Welcome to The Dancing Paladin.

This blog is about my own particular interpretation and approach to the art of living.  Here, by “art of living” I mean my personal vision for an ideal way to live with strength, courage, compassion and virtue.  There is room, in this vision, for material success, social advancement and all the worldly things that most of us desire, and these subjects will also be examined. But I approach them from the perspective of one who chooses to live a life of dynamic, forceful action balanced in equal parts by quiet reflection and introspection.

Everyone’s idea of what virtue is – as well as to what extent it is possible or even necessary  – is different and naturally I do not expect anyone to agree with the opinions stated herein. What I do expect is that if you are at all interested in this subject matter, then you will find the contents of this blog to be well-written, thought-provoking, possibly useful and perhaps even entertaining.

That is all.
