A man in love with his wife. Outsider-Christian. Hermetic-Aesthete. Sentimentalist. New Englander transplanted in Oregon. Heroes: Jacob Boehme, William Blake, Novalis, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Soren Kierkegaard, C.S. Lewis, Thomas Merton and Simone Weil, to name a few. I like mysticism, magic, books, art, animals, trees, cottages, castles, coffee, wine, and the small comforts of day-to-day existence.
