Up@dawn

Reflections caught at daybreak, in the spirit of Thoreau ("morning, the most memorable season of the day, is the awakening hour") and William James ("the really viital question for is all is, What is this world going to be? What is life eventually to make of itself?"), blogging at jposopher.blogspot.com and delightsprings.blogspot.com since 2007. Nashville TN.
