Scribblerbean is a pseudonym that describes what I do (write) and what I love (a good cup of coffee, preferably single origin and fresh-roasted). The margins in the blog subtitle are a figurative way of describing how I spend my days. Along the edge of book or crowd, reading deeply, breathing ink-smell, and taking notes. I hope to share some of those experiences, learnings, and sightings here.

The philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein said, “The limits of my language are the limits of my world.” This is a scary notion. After years of getting paid to write about travel, food, and music it occurred to me that I had run out of words. So I made the decision to go back to school and do a degree in literature and creative writing. What better way to read the really good stuff,  learn some new words, and how best to use them. So sometimes I’ll write about what I’ve read and hope other litcritters will join the conversation.

I also love visiting far-off places, enough to have lived in some of them for a season. I favor breakfast over all meals, sleeping in man pyjamas, and think all things look better in the soft glow of a night-light.
