I've encountered that moment in my conferencing preparations where I have to toss overboard most of my provisions so the fish can make use of them as they will. What better use for a blog, I thought to myself, before realizing how thoroughly I was insulting you. Sorry about that. 

But, incorrigible as I am, I offer you these extraneous and wasteful thoughts judged, by me, unworthy of or unhelpful for the great sea before us.

Every year we receive scholarship requests from educators who want to attend our conference but who simply cannot afford it. We understand, and it has always been our goal to be able to provide financial aid. Unfortunately, the nature of the conference has prohibited this.

I derive a particular enjoyment from having to fight through a book because I entered the text without the intellectual prerequisites to fully understand it.  Rene Guenon’s The Reign of Quantity and the Signs of the Times provided just such a challenge.  As one of those books too often quoted to be ignored, I decided to jump in, knowing that the water is deep.

The highest high point of classical education was its beginning. There never has been and never will be a poet as perfect as Homer. All of the Greeks acknowledged that he was their teacher. All of them walked down trails he blazed. Nobody compares but Moses and Christ.

Last week I had the privilege of attending the first annual CiRCE Summer Institute up in the rolling green mountains of Blowing Rock, NC. We spent the majority of our time reading and discussing (even singing!) Homer’s The Odyssey, interspersed with eating good food, conversing with friends new and old, and admiring the beauty of the surroundings. It was a momentous event for me—in many ways—and I left feeling refreshed, hopeful, and, most significantly, somehow changed.
