Hi, I'm Andy Engelson, a writer and editor who lived in Hanoi for five years and now lives in Geneva Switzerland. This blog is no longer active, but you can find more of my writing at The Lost Salt Atlas
. I'm currently working on a historical novel set in the Northwest United States during World War II. In a former life, I edited Washington Trails magazine. I like to hike, travel, and play with my family.
And tell me why — The Odyssey,
you weep and why you moan within your heart
when you hear of the doom if Ilion
and of the Greeks. The gods brought this about:
for men they wove the web of suffering,
that men to come might have a theme to sing.
