The Benevolent Universe Premise.

As I understand it, objectively, the universe is neutral but supports our efforts toward living, simply because the universe is our natural home - in this sense, it is benevolently disposed toward us.

Mrs Taggart and the Teenage Dagny

One of the factors of Ayn Rand’s novel writing that tends to be overlooked is her brilliant use of humour. Her pen scribed such a sharp wit at times it brings to mind the works of Jane Austen.

Where are all the Objectobabes?

I’d like to say I coined the phrase "Objectobabe," but I think it originally came from Boaz the Boor if I remember correctly.

Romantic Realists of yesteryear.

Calling on all people with artistic knowledge! Apart from Auguste Rodin, which historical artists would fall into the Romantic Realism category? I'm especially interested in painters. I would appreciate any suggestions for a project I'm currently working on - especially artists AFTER the 1700's.

A War Vet's Fatigue

(I received this letter from a friend. I think it sums up pretty well the sickening realities facing an old war Vet in today as well as yesterday's political climate).

"I'm Tired"

Two weeks ago, as I was starting my sixth month of duty in Iraq, I was forced to return to the USA for surgery for an injury I sustained prior to my deployment. With luck, I'll return to Iraq to finish my tour.

Little Miss Sunshine - a little treasure.

We enjoyed this film so much. We watched it as a family, laughing and giggling our heads off. What fun! It was so refreshing to watch an ordinary family, with all its quirks and foibles, enjoy an adventure together against all odds.

The powerful beauty of Liszt

Submitted by Olivia on Thu, 2006-09-21 23:08

Not long before my mother died (aged only 53), she ordered me a CD of Franz Liszt "The Two Piano Concertos" and "The Piano Sonata" played by Sviatoslav Richter and Kirill Kondrashin with the London Symphony Orchestra (remastered from a 1961 recording).

Montessori Education

Olivia's picture
Submitted by Olivia on Thu, 2006-08-24 06:46

I'll start this thread from Kelly's daughter's photo, as neither Adam nor Peter seems willing. Gentleman, feel free to have it out on this one.

I would be very interested in hearing different people's experiences of Montessori or pseudo-Montessori schools. I think we can all agree that Maria Montessori had a formidable understanding of a child's mind and educational requirements. I personally have not had a good experience within a Montessori based system, but I can see it largely depends upon the sense of life infused in the teacher/directress as to whether the quality of teaching is valuable or not. Perhaps people would care to comment...

A History of Violence

Olivia's picture
Submitted by Olivia on Thu, 2006-06-15 00:45

Has anyone else seen this film? It rocks! It stars Viggo Mortensen and is about an ordinary family man whose past descends upon him with a fury. Viggo truly kicks ass and the violence (self defense) is... well, very satisfying. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It also depicts the couples' sexuality in an interesting way. They start out with a coy, kind of self conscious playfulness which turns into something else entirely once the other side of Viggo's character comes out.
