Thanks, Dean, for the comment about Kant. To be honest I haven't read Kant since I was in high school, which was a v-e-r-y long time ago. I probably discarded his aesthetics (whatever they were) along with everybody else's, but I thought his "maxim" was particularly apt in the present case: If we all had responses requesting a "check in," the list would be dysfunctional.P.S Judy, I will leave Kant to you. I have never liked his ethics. More of a Nietsche man at heart. I like that he tells us to live an aesthetic life and also when he tells us what is wrong with Kant.
As for Nietsche -- I suppose no one with so many afterlives can be all bad, but I prefer Freud.
PS. Do we, does anybody, have an "aesthetics" any more? Like what? In photography?
