For Just One Moment…: A Poem
Published by shellypruittjohnson
My name is Shelly Johnson, and I am a writer and philosopher with a Ph.D. in philosophy. One of my primary personal and philosophical interests is how we can learn to love ourselves and each other better in order to cultivate personal and political resilience. I teach ethics and a variety of other courses at a local college. I am the author of the blog Love is Stronger. I am also the author of three logic and critical thinking books for high school and middle school: _Argument Builder_, _Discovery of Deduction_ (co-author), and _Everyday Debate_, published by Classical Academic Press.

Absolutely beautiful! I did stop for just one minute while I read this. 🙂 And got a little teary-eyed too!
This is beautiful. Indeed, our bodies do amazing things.
Thank you so much, Brendan! I think so, too.
Indeed there is so much to love and be grateful for.
I think so, too, P!
What an inspiring poem! Each word permeated with love & light.
That is so kind, Jason! Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. It is much appreciated.
It was a pleasure, Shelly. I’ve also scanned a number of your posts and I applaud you with warm fuzzies. Your approach to bringing love back into philosophy is ever so practical. Unless we embody the good right down to our bones, virtue remains in the abstract.
Jason, this is really kind, and I agree. In my opinion authentic philosophy is actually the pursuit of love. That’s how Socrates seems to portray it in dialogues like the Symposium. I agree with him!
So nice to meet a kindred soul along the way. Let’s stay in touch okay!
Very kind, Jason. Let’s!
