This is a blog about, music, literature, friends, and resistance.

 Aristotle wrote that a friend is a person’s other self (Nicomachean Ethics 1170b).

Μy other self/heteros eautos is the pianist and educator Dr. Pantelis Polychronidis.

This blog celebrates our friendship, and draws on our dialogue about the Greek ideas of pan and telos.

It was made public on December 25, 2014 to mark five years since the night he and I decided to become friends.
