I am a Reconciliationist advancing Imaginist Politics.
a Politist I originated myself at Wesleyan University (Structural Liberalism); proceeded to formal education in British Canonical
Literature, Poetic Theory, Chinese Poetry (Indiana University, A.B., 1986); Music History, Music Technology, Music Literature
(Indiana University, M.Mus., 1996); and continued studying on independent initiative topics such as European History, Military
Affairs, and Geo-Strategic Matters.
As a Goodman I have been brought through by Dori Pelz, Pei Shen, Jimi Hendrix,
and William Blake.
As a student I was mentored
by John Bitterley, Guy Foreman, Wayne Tarnow (La Porte Schools); and David Barton, Peter Lindenbaum, Lewis Rowell (Indiana
University). Especial gratitude is given to Myrtle Burns, who trained me in Americanism; Peter Marquis, who showed my spirit
the basics of flying; Glenn Linnemann, who pointed out the maening of meaning; Robert Demaree, who taught the Significance
of Music; and Irvine Yucheng Lo, who gave me purpose in chun-tsu.
As a structured
thinker I have modeled my schema on works by Northrop Frye, Harold Bloom, Philip Bobbitt, and Wilfrid Mellers.
a rockstar I have been guided by recordings of Frank Zappa, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Laurie Anderson.
a leader I have modeled myself on Princess Margaret, Richard Nixon, John Milton, and Richard Lugar.
a careerist I am still under the shadow of the Covering Cherub, but chagrin and dispossession aside, I stand, still.
a Christian my primary loyalty is to Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
