Hey, everyone! So today’s challenge is technically to put forward a collage, but I’m bad at those, so instead you get me going back and giving you one of the days I missed. In this case, where my blog name came from.
The blog name predates me actually using the blog regularly– I’ve toyed with the notion of blogging on and off for years. I wanted a name that would sound interesting and sophisticated while conveying the kind of wisdom I wanted to communicate. And we’re back to that “the wisdom of the kitchen table” thing: practical was very important to me, because I wanted connect my observations about human nature to real life. At the same time, I wanted to be making wise observations about human nature that could be applied generally. So, “Practical Philosophy” to convey both the wise observations and the idea that it connected to reality.
