Ode on a Grecian Blog

"Beauty is truth, truth beauty," - that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
--George Keats

My original purpose for this blog was to resolve many conflicting ideas in my head about the nature of truth, it's relation to Judaism, and specifically to my own life. However, sometimes this blog takes me away from the analytical and philosophical and into more right-brain areas. Occasionally, I put up poems that have really affected me, sometimes quotes from literature or Torah.

I was originally uncomfortable with doing this because I felt I was somewhat bait-and-switching my (growing) audience. But I think I'll keep doing this for the immediate future. Sometimes truth can be found in experience and not analysis.
