Somebody asked me how I felt about leaving Miami today, because, you know, I’m really “leaving” this time. I still don’t have a good answer. I imagine that I’ll actually have done the leaving before I do.

have finished the re-write and fix-ups of the introduction and first two sections of the newly re-formated thesis. some work on generality, hintikka and parsons, some more cutting out, and if i’m lucky, a new section on why arithmetic doesn’t have axioms in kant (even though he’s probably very wrong about this) to go. then i can finally focus my attention on fun, frivolous things...

After learning my flight was detained 4 hours, I heard the announcement: If...– Naomi Shihab Nye (b. 1952), “Wandering Around an Albuquerque Airport Terminal.” I think this poem may be making the rounds, this week, but that’s as it should be. (via awelltraveledwoman)
i know i’ve been doing this far too long when i can think, ‘oh, i need something to show that kant is, in fact, giving an account of how mathematical proof is possible too,’ and simply know that what i want is somewhere around A717/B745, in the discipline of pure reason.
