David Lindsay on His Birthplace

This post is for kushibo, who, commenting on a post this past weekend — Europe's Only Buddhist State — said, "I always like hearing about geographical oddities."

"My father was Scottish, and my mother is from my birthplace," which David Lindsay called a "super-loyal British Overseas Territory" in his correcttion to my speculation that he was an Englishman in a post on this blog last month — David Lindsay on the Origins of the American Republic. In a post today, Mr. Lindsay calls his birthplace "quite possibly the most completely, exuberantly Creole culture on earth where these and so many other things are concerned" — The Family Way. "Nothing could be more alien to the way of thinking than the idea of preserving the purity of a tribe, a clan or a caste."
