Story
Introduction
HERE FOR:
Moments of absurdity and the sublime, the fresh perspective, the novel, the spark

MANIFESTO:
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight… =^_^=

DILEMNA: 
Adorno wrote - “To write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric.”

I guess I’m looking for ways to maintain optimism in the face of the increasingly decentralized world we live in, both on a personal level and in terms of the current national politics.

SOLUTION:

CAVEAT:

No good deed goes unpunished.

INTERESTS:
The “sublime;”  the search forauthenticity; the built environment &sustainability; drawing, painting, sculpture; DARPA Grand Challenge, robotics and military technology; public radio; design that stops you in your tracks; fontography; This American Life; classical civilizations; peace studies; public affairs and social justice; crossword puzzles; catching up on sleep; visiting more places in the world; meeting unique people with a story; becoming a better writer and visual artist.
