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 Margaret, Pei Shen,
Jimi Hendrix, and William Blake.
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 philosophy of flying; Glenn Linnemann, who pointed out the meaning 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.
As a rockstar I have been guided by recordings of Frank Zappa,
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Laurie Anderson.
As a leader I have modeled myself on Princess Margaret, Richard
Nixon, John Milton, and Richard Lugar.
As 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.
