William in Hawaii

I'm proud of my brother, violinist and cultural diplomat William Harvey, for this eloquent reflection on his visit to the once and future Kingdom of Hawaii.

Queen Liliuokalani (1838-1917)

As my website approaches its 16th birthday tomorrow, I was thinking a bit mournfully about a formerly monarchist online acquaintance I'm not in touch with anymore, and it occurred to me, I'm still dreaming of a Wittelsbach restoration in Bavaria, while not only X. but also the actual Wittelsbachs have moved on. If that means I'm politically irrelevant, I guess I'm politically irrelevant. Oh well. I know I'm right, even if the whole world disagrees, and it's not quite the whole world. If you're one of the not-so-happy few (and if you're reading this blog you probably are), thank you, and let's never give up.
