The terrifying burden of daily responsibility

Even among the few fragments of thought we have from the Pre-Socratic philosophers, we find there the conceptual armature upon which hang our most profound debates today. For all of our modern scientific and technological sophistication, the questions that needle us remain remarkably constant. See this week's Musing.

Meanwhile, we had the eclipse of the moon. I had all the neighbors watching. Unfortunately, our eastern horizon was cloudy so we only saw the emergence of the moon from the umbra. Still, all in all, a lovely evening's gift.
