Life is a beautiful, beautiful thing. This blog seeks to celebrate the finer points of living: travel, language, poetry, art, nature, philosophy, adventure, and random observation.

About "The Art of Living"
The name "The Art of Living" is derived from a collection of essays written by Lin Yutang, a great modern Chinese thinker, writer, inventor, and linguist. In 2006, I began writing my own Art of Living to serve as an honors thesis for my degree in philosophy. The result was a 70-page work of creative philosophy, which can be downloaded here. Check it out-- it's a good, thoughtful, happy read.
Spare a Dollar?
When people tell me they love reading my blog, I tell them I love writing it.
But labor of love that it is, writing for and maintaining this blog does take up a significant amount of time, as well as internet access that is not free.
