About this Blog
This blog began as a portfolio of some sort, but quickly evolved into a place where I collect notes, thoughts and observations on a wide variety of topics. Though I am trying to maintain a consistent theme (ie the reception of classical art), this blog is a project going through its own metamorphoses while my readings shift from art to philosophy, from ancient to modern and the other way around.
