Vacation time!

Time for yours truly to take a (deserved, I think) vacation to recharge my intellectual batteries and come back ready to put out new essays and podcasts.

The very word “vacation” comes from the Latin vacare, meaning to be empty, free, or at leisure. Which is precisely what I intend to do.

I will be back next month, eager as always to share my thoughts and engage with yours.

Until then, remember: Philosophia longa, vita brevis!


p.s.: in the meantime, you can still read plenty of my essays, check out my Stoic Meditations podcast, read one of my books, or simply browse through the archive of suggested weekly readings. Enjoy!
