Shameless Self-Promotion Sunday

Much of what gets posted on this blog is essentially ephemera — random thoughts, idle speculation, little morsels of meaning, and the occasional snapshot. But I do also produce more cohesive work in my “real life” as a historian and philosopher of science. Believe me, in the age of the corporate university, that’s a lot less glamorous than it sounds.

Anyway, without further ado (well, maybe a bit more ado) here’s a link to a semi-popular piece that I wrote last spring in the literary e-magazine Berfrois about breathing, mindfulness and their simple transformative potential.

So take a deep breath and dive right in!

    An old paper by Kim McCone on pious effusions and some aspects of etymology of broimm (fart) and brahma (effusion, prayer spirit). I thought you may like it: discussion of possible origin is interesting:

    @Jeb: This is actually a really interesting (and bizarre) angle on the whole breath and breathing etymology. Thanks for the link!
