I'm personally fascinated with politics as a composite view of the nations of the world, their people, their cultures, their economic and religious views. But how does such fascination affect one such as me, who is involved in one or more aspects of the arts? Or more succinctly, how does art...

I first got wind of it in Linda Essig’s post on Facebook (Linda, who writes the blog “Creative Infrastructure,” was also kind enough to post a “love letter” to The Culture of Possibility last week). Then I got a note from my friend David Francis in Edinburgh, a wonderful...

The Mind of the South, by W.J. Cash   This book was written some 75 years ago, and it’s amazing to me how closely Southern attitudes, the South's social structure, the personals and political cants of that time parallel those of the South today. It’s tempting to make an essay of this review...

   The statue was magical.  Staring at it, I forgot how ancient it was – it transcended time, it was a spirit, an elf, a monster.     This striking ancient sculpture was just about the only memorable thing in what was supposed to be one of the greatest museums in the world...

Dear Readers: I’d love to see you at my upcoming book launches in New York at 6 pm on Thursday, 23 May and Berkeley at 2 pm on Sunday, 2 June.     What comes to mind when I write that someone has used words as blunt instruments? Insults or arguments maybe, the kind of...
