Lake Hévíz, Hévíz, Hungary

My memory of this place never disappears, although with time, the colors fade to grey and white.

Liquid Devotion

Lake Hévíz, Hévíz, Hungary

This is my brother. He’s absorbing minerals through his skin in Hungary’s thermal Lake Hévíz.

Last year, two of my Lake Hévíz images went live in elimae — a literary journal.

This year, my videopoem inspired by the lake appeared in Referential Magazine and Moving Poems.


Lukács 4

Lukács Fürdő, Budapest, Hungary

This is a circular ‘swirling pool’. Strong jets along both sides of the pool spin bathers around and around.

Also at this spa: showers and bubble stations.

Other views of this thermal bath here and here.

Lukács 2

Lukács Fürdő, Budapest, Hungary

These underwater bubble stations are in high demand—firm jets of thermal water pulsate under the back, derrière, thighs, and calves.

The showers are popular too.
