Our best, most helpful essays and links

Greetings everyone.

As summer is ending in the northern hemisphere and the autumnal equinox is upon us, we thought we would post this list of what we believe to be our best essays from this long, hot summer in the high desert.  We wanted to offer this list of essays (with links) to those WordPress readers who may not have seen them when they were first posted.  As many of these essays are over 1,000 words in length, they are better viewed and easier read on full screen computer monitors rather than on hand held devices.  To make it easier for prospective readers, we have listed the essays under appropriate category headings.  (For those essays that contain links to YouTube videos, we believe that most of these videos are still up on YouTube.)  So scroll down to find one or more categories of essays that interest you!  There are some gems to be uncovered if you will put in a little effort.

Please feel free to forward any of these links to any friends, relatives and/or associates who you think might be interested in reading and thinking about them.  As well, you may want to bookmark the link to this essay so you can browse its contents as you have time.

Here is the selected song for this essay, Come to Me by Hiroshima (1989):
