From: Aristotle
Re: "Blood Libel"

"It is useful to have examined the number of meanings of a term...for clearness' sake (for a person is more likely to know what it is he asserts, if it has been made clear to him how many meanings it may have)."


"We ought to use our terms to mean the same things as most people mean by them."

--Aristotle

what people are saying about drew

"Thank you for the exceptional contribution you made to the development of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium. It's hard to imagine the direction we would have taken and the end we would have arrived at had you not crossed our path however many months ago. It isn't just the information you shared with us about Thomas Berry's work; it's the way you have internalized it and woven it into your own soul that made it so potent, and in the end, caused us to revise the entire Symposium based on the principles he identified and that you shared so eloquently. Your work with the interviews was nothing short of inspired. In addition to helping us connect with the right people to use, your skill both in creating thoughtful questions and then engaging the interviewees was masterful. Drew, you have been a team player par excellence. It was a privilege and pleasure to work with you."
