Productive Sabbatical

I've updated the webpage to include the fruits of my sabbatical in spring 2012. The sum-total in terms of publications was four books, three peer reviewed articles in journals, and two book reports. Next sabbatical I'm going to find a beach somewhere away from it all to meditate. Only another six and a half years!
See the link on right to my personal page if you are interested in any of the books.

Plotinus on Beauty

This afternoon I was reading Heisenberg on the Platonic conception of beauty in Plotinus, in a book by Wilber (sometimes life is that complex!)
Plotinus said, "Beauty is the translucence, through the material phenomenon, of the eternal splendor of the 'one'"
I happened to look up to see our black pug Molly resting her face on my leg. I said to her, "Molly, you probably don't realize it, but your beauty is a shining forth of the One who is in all that is." Molly sighed knowingly.
