Welcome to The New American Renaissance
Welcome to The New American Renaissance! This monthly missive is dedicated to the intellectual, moral, and civic renewal of America It offers a space to struggle with important ideas related to truth, beauty, and the human experience.

I will also uncover & enjoy with you ample insight from the wisdom of the past, the semi-occasional epigram or witticism from Oscar Wilde and other bon-vivants, and some of my reflections on life and culture—all to the end of ennobling the mind and enlivening your day.
