Outer Sanctum

In my private life, I read voraciously and write voluminous quantities of analysis, speculation, introspection, and lyrical prose. Although in my professional and scholarly life much of my work has focused on various forms of writing and the interpretation of texts, in my personal work I feel I have undertaken a long apprenticeship and only now am learning to truly speak.

But I have listened for a very long time.

My writing is influenced by a sense of belonging to the turning of seasons, an attunement to changes in the wind and soil. And the universe expands, and in this opening a single point of light, a glancing blow, a smear of matter, might spill itself across this glittering field.
