Intellect & Romance is a blog about media, pop culture, politics, philosophy, and whatever else may come into my head while I’m driving. Assuming I remember enough of my musings when I get to a keyboard or a notebook, they will likely end up here.

Here I write about editing, writing, my favorite bits of fiction, role-playing games, human nature, and politics. It’s a broad selection, but all unified by the general theme of the importance of thoughtfulness, reason, care in relation to one another, and hope in the human tendency to come out ahead in spite of ourselves.

Cynics are born when romantic souls become disappointed that the world does not live up to its highest possibilities. Intellect & Romance is, at heart, my effort to remind myself that, as hurtful as the world can sometimes be, there are still things worth loving in it.
