and the fall of humankind. The sheet demonstrates Menzel's ideas for the composition unfolding across the page.

At left, he explored how Eve is comforted with either a caress of her shoulder or her cheek. At the upper right, Menzel focused his attention on different ways of grasping the false enlistment letter, the evidence of the corruption in the story. At bottom right, he considered how to convey the astonished reaction to the judge's corruption with wide eyes and mouth agape.

All these expressions are portrayed with a penetrating realism that brings the characters to life." From the J. Paul Getty Museum
