Seventy Moral (and Immoral) Polarities of the Everyday

Polarities is a set of seventy mini-meditations on opposite states of the moral or emotional life – goodness and badness; ugly and beautiful; quiet and raucous. Each item, in each polarity, is allowed to gather up a picture, a tale, or a logical adventure, and then to leave behind it multi-part reflections which play out in the reader's mind. The operational energy here is partly prayer or mantra and partly half-completed logical conundrum. Is there a new form of private devotional at work here?
