I have two loves in life: coffee and music. At the moment, I am also having an affair with writing and visual art. I am a composer, and an organist; I am taking a break from music school at the moment, but I still love to perform and write. I write music, and I write prose and poetry. I occasionally write fiction. I love to write essays. I am working on an opera libretto at the moment. The opera is mostly about hell.
I love leather boots. I drink my coffee black. I sleep a little, work a lot. I generally write for more hours than I sleep. I pick up pennies when I see them on the sidewalk, because “do unto others,” and I would not very much like to have my face stepped on, thank you. (Things that go around, come around… The world is just like a merry-go-round, except nightmarish in that everyone’s a tourist.) I like to sit in loud places and study. I am never bored; I love to daydream for hours on long bus or car rides. I argue with books; in my books on philosophy in particular, my notes and arguments fill the pages’ margins.
In the following blog, I will write about a number of topics which interest me. I believe firmly that, as G. K. Chesterton said,
“There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person."
So this blog will encompass just about everything that I think about. I read a lot, and I think a lot. I love libraries, and I will read just about anything once. I make a point of not being an uninterested person. I have found that uninterested people are generally the ones who are also uninteresting, so I take curiosity very seriously.
