However, I was sent something during the week that brought tears to my eyes, and seemed a perfect example of the kinds of things that are "beautiful" in a way that might just transcend biology, attraction, and all that is easily explained.

I was talking to my deep thinking friend, Monica, the other day and she brought this up. Her question was, do animals have an aesthetic sense? Do they stop and gasp in wonder at a starry sky or soaring vista?? Is the concept and experience of "beauty" something unique to conscious thinking... or not?

I'm not sure why I've had so little to write, of late. There are a few "common-sense" factors. Work has been very busy, most of the time - and though I'm enjoying it (most days) I do tend to come home "knackered", and without the available brain-space to put anything very coherent together. However, even on the days when I'm not working, my head hasn't really been in the right space for writing.
