thoughts (and links) of a retired "social scientist" as he tries to make sense of the world.....
what you get here
This is not a blog which expresses instant opinions on current events. It rather uses incidents, books (old and new), links and papers as jumping-off points for some reflections about our social endeavours.
So old posts are as good as new! And lots of useful links!

Pleven Gallery at last
On Thursday, I eventually made it to the Ilyia Beshkov
Gallery in Pleven. The gallery was easily
found – in an imposing building and quiet imposing area. It was midday when I
got there – I was the only visitor and it was quite freezing! So cold that the
3 curators shut themselves in the small room and left me to my own devices for
almost an hour – with the lighting on and my able to photograph to my heart’s
content. About 50 of Beshkov’s large sketches; half a dozen large sculptures some of which were Angel Spassov but most (I now realise) were Marko Markov's!; a Mkrkchvika, Mitov, Tsonev, Boris Denev, and Stefan Ivanov
I think the seated lady is a Kiril Tsonev - unfortunately I got a bit confused in my scribbling on the catalogue - which turned out to show the work of Hristo Boyadjiev (1912-2001)
I am also confused about this one below - is it Stefan Ivanov?
