Moral Letters Vol II by Seneca


My first full length audio narration, narrated for Librivox.

Listen for free: on Librivox

This is the second volume of the Letters, Epistles LXVI-XCII. Among the personalities of the early Roman Empire there are few who offer to the readers of to-day such dramatic interest as does Lucius Annaeus Seneca, the author of the Epistles. These letters, written by Seneca towards the end of his life, are all addressed to his friend Lucilius, who, at the time when these letters were written, was a procurator in Sicily. The form of thiswork, as Bacon says, is a collection of essays rather than of letters.

Shadows and Reflections


We walk through the world, our world, day and night, looking at it, being in it. But seldom do we realize that there is an another world hidden in plain sight. A world of beauty and darkness, almost monochrome, almost surreal - the world of shadows and reflections - in our streets, our parks, our houses and our gardens, anywhere, only if we bother to look at.

This book is an attempt at looking at this beautiful, ethereal, transient world of shadows and reflections.
