Illuminate Me - Liberal views | philosophy | art | politics | progressive thinking

David Price has spent two decades in the foothills of the Alps, in a tiny village where he indulged his passion for reading, painting, and working with hand tools. When he could no longer invent another renovation project on the old house, and when years of reading had finally broken down some of the most recalcitrant rigidities of his mind, he felt it was time to engage the world again.

But coming back, he couldn’t help but notice satellites of a new culture growing in the midst of a dominating, but unsustainable America.  This Web site is conceived as a way to fan the embers of new thought, new questions, and new solutions, as well as represent our diverse interests, from land use and food, to books, art, politics and spirituality. Now seems to be a good time to ask how  to create a sustainable culture that embraces both beauty and pleasure.  Everyone is welcome to speak up here, but artists and “creatives” are especially encouraged to offer their thoughts and feelings.

He proceeds with the question: how can ideas make things better?  And also, where is the wonder, the magic, the fun?



We invite artists, musicians, writers and progressive thinkers to join us in critiquing what’s wrong, as well as helping create a better way of life in America.
