Corbin and Jonathan, my fiancee's two boys, love spinners on car wheels. Now I see them everywhere, even on shoes. Got me to thinking that we live such frenetic (from the Latin, phrenitis "inflammation of the brain") lives, that even paused at a traffic light or doorstep, we have to feel in motion. Maybe we ought to pause (if a full stop is impossible) and think on it.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
