Why I blog so rarely

 I am not at all so much in love with my thoughts . . .  
 my motto: "bene vixit qui bene latuit."

from Descartes' Jan. 10, 1634 letter to Marin Mersenne ("the father of acoustics").

The Latin motto is discussed a bit here.

The letter is discussed a bit here (from 1966).  It was quoted last month in a book review here.

Someone may ask: Does TiR mean somehow to equate this pointless blog with the subject of Descartes' letter, his treatise, The World?

We reply: Now you're just being ridiculous .
