Vitae Summa Brevis Spem Nos Vetat Incohare Longam

 Vitae Summa Brevis Spem Nos Vetat Incohare Longam (The brief sum of life forbids us the hope of enduring long - Horace)They are not long, the weeping and the laughter, Love and desire and hate: I think they have no portion in us after We pass the gate. They are...

Reading Auden’s “The Fall of Rome”

This poem, it is said, was written when Auden was asked by his friend, Cyril Connolly, to pen a poem that would make him weep. Well, to be honest, it didn't make me weep, but it is still pretty fucking fantastic. What about you? Have a read:   The Fall...

I changed my mind about public speaking

  I used to feel like everybody and their mom wants to be public speaker, like it was this trendy self-promotion-y thing that people were doing. And because I'm a contrarian asshole with an inveterate supriority complex, I used to thumb my nose up at the...

Some impressionistic notes on the role of art

  Increasingly, I think of art as a sublimation and transmutation of everyday cognition and waking experience into something greater and truer, the lifeline that connects us to a metaphysical dimension inhabited by qualities, energy and essences. We are more than our bodies and earthly experiences, we are "in this world...
