2022 updates

Love of ascending (and descending)” today completes my current, 4-part obsession with love, which is really ardent caring, in many ways and degrees.
Cutely titled “love notes” (Oct. 9) was actually analytical, but it links to earlier points of effusively loving to be. I discussed “‘mindfulness’” (Oct. 14), so called,
in a conceptual way. And “‘love’ in empirical research” (Oct. 21)

September 2022
thinking of ‘a diversity of selves’” (Sept. 3) became the first of two parts: “more diversity of selves” (Sept. 5). That is followed by more-formal “better self-enabling for better humanity we share” today.

“Bibliophilia” (Nov. 2021) gained a second section, “playing to a muse,” and
I renamed the page “wanting telicity of appellant cohering.”

Singularity of a still-flowering life” is a set of discursive episodes composed
of some pages recently listed here (now deleted from this page) and new pages, altogether having variable conceptual difficulty and variable creative license.

My title for them all may seem sentimentalist, but no more than the focus of humanistic psychology (and neo-Aristotelian ethics) on the value of flourishing—and fidelity to still flourishing is the best response to re-realizing one’s mortality.

The project continues the fun: “enthralling appeal”; or: How to arrange
30+ keynotes (future topic foci) into a short story.

May 7, 2022
A very short posting, “another lovely cohering,” implicitly expresses (by several links) a singularity of long flourishing life echoed in writerly moving on, beyond more-recent postings—a cohering passage from winter to spring as also “lovely,”
a term (to me) of diminutive endearing which, all in all, tropes a sense of lifeworldly ultimacy—remembered times, another Time—like some vista beyond capture, yet being no ephemeral rainbow, no cosmic Silence.

October 2021
I mused on a tropical muse.

August 2021

a singular pluralism of conceptual interests

Project-relevant discussions of 2019 and 2020 are listed at December’s “turn of
