About Me

My photo

Armchair theorist, poet, and occasional IT manager, Sascha B. is equipped with a Master's Degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Texas, and is not afraid to use it. His work has been published by the University Press of America, Edwin Mellen Press, University of Texas Press, and a variety of small journals nationwide. He is also the proprietor and baker for 3141 Pie, of which you should eat many.

The Deal

I stopped blogging in 2013, when life overtook me. My father became ill and died shortly thereafter, and my mother was left with increasing dementia. I became the primary caregiver, and now orchestrate my mother's care and our family estate.

Now, I am coming up for air again.

Looking for the next book to read. All suggestions welcome.

My reading list is over here.

You may have been wondering where I went. I'm still here; I just find that in terms of the news and currect events, I feel as though we've turned that corner, from Tragedy Lane, to Farce Alley. I can't bear to write about the state of things. It's too depressing, too aggravating, too absurd. But I'm still here. If you want to see what I am thinking in the meantime, check out Things I Smelled Today.
