A Bit More

The Dull Stuff

I am 30 years old; a man; a hus­band; a stay-at-home fa­ther of two boys; a neigh­bor and a wit­ness; a do­mes­ti­cated but not too emas­cu­lated house­keeper; a pass­able home cook; a fol­lower and dis­ci­ple oChrist Je­sus; an epis­co­palian of some­what high­ish but mostly lat­i­tu­di­nar­ian church­man­ship; an off-and-on stu­dent pur­su­ing an eventual de­gree in Eng­lish lan­guage and let­ters with a mi­nor em­pha­sis in philol­ogy — i.e., his­tor­i­cal lin­guis­tics; an in­cor­ri­gi­ble habitué of the works of Dr Samuel John­son — a ver­i­ta­ble john­son­ian by all ac­counts; as well as a tolkien­ian, hook­er­ian, and chester­ton­ian.

I am also a long-term as­pi­rant to the priest­hood of the Epis­co­pal Church life­long as­pi­rant to serve, rec­on­cile, and teach my fel­low man; currently the Communication Coördinator for Trinity Church, Princeton; for­merly the Mis­sioner for Com­mu­ni­ca­tion in the Epis­co­pal Dio­cese of Beth­le­hem; an in­sup­press­ible scrivener of the worst sort; a ver­si­fier who feigns to be a poet; a maker: type­set­ter, printer, sta­tioner, il­lus­tra­tor, book­binder, web de­signer, re­storer of fiddly bits, tin­kerer, butcher, baker, can­dle­stick maker, and domestic wielder of the universal stick.

And, I am finally an ec­cen­tric (synonymous with mad) con­form­ing non-con­formist who is non-tra­di­tion­ally tra­di­tional; an individualist and collectivist who doesn’t understand the distinction; a classical conservative in some senses, a classical liberal in others, a democratic libertarian-socialist if pressed for a pragmatic label; a chris­t­ian hu­man­ist; someone comfortable with a plurality of epistemologies operating in tandem and tension; a principled free speech absolutist; a defender of untrammeled freedom of intellectual inquiry ; “not what you call refined and not what you would call unrefined,” I am a bird person, a parrot keeper; a fair-minded person having an es­pe­cial de­vo­tion to actively living — rather than merely advocating or virtue signaling— for the equal rights and opportunities of the work­ing classes, women, per­sons of color, and sexual minorities; as well as an environmental conservationist with a commitment to architectural preservation and sustainable urban development.
