about ‘blogging the borderlands’

The inspiration for this blog came from New Zealand philosopher Dennis Dutton, who recorded a radio series on craft, kitsch, and forgery, terming them three “borderlands of art.”   That is such a great concept I am adopting it — and applying it to art, travel, religion, ideas….  Basically,  there is very little that the concept “borderland”cannot illuminate. 

As for who I am —

– a long-time writer on the arts, religion, education, travel, human interest… (more than you want to know on my home page)

–  first-time filmmaker: with Terry Nichelson I made “Chaplains Under Fire,” an independent documentary on military chaplains

– and  occasional blogger: in addition to this blog which I have merged with ArtLERT, I maintain and contribute to the Chaplains Under Fire blog.
