Ok, I was wrong the other day – I mentioned something about two hands and speculated that it might have been a weird drawing by René Magritte.
I just checked – it wasn’t. This is what I was thinking of at the time – and this is by a Dutch artist called Maurits Cornelis Escher
This is something that I have always liked by Magritte (the Lovers) – a bit different, I know.
Okay, I hear you – what has all this to do with Learning Curves?
Well, … emm… ehhhh, ok, I had to go and look for these pictures somewhere and then I couldn’t just click and copy or drag them from wherever they were into my blog – I had to do other stuff first. Ok, I know, not a huge deal at all but – well, for me, I did it so there you are and … never mind.
I am Irish, currently living in West Australia. I have a degree in Old & Middle English, Lang & Lit and, despite having worked in Kuwait, Italy, Malaysia, USA, Brunei, Australia and Hong Kong over the last 40 years, I have a strong interest in Ireland’s ancient pre-history and the heroes of its Celtic past as recorded in the 12th and late 14th century collection of manuscripts, collectively known as The Ulster Cycle.
I enjoy writing historical novels, firmly grounded in a well-researched background, providing a fresh and exciting look into times long gone. I have an empathy with the historical period and I draw upon my experiences of that area and the original documents.
I hope, by providing enough historical “realia” to hook you into a hitherto unknown – or barely glimpsed - historical period.
