Tribute To Drogo Empedocles

“I really am not qualified to speak to his architectural skills: I can, however, speak to his strength of character, his concern for the built and natural environments, and his artistic and literary capabilities. All of which are exemplary. Much ahead of the crowd, Drogo understood the fragility of the natural world, and the responsibility we all have to live with it and not on it. His endeavors with the Sustainable Cooperative for Organic Development testify to this. The group maintains a blog with individual authors pages. He writes under the name Drogo Empedocles there. Here is a link to his works: The rest of the architecture world begins to catch up with him, but he was something of a pioneer. I can’t fail to mention his enjoyment of the language. I have found it rather rare to encounter someone who enjoys both brush and pen, but Drogo certainly does. He has a love for puns, and a love for his home “shire” Harpers Ferry, WVA, which appears in some of his pieces as Harper’s Furry, and in others and others as Harpers Faerie. I am delighted that I’m going to appear in the latter, as O-Laugh the Ordinary.”
