Halloween Hike

Long time, no post, not much positive to talk about, so I won't.  Instead, photos of a hike SoM (Sister of Mossy), my friend T, and I took this past weekend down south.

Engaged Reasonableness

"Adulthood, for Kant and for Neiman, “requires facing squarely the fact that you will never get the world you want, while refusing to talk yourself out of wanting it.” It is a state of neither easy cynicism nor na├»ve idealism, but of engaged reasonableness."

A.O. Scott, New York Times Sunday Book Review (June 15, 2015) of Susan Neiman's Why Grow Up? Farrar, Strauss, & Giroux, 2015.

I think this is where I have been stuck these past couple of months, facing the reality of my world and trying to figure out how to engage reasonably with it. Ah, the imminent arrival of a certain birthday...

Much better to just add a few photos of beautiful dogs instead of ruminating on philosophical questions that have been pestering us for at least 300 or 400 years.

DPNs--The Scourge of the World

DPN's--I hate them. They slide. They slide out. They misbehave. They are a curse.

Melted snowdrops on the Nandina sp. yesterday. The leaves turn red when freezing temperatures arrive.
