"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings totaly obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." ~ Frank Herbert

"It is wrong to think that misfortunes come from the east or from the west; they originate within one's own mind. Therefore, it is foolish to guard against misfortunes from the external world and leave the inner mind uncontrolled." ~ Buddha

KERUKEION was born from the ashes of my old personal site, Rise from Darkness and it's supposed to be a place in which to keep my thoughts and writings neatly ordered and arranged.
"Kerukeion" is the Greek word for "caduceus", Hermes/Mercury's "wand" - two snakes, face to face, wrapped over a tree branch which in the modern versions has also got two spreaded wings on top. The caduceus, or kerukeion is sometimes considered to be the ancestor of the wand and it symbolizes duality, wisdom, peace and freedom.

I chose to name my website after this particular magical staff because it very much represents me.

Here's how a caduceus looks like.


If you are truly interested in my website, then I bid you the most sincere welcome. Still, I'd appreciate that if at a closer look you shall consider its content crazy or stupid or myself a total nutcase and so forth, you'd just leave and make no crappy comment. I'd appreciate your respect and common sense.

Now, that was enough gibberish! Thanks for coming here and hope you'll have fun browsing around!


2 October '05 Yes, new layout, even though the site's still on hiatus! Yes, I'm crazy! That's a known fact!

25 August '05 Nopes, I'm not abandoning this site. Even if I rarely update, that shouldn't be a problem, since this is not a blog, nor a graphics site. If you need to contact me, just send me an e-mail.
Right now, I'm having a layout change. Hope you enjoy the new looks!
