Just a word to thank those of you who check in on "Persist: The Blog" from time to time. I trust that, if you find no current entries, you toggle over to The Buddha Diaries, where I write entries almost every day. All of them, I think, are relevant to the issue at hand here. In today's entry you'll find a wish for the New Year. I wish you all the most creative and successful of all years!

For those who were interested in the dilemma I referred to a couple of days ago, in my entry titled "Distraction," a follow-up piece in today's entry in The Buddha Diaries may also be of interest. It's called "Speaking of Nazis..." With reference, particularly, to the life and work of Martin Heidegger, it raises a familiar question: is it possible to be a really bad person and a good artist--or, in Heidegger's case, philosopher/writer? Conversely, does being a really good person preclude the possibility of being a really good artist? (I don't come up with an answer!)
