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
