About

A man’s work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
Albert Camus

The First Circle Pub is the cumulation of a decades long commitment to introspection and enlightenment.  Here, the contents of my head will long last find a digital home.  I’m no one special, just an absent minded philosopher on a pilgrim’s quest to share what I can with fellow travelers on the road while I still have time to do so.  Please join me if you wish, and perhaps together we can illuminate some small bits and pieces of this great mystery called life. Remember, virtue is its own reward, even in Hell. How we interact and treat others on this road in life we share, says as much about our own personal soul cage as it does the world we create to share.  Odin’s Rules of Hospitality rule supreme and are not to be ignored. And as always, to give form to the void, to find our voice in the tempest, to in fact get the impossible done, requires those three D’s: Duty, Dedication, and Determination.  Nothing worth doing, is ever easy. Some say moderation in all things, I say persistence.  Raise a horn and a toast to what dreams may come!
