As I said on the front page, this site is dedicated to my thoughts, particularly where poetry and stories are concerned. If you’re curious, the pen name Mercurius Cursor was chosen with due diligence. I am a classicist by training, and the similarities between myself and the Mercury of myth have not been lost on myself or others. Tricks and laughter and a grasp of quick wit are, I am told, his hallmarks and mine. The epithet Cursor means “runner”, and my swiftness, of wit and foot, has long been a defining characteristic of mine.

All that said, I hope you, whoever you are, enjoy this site!
