When I was in my early twenties, my mother, hoping to goad me into doing some painting in her house, gave me a copy of Paint Magic by Jocast Innes. I was particularly taken by a photo of a mural of a landscape done in a stairhall in New England by one William Price, whom Innes describes as an “itinerant painter.” I feel myself to be something of an itinerant intellectual with more ambition than training, and no attachments to any institution or organization. Hopefully, like William Price, what I lack in refinement I make up for in spirit.
My two great interests are liberalism and sexuality and I use this blog to explore these subjects. I welcome contributions from other people.
