When I was a child, my teachers often berated me for having “too many interests.” I wonder: Can one be too curious about the world and its delights, absurdities, tragedies and comedies?

After much thought, I decided to launch this site with the invitation to drop by occasionally, enjoy the latest harvest of gems or full-fledged stories, drop me a line, keep the conversation going. Check out the following categories…

Reflections: politics, ideas, human affairs
Wayside tales: stories from the past, present and elsewhere
Parva Helvetica: Switzerland and Geneva
Watch worlds: About watches and watchmakers
Tips and tricks: Fixes and other spontaneous things

I became a journalist, editor, photographer, teacher, announcer, translator. What better way to ask the world to “tell me more!” My name is Marton Radkai, you can find out more about me here.
