Hello I’m James

I share reviews, poetry and reflections on spirituality. I value community, words and music.

I have written reviews of Emily Wilson’s translation of the Odyssey and pianist Víkingur Ólaffson playing the music of Bach. I have explored Charles Taylor’s chapter on Augustine’s view of the self.

I enjoy writing poetry and prose:

underneath the thanks, lamenting,
crises and joy this earth moves on
in its project of re-creation

That rich soil beneath our feet
