Our dog had another seizure last night. Fortunately I was still up, so was able to be there while it happened. Again, he seems none the worse for wear, other than the exhaustion from the seizure and the drugs that make him a tad wobbly for a few hours. I slept downstairs on the sofa to keep en eye on him, as per the vets advice, but no further happenings.

Now that he has had a second I guess it makes it more likely that there is an underlying problem. At nearly fifteen he has had a good innings so for however much longer we have him, we want to him to be happy and for us to enjoy his company.

I was able to watch three talks live at yesterday’s Stoicon plus some other bits as well.

Kai Whiting and Leonidas Konstantakos presented the first talk on The Equality of Moral Errors(sounds esoteric but was anything but), from which I learned about their book Being Better: Stoicism for a World Worth Living in.

I’ve added this to my reading list as it goes into Stoicism and its relevance to social justice, climate breakdown and global capitalism - some of the issues that have prompted me to look to philosophy for answers.

I learned that the library at my son’s new school has a post-apocalyptic section. 😆 In the fiction department, I might add.
