CSH WORLD CONGRESS IN OCTOBERThe Next Ancient WorldLots of NIGHTSIDER posts this month!

MAY: Two new Web sites this month in honor of a new camera: The traditional photography blog, Visions of Order, and a second photography blog, lomogblog.

Nightsiders also continues to get a lot of attention from me. Another lens and the recent Adobe Photoshop upgrade are coming this week, so there's more photo fun in store for me.

As far as reading goes, I am going back through Faber's amazing book on the psychology of religious belief. And I am also reading Rorty's new book for the third time.

JUNE: Still taking lots of photos for Visions of Order, and my other photography site, lomogblog. And I am still reading back through Faber's amazing book on the psychology of religious belief and Rorty's new book for the third time. Sometimes 10 minutes of reading provides enough inspiration for an entire day. Also listening to "The Birth of the Modern Mind: The Intellectual History of the 17th and 18th Centuries," by Alan Charles Kors,* a series of lectures from The Teaching Company. Wonderful!

See my TAGS area in Flickr. Main areas are PHOTO, LOMO, SLIDESHOW and NS, which stands for "Nightsiders." I am planning to do a photo-links page in the near future.

*Kors notes Voltaire's prayer: "I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it!"

JULY: Still taking lots of pictures and reading the same books, with the addition of "The Promise of Pragmatism: Modernism and The Crisis of Knowledge and Authority," by John Diggens. This is the second read-through on Diggins. A wonderful book!

See new Web page on my various photos sites and blogs.

AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER: Still taking lots of photos, but I have stopped updating the various photo blogs because it makes no sense to move images off Flickr, which is a great place to show photos and get feedback. See my Flickr photostream.

Reading Jonathan Lear's wonderful "Freud" and just posted an Amazon review.

OCTOBER: Answer to Joe. Don't miss Flickr!

NOVEMBER: "Birth," Belief and Past Lives: Nicole!
Belief is Found Over All The Tree Passage
