Ringing in the New Year in Athens

I am here in Athens to ring in the new year.  Here’s the view out the window from my desk.

While I have been here, I have walked down the streets of the agora where Socrates and Plato walked.  I have thought, “That is absolutely amazing that they had such an advanced view 2500 years ago.”  They thought that pretty much anything was open for discussion and analysis, and that logic and reason ought to prevail.  That’s a pretty good ideal…let’s have more of that.

  1. Very insightful and inspiring! I agree that friendship is more important than politics. I’m awestruck by your view from your desk!! Happy New Year John!
