Baba Yaga’s Journal

If you don’t know the story of Baba Yaga, you should. Here are a couple very nice blog entries about it:

Fairy Tale Architecture: The House on Chicken Feet by Andrew Bernheimer.

Baba Yaga is magic, but she’s not always good.  She’ll eat children, but it’s really out of grief.   If she blesses you, you are doubly blessed.  If she shuns you, be glad. If she curses you, your life will not be happy.


I like to blog under pseudonyms, and Baba Yaga suits me well right now.  For about four years, I blogged under the name Makropoulos, after the woman who is fated to never age, or never die, in Karel Čapek’s play and Leoš Janáček’s opera. The name’s currency ran out for me – I now am certain I won’t escape death.  And there were some folks who were really named Makropoulos who took issue with my blogging.

My blogging consists of random thoughts, poetry, social commentary, and something that can only be called “channeling.”   The Makropoulos blog has some interesting examples of this.  It can be found here:

Makropoulos: Arias and Essays on Art, Life and the End of Time by a 431 Year Old Diva.

I would suggest any entries under the keyword “The Grid” or “Love” to get a sense of theories I was developing in the past.  They’re pretty obscure.
