LIFE AS SIMPLE PLEASURE
Epicurus, the philosopher, saw the goal of life as being simple pleasure. Ironically, we have come to associate his name with gourmet eating and sensuality but that was not at all his intent. The motto of his Florentine academy was displayed on a banner that read: Pleasure in the Present.
Is this not one of the primary reminders given to us by Christmas?
