Life and Work

I just love this picture. It's from Australia: Declan Smithies's 30 years birthday party and engagement party to Jenny. The other two in the picture are Rhiannon Long-Rabern and Holly Lawford-Smith. Leone Miller took the picture. God, I miss those guys. And yes, my hair is red. It changes color like leaves on a tree in autumn. Why is my hair red? Answer: I don't know. Why did I start the love blog? Answer: See my earlier post on stereotypes. Not all of us confuse career with life. Some of us have hobbies. I write on weird topics. That's my hobby. (love, I learned tonight, is a weird topic).

Hi Brit! I never saw this photo... love it! And miss you heaps! Great to see you're writing again, and congratulations on the new psychology position. You are full of surprises! Can't wait to see you again... xx Holly

Thanks Holly, can't wait to see you again either. Are you still in Berlin?

Declan Smithies said...

Berit, we all miss having you around in Canberra!

I look forward to your writings on love. Will you be developing a relativist or non-indexical contextualist semantics for love ascriptions?

Hi Declan, We should get together soon. Ohio is pretty close to Saint Louis, relatively speaking ;) I will, of course, be developing a non-indexical contextualist semantics for "love" ascriptions. Intuitively, that is just how the word functions in English. I still have to work out the details, though ;)
