I’ve just finished Colin McGinns book The Making of a Philosopher, the story of how he “became” a philosopher, and his life. Why have I put “became” in quotes? Because I’m not entirely sure you can choose to become a philosopher. It is a state of mind, which is with you from the moment when your braincells start to form in the womb, and leads you to ask such questions as why is a tree called a tree, and whit is. tree anyway? To be honest, I found the book to be quite gripping. It’s made me want to read other similar books.
This mornings walk was very pleasant, the skies are really brightening now. Although at around 6.5C it felt chilly if you were wrapped up warm it was lovely walking weather. I’m not sure it’s going to stay like that as rain is forecast later.
The moon looked quite large on the walk. Apparently, it is called the Worm Moon, being that last full moon of Winter. Th picture does not do it justice, it was getting close to the horizon.
I’ve been sat in the office doing bits and pieces for the last two hours. I’ve had a cat asleep in the chair next to me all that time. Nice.
