    Hello, Evan. An end-of-year checking-in to long neglected sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, emails, SCP, et cetera) revealed the metamodern art site, many fine verses published in the past months, and the publication of two MC verses in October: Thanks for all of this. Two fellows left kind comments. I might thank them if I can navigate my way through the technology.

    You might like to know that I, and my small team of classicists, are designing a 58 square mile city, AEGEA: See, http://www.aegealife.com/info where you will find the “AEGEA Story” video, 9:30; the “AEGEA Property Flyover” video, 3:18 (40 miles of the 58 miles); and the “AEGEA Brochure”. I mention this project as a proof that others share your purpose.

    Well done, and good luck,
