Some Poems and a Dolphin and The Dicethrower">
Nicolas George Maroudas was born in South Africa, of Greek father and Anglo-South-African mother, in 1934. He met his wife Alice, a Polish holocaust survivor, on a Chemical Engineering course at Witwaterstrand University in 1950. They settled in London, had three children, obtained PhDs and entered research careers in Cell Biology and Biomedical Engineering. He is now retired and lives in Lower Galilee, Israel. He is an agnostic who blunders around in a dazed state of wonder and gratitude at the marvelous privilege of going through a life. He has published a few scientific papers and devised an accurate hexadecimal notation for musical overtones to simplify key relationships. His hobby is coding classical music in this notation for high resolution digital replay.
