Upon my first Commons. It is with trepidation that I read the opening words of the title “Open access, open source, open to all”. I had thought of the Humanities Commons as being a professional site for those actually working in the academy. My association with the Humanities has been one of avocation. I neither publish in journals nor teach. I have a little niche in contributing to discussion lists and commenting on blogs. Back in the heyday of early academic blogging (2003) I was an avid pollinator. But dwelt in the interstices, never blogging under my own shingle.

My interests lie in literary studies, descriptions of how perception works, cognitive aspects of world making.
