… awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

I created this blog to give myself a place to write out things I really believe. The fact that it is public forces me to ask myself if I really believe something to be true before I post it. I would rather this be true than popular. Please feel free to leave your comments. One flake of gold is more valuable than a whole mountainside of trash.

    I like what you have to say and the skill with which you say it. Please tell me something about the painting you have at the top of the blog. Thank you.

      Thank you for the kind words. The painting I use for the top banner is called “The Briar Wood” and it was painted by the British artist Edward Burne-Jones in the late 1880’s. It’s part of a series of four paintings called “The Legend of Briar Rose.” It depicts the legend commonly known as Sleeping Beauty, when the traveling knight discovers an entire kingdom under a spell. The other three paintings depict the slumbering King and his court; weavers sleeping at their looms; and Sleeping Beauty in her rose bower. Beneath each of the four paintings there is a short poem, and beneath the “Briar Wood” painting I use here, is written

      “The fateful slumber floats and flows
      About the tangle of the rose.
      But lo the fated hand and heart
      To rend the slumberous curse apart.”

      All four paintings today hang together at a house called Buscot Park, in Oxfordshire, England. From what I’ve been told, they are lovely to behold in person!

  2. Hi Daniel,

    I was going to e-mail this to you, but I couldn’t find an address. As you may or may not know, I and a few others have recently started an Orthosphere group blog at http://www.orthosphere.org. It’s still in the early stages, but Proph of Collapse: The Blog, Bonald of Throne and Altar, Jim Kalb, Kristor, Tom Bertonneau, Alan Roebuck, and Bruce Charlton are on board, and we already have a few posts up. Having recently discovered this blog and read the archives with admiration, I’m wondering if you would be interested in joining us. There are no set deadlines and no posting schedule, so you can contribute as much or as little as you please. You would also be free to repost or cross-post stuff from Out of Sleep.

    Interested? If so, drop me a line at tradisjonalisme AT gmail.com

    I happened upon your blog as a result of some Google inqueries of an endocrinological sort, and now here I am, moved to comment on your writings out of respect for their eloquence and for the authenticity of your demeanor, as well as on account of my surprise at having been transported by a mindless click on a random hyperlink into an unexpected experience of identification with the author of an article that held little personal interest to me at the beggining. But your work is really good–sensitive and sharp, and most importantly, honest. Bravo! Keep up the good work!
