Digging my friends

Only a philosophy prof. is likely to turn up unexpectedly at your door with a shovel and a trunk full of canna lilies and start digging in the front of your house--all the while expounding to your daughters on the quality of your dirt, the meaning of life, and the importance of knowing about Pablo Neruda.

Let's brainstorm some texts. I think this could be a blast. Seriously! We need to do this!

  3. Let me think about it. Which means, several days of thinking.
