That's great, Jane - thanks.

I feel that I'm in very good company whenever I visit your lovely blog.

As a person who enjoys debate surrounding progressive political ideology, one of my favorite Epictetus instructions says that,
if any person would pursue philosophy, their first task is to throw away conceit... because it's impossible for a person to begin to learn when they have a conceit that "they already know."

Or, as Krishnamurti said, "that which is truly sacred is beyond the measure of time; it is not to be found within the field of the known."

Sometimes, especially in politics, we sillies get carried away and think we have the answers before we have the answers.

By the way, I've added you to my list of Women in Political Blogging. I realize that you don't concentrate on politics, but I consider your ideas to be fine food for philosophical thought.

Thanks again. Your blog always feels like a sort of homecoming to me.
