"At home, thinking."

John Adams, second President of the United States, was known as a life-long diarist, and for his prolific correspondence with wife Abigail. He once made a journal entry which simply read, “at home, thinking.” This webpage links you to 34 different, downloadable PDF documents, results of my own, "at home, thinking," processes. They are listed in chronological order and some of the best articles can be found at the bottom.  Feel free to open them, print them, read them, and put your own cogitator to work. And there are eight more titles in gray, yet to come.
