"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Christmas is icummen in

I have just succeeded in making the perfect bûche de nöel.

Angels wept. Strong men sank to their knees. Women fainted. Young children ran in terror and despair, convinced their futures no longer held meaning, for they had seen perfection.

I am pleased.
