New Things from Last Year

Three “big” good things from my last year to be thankful for are:

Of course, my new house, of which I’ve posted more than enough pictures, but as rooms get remodeled, I will continue to post more. Here’s the guest bedroom’s new look.

And of course this little light of mine came out in 2007.

And also another book with my name attached to it came out in Japan this past November. “Kant: For Eternal Peace” is a bilingual book that presents the peace theories of philosopher Immanuel Kant to young adults. I did English translations of excerpts of Kant’s philosophy for the book. I’m particularly proud to have been part of making a book that promotes an understanding of the concept of peace in these war-storied recent years.

There were so many good things in the past year for me, but I won’t list them all. I hope 2008 is as good to me, and I hope it is to everyone else as well. Life doesn’t work that way, of course, but I hope for it even so.

Happy New Year.
