The year, in review

My wife and child have been sleeping for what seems like days. They grunt and snore, but never seem to wake up. So I just sit in the dark here, wondering, will they ever wake up?

I'm helping a PhD student studying body and mind translate Martin Heidegger's 'Being and Time' into Japanese. I'm all up on Dasein now, and how extentia differs from existence. Well, sort of. Well, actually I have no idea what 90% of it means. I just sip my coffee, nod, and say, 'Well, you have to understand that "lies in" is a metaphor.'
