Love & balance

Reporting season is off to a great start. 

"There's no place like home." Dorothy's mantra might be my philosophy in a nutshell, with the crucial qualifier that "home" is where you make it. One of the keys to happiness, surely, is learning how to be at home wherever the storm drops you. I don't think the Caped Crusader was at home in Gotham or in his batcave or anyplace. Poor benighted knight.

More reports today. The "Highlanders" in CoPhi will be talking Plato, Pyrrho, Socrates, Seneca, Epicurus, Aristotle, and Augustine on Love. They suggest we read Plato's Republic Bk VII (the Cave), some early Socratic dialogues, and the Symposium.

I'm sure that's just how it went down.

Then in HAP 101 Group #1 will make their case for "Balance" as the meaning of happiness, with respect to cycles of change, eastern and western approaches, brain science, coexistence, slavery, human and civil rights. 

Not sure if this is anything like what they have in mind, but what seems most unbalanced in many of our lives is time.
