We write for many reasons; some shared, some not. We write of our conversations, readings, cooking, and the view out the nearest window. We believe that a life, well-lived, is worth examination. Enjoy the conversation.
“On the other hand, if I say that it is the greatest good for a man to discuss virtue every day and those other things about which you hear me conversing and testing myself and others, for the unexamined life is not worth living for men, you will believe me even less. What I say is true, gentlemen, but it is not easy to convince you.”
Plato, Apology (38a)
