Location Canada
Introduction My ancestors are from the lands in and around what is now Norway, Poland, Germany and Greece. They lived above the Arctic Circle, they spoke Yiddish, they were Romaniote Greek, they were English settlers during the revolutionary war of America, and from Germany pioneered at the turn of the century in Alberta, Canada where they also took Blackfoot names, they were buried in religious fame; and so I also go by Menachem ben Asser.
Interests Firstly and most importantly, I write to be part of local and greater writing communities and creative movements. I am inspired by a reason for being through writing; an urge which humbles one and makes one human and in so doing connects one within to their indwelling humanity while giving ground for shared expression and the conveyance of human feeling through the vehicle of the word, which is also sound. As we continue to experiment and create off the backs of our nature a prehistoric striving; to create language and take part in this prehistoric human experiment of many millennia in living continuity, we are relating to all through an infinite strain of ancestry to the strangeness of our own spontaneous expression in the moment.
