By Way of Introduction: Presenting Fernando
And now, a word from fernando, to brighten your day and keep you safe.
It’s rather exciting to be seeing Push of Pikes growing. The admins are friends of mine from college, and I watched the blog get started. Now that I’m posting on it myself, I’m honored to be part of this expansion. Like James and Nathan, I’m a member of the Torrey Honors Institute. The years I spent there shaped me, I am convinced, for the better. Torrey made a huge impact on my life, one that continues. That impact is part of why I’m here, posting on Push of Pikes, after a particular post on my own blog was linked here. Though all of the authors here have our differences, we share the same commitment to Goodness and the Truth.
For me, that means having walked the Canterbury Road, and worshiping God as part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion, according to the forms in the Book of Common Prayer. I try to live my life sacramentally, both in community and in private meditations. In my studies, I have focused on literature and poetics, and grammar. Thus, my role here on the blog will mostly be editorial — a role I will thankfully share with the Beautiful and talented Miss Stevans, who will be introducing herself soon enough. However, posts from me will probably not be uncommon, and when you see them you can expect them to have a bookish nature.
Otherwise, you can find my other posts on things that interest me and me alone — science fiction, literary criticism, games, comic books, Milton and Plato — at my own site, A Diversity of Lions. Either here, or there, I look forward to sharing thoughts with you, dear Reader.
