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.

Two Links

Offering up two insightful, if somewhat depressing, thoughts from Nicholas Carr:

Books That Are Never Done Being Written -- about the malleability of digital books and and the essential end to the era of immutable text we have lived in since Gutenberg, and a blog entry on our current inability to experience anything without sticking some digital filter between ourselves and it.

Happy MLK Jr. Day.

Remember the Dream.
