"The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart." -- Camus, "The Myth of Sisyphus" (tr. Walter Kaufmann)
After a long hiatus, I'm finally able to devote more time to the game I've loved for as long as I can remember. I am grateful to be here.
I do my best every day to improve, as a person and as an inexpert chess-player. My struggles with chess inform me and inspire me in my struggles with life.
I especially admire Albin Planinc for his ingenuity and courage and Dr. Max Euwe for his lucidity and generosity of spirit.
I am happy to help my fellow members however I might do so; please feel free to seek my assistance. Thanks!
