I am writing a metaphysic, provisionally titled "Everything, Briefly". The writing of a metaphysic is more than the mere writing of it. A range of things needs to be in place. I have now spent a month in preparation for a new revision, and today began with the actual crafting of it. Yesterday wife E said yes, invest your time and energies in this, it takes priority over the love of money -- and I hadn't asked. That was very important to me.
