The Art of Fine Thinking
Introduction
I’m a thinker, of that there is no doubt. 

I appreciate the beauty and elegance of a well-crafted argument. I’m also moved by the insight and intelligence of a well-framed work of art.

The artifacts of my thinking come in many shapes and sizes. I share the more artful, sometimes silly, and often provocative artifacts of my thinking here. 

I would love to connect with others doing the same.
