My Mask   My mask is invisible. I wear it almost every day, usually without thinking of it. It is: English.   I started to learn English in school, in the fifth grade, as most German pupils do.

  I love Masks, and mostly African Masks.   I became fascinated with African art and culture in college when my chorale did a piece called O Sifuni Mungu and I fell in love with the sounds of African music.   While living in New Orleans I fell in love with the art I found in the open market stalls … Read More

“Be Mysterious: Writers In Masks” Features Kaolin Fire

Kaolin Fire wears many masks, day in, day out. Few of them are physical, but many are real–and some that aren’t particularly tangible are far the more powerful for that. Hopefully this mask is one of the further-removed from reality, but it’s one of his favorites. He finds it’s very imposing in-person.
