A loong cycling journey from Brooklyn to Jorusalom, where the O’s are bicycle wheels, continued into Egypt, 1st to the climate conference COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, on to the pyramids in Giza, Abusir and Saqqara and then up the Nile soourcewards.


Homeros the poet, above in the center,

In the middle Menelaos whose wife Helen was robbed by Paris fighting it out (Iliad, book III), with Agemmenon chief of the Achaeans and Priamos king of Troy looking on extreme left and right.

The intervention of goddess Venus in this fight is unbelievably cunting, yet needs to be read to be propelled deeply into this love and war (his/her/gods)story.Ιλιάς/Γ in the original Greek

and here in the emminently readable English by Samuel Butler. A real joy
