No Proof Against the Wind
[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]
And weather in the heart alike come on
Regardless of prediction.
-- Adrienne Rich, “Storm Warnings”
(incidentally one of the best poems ever written, IMHO)
Last year, the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan forced the Alabama Philosophical Society to relocate its annual conference from delightful Orange Beach to less-delightful downtown Mobile. This year, Katrina's aftermath has closed the entire Alabama coast to us. Score so far: Matter 2, Mind 0.
But ya can't stop the signal. Our annual meeting is proceeding as scheduled, October 21-22, only at a new inland location: Montevallo, home of the University of Montevallo -- and more importantly of the Eclipse, Montevallo's philosopher-owned café and bookstore. (Hotel and driving info here.) Be there or B2!
