This page is dedicated to my novel, “RINGS of CHALK”, set in the Republic of Georgia. I had the privilege of working in the Caucasus several years after the fall of the Soviet Union during a time of chaos, war and refugees and was invited into the high mountains on the Russian border. Like most writers, interpretations of personal experiences and characters have been transposed into the writing.
The novel is in the final editing stage after a very busy year working on other projects and who knows, if I am lucky enough to find an agent, the title may change. But for the moment, it is a reference to Gurdjieff’s description of the Yezidi chalk circle superstition that he saw first-hand in the Caucasus, described in his book, “Meetings With Remarkable Men”. I’ll leave you to discover the details and meaning. For now, a brief synopsis, two excerpts and the photos of my travels in 1998 to whet your appetite:
