I saw again last night the Juliette Binoche film “Paris” (2009) that I’d seen when it was first released in the U.S., September 2009. I’d forgotten how depressive it could be for someone on the verge of suicide. But it’s not a suicidal movie; just the opposite! Latent to it is luscious validation of life. But someone on the edge of suicide could easily fail to see.

There are now 15 parts of the “summer 2017” project. Parts 7 through 15 were uploaded today.
Obscurity of some passages arises from my having settled on propos-
itions that are exact for me, for the sake of later explication as that to develop and clarify. Odd strings of subordinate phrasing aren’t about being “poetic,” but about fidelity to the episodes of narrating.
Appearance of non sequiturs arises from circumscribing a topic area, not presuming that I’m being clear, then pressing on. I’m trying to be exact about important themes. I’m sharing what exactly I want to further develop and clarify. I’m sharing what matters for developing a good sense (to me) of “mind evolving.”

There is no pure beginning.... The Oxford University Press 30%-off sale online caused me to see that there were no new books I have to have this week (a relief: I don’t know what to do with the ones I have, apart from the hundred-or-so supposed to be priorities for near-term prospecting). But I realized I really want to see what’s what with David Sobel’s From Valuing to Value, which is available at the library. So, out I went.
