After this long hiatus, I’m at it again. The original purpose of this blog was to work out some of the ideas that are associated with my Ph.D. dissertation. And now–the actual writing has begun. What I foresee is more entries, less formality, more kvetching, and actual draft pieces from the writing. Comments, suggestions, critiques welcome at this point. I’m at the writing every day, keeping a log, placing one word in front of the next, the “long march” has begun.
Quote of the day, from Dale Pendell’s wonderful trilogy.
If some study enlightenment, we study illusion. We seek medicine in the very poison that has seduced us. The mind, we might say, is too much with us, so let’s heap on some more.
