I tend to think about things. Maybe to excess. During the last 25 years of my life, I have taught philosophy for an assortment of institutions of higher education, but on July 1, 2013, I officially retired. During the 25 years previous to my engagement to philosophy, I was connected, both through teaching and practice, to a very different profession, meteorology. But I still think, and with the time on my hands that retirement brings, certainly to excess. This blog will be the repository of that excess, which gives it something of an outhouse atmosphere. I’ll try to provide language conducive to that atmosphere.
