In part 1 of this series on colors we will start with all things colored black. We will begin with a story, then go on.
Once upon a time in the land of make believe there was a castle. It was called Black Rock castle. It’s name was decided by the family of Schwartz- Black-Mela due to the large, onyx colored boulders in the area. It was a rich but dreary place complete with beautiful decor and gardens but a lot of very bored royals lived inside. Who were they ? I am not sure, but we can look around for possibilities….
Schwartz is German for BLACK. Petra or Peter means stone, or rock. Black is also spelled BLAKE as well.
Petra ? Like Petraeus ?
Soros fought in World War I and spent years in a prison camp in Siberia before escaping. He founded the Esperanto literary magazine Literatura Mondo (Literary World) in 1922 and edited it until 1924. He wrote the short novel Modernaj Robinzonoj (Modern Robinsons) (1923), and Maskerado ĉirkaŭ la morto (Masquerade (dance) around death), published 1965, an autobiographical novel about his experience during the Nazi occupation of Budapest, Hungary. Maskerado has been translated into English, Russian, German, Turkish, and Hungarian. He also wrote under the name Teo Melas (“Melas” is Greek for “black”, just as “schwarz” is in German). During the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, he and his wife escaped to the United States, where he lived in New York until his death in 1968.
We will look more now in comments.
