Just to be clear to new or casual readers:
The icon is not the person who creates this blog. That’s Mascha Kaleko, a German poet of the last century. The person responsible for most of the content is a middle-aged Englishman. The blog is driven by its doubts about masculine culture and a general artiness. Though the Englishman is single, he is not here to chat anyone up or whatever. He is always happy to talk about literature,music, art, queer stuff (he’s mildly confused and open-minded in general). Nothing here is especially nsfw. If you’re under 25, you’re very welcome to read and enjoy my posts, but you are not at all likely to find the rather dull real person who wrote them very interesting, so please don’t mistake my lonely blurtings as an inappropriate invitation to intimacy. None of the rather soppy love poems are aimed at anyone in particular: they’re just attempts to bleat out emotion into words. This blog stands for loving concern and compassion and companionship between equal people, where mutual respect is the norm. Also tea and vinyl LPs. More power to love.
