“All of us are engaged daily with works of art, even if we are neither professionals nor amateur artists. We read books, we listen to music, we look at posters, we admire flower arrangements. Art, as I am using the word, does not include just “high art”, that is, painting, sculpture, poetry, classical music, but also the more popular expressions – the novel, the theatre, the cinema, popular music and rock. In fact, there is a very real sense in which the Christian life itself should be our greatest work of art. Even for the great artist, the most crucial work of art is his life.”

Lewis's quote has become once again relevant as drafting women has become something for serious consideration among the American Chiefs of State. Although I am not a hundred percent certain where I stand on the matter, I have become... Continue Reading →

Mooreeffoc

Some interesting thoughts on "mooreeffoc" - a term touched on my Dickens, embraced by Chesterton and elaborated upon by Tolkien. I had come into contact with "mooreeffoc" from my readings of Chesterton, but it's great to see other people considering such a wonderful idea. Sierra Highland Inky Fool But the greatest, the most exalted, the... Continue Reading →

Inspiration

When it comes to writing, sometimes you look about you and think - what am I going to write about today? It's a good question because time isn't something of which we have an abundance and there are days when I feel the clock ticking. During these seasons of pressure and stress, I end up...
