I guess the point of this blog is to give me a chance to practice scholarship in a freestyle way. In producing my little pieces here, I’m trying to sharpen us both up, and maybe, if I’m lucky, show both of us something useful we hadn’t seen before.

If you wonder why I might be or might not be worth paying attention to, here’s a piece discussing that.

I tend to read a lot of Philosophy, Psychology, Cognitive Science, Religious Studies, Mythology, Classic Lit, etc. So I’ll end up working all that into my essays. I also tend to write a bit of fiction and some poetry.

I even have a novella in existence, I just don’t know what to do with it yet.

Also dancing. I quite like dancing.

Where to Start.

I think that some pieces exemplify what I’m about more than others. Here are a few of them.

Essays and Dialogues:

  1. The World is a Dream, and All of it Comes for Free.
  2. A Dialogue on Personhood and Suffering.
  3. Your Soul and How to Swing It: The Moral Distinction Between Kinds of Knowing.
  4. The Lord Giveth and The Lord Taketh Away: Why a Life Without Limits Probably Isn’t Alive.


  1. Theory of Cherries.
  2. lost-moon-poem.
  3. the singular axis.
  4. ode to autumn boys.
  5. Overalls.
  6. Collisions.

Because hey, maybe you like poems too!
