Welcome to the Weekend Philosopher

I love philosophy, because I love thinking about problems that most people skim over to deal with more practical matters.  In addition to my B.A. in writing, I also have a B.A. in philosophy.  While I can't say I'm a philosopher, I can follow what a philosopher says (at least most of the time).  In college, I wrote some fine philosophical papers.  I love to argue a point, and that love of arguing served me well.

Blogspiration is over, and I felt like I should try something that would still allow me to contemplate deep questions about life.  They may not all be uplifting, but I hope to at least inspire  serious thought.

Now, like my badge says, I'm attempting to adopt the title of The Weekend Philosopher.  The rest of the time I'll be a writer, a mother, a wife, and a full time lunatic.  Still, once per weekend (the day itself depending on when I can spare the time to wax philosophical) I'll put on my philosopher's cap and ponder something.  It may be a quote, an issue in the real world, or anything else that gets the wheels in my head spinning in an interesting way.

I'll start next weekend with my philosophical meanderings.  I hope you'll stop by to hear what I have to say!


  1. Sounds interesting, look forward to reading your philosophical meanderings.

  2. The ravings of a philosphical lunatic! I like it.

  3. Sounds interesting - I'll be back to check it out! :)

  4. Hmm, I like this idea. I love debate for the sake of the art to. One of the reasons I like fantasy is because there is always a deep philosophy issue to be explored.

    Looking forward to the discussions.


  5. A great idea to replace Blogspiration with, can't wait to hear what you have to say :)

  6. I'm sure you will have some very entertaining philosophical musings!
