winter 2019

See the site home page, left column, for the current update.

For a good story of a ‘worthwhile’ life” is intentionally abstract, but pertinent to upcoming additions to the site that aim for a better sense of being well, relative to conceptual inquiry and good thinking.

December 22, 2018 | I’ m dismayed by current trends in news, but don’t want to write about it now (having put too much time into commenting at articles of the NYTimes and Washington Post)—except to say that a risk of being a junkie is making oneself sick of the involvement.

My conceptual work is progressing well; I’m working intensively, really. But I’m not ready to begin revising the Website.

I feel bad about that because I have very much to share and don’t want to be a regular disappointment via vapid update notes like this, time after time.

My online issue is common to writing anything complex: Introductory writing is done nearly last (or an article Abstract emerges nearly last).

This Website is intended to be an entrance into a long path, going toward difficult work which is worthwhile to me, of course; but has no end goal (like going toward a horizon: it recedes, like a rainbow).

Sharing online has little point, if that’s not worthwhile for a reader, too: engaging, accessible, maybe useful, and, I hope, promising to others for follow up.

But that happens in light of the odyssey that evinces postcards home. The trip is another kind of addictive involvement. “No time now to call home! Sorry.”
