The local food presented at Sunday’s Green Corn Project benefit was particularly wonderful. The crowd was wowed by Mulberry’s Gorgonzola stuffed dates wrapped in candied bacon, pear conserve and pumpkin butter from Confituras, Sticky Toffee Pudding Co.’s namesake, T salty caramel gelato, grilled salmon on arugula with chick peas and pomegranates from the Alamo Drafthouse, and Terry Conlan’s spicy deep fried black eyed pea fritters. It’s really marvelous a crisp, toasted crust topped with homemade sauce, local herbs and vegetables, cheeses from Anton Cheese Shop, and salumi and charcuterie from Salt Time and Kocurek Family Artisanal Charcuterie.

A photograph of Khan brandishing an AK 47 rifle was shared widely on social media last week, leaving his parents distraught.

To find meaning and significance in human life, there are some fundamental questions that must be wrestled with: Is meaning something that we have? Something that is added on to our being? Or, is meaning what we are fundamentally? Is meaning our existence?The proposed paper will explore these questions by examining the notions of essence and existence, meaning and significance, and monistic versus dualistic approaches to understanding the world. By pointing out some of the inconsistencies that occur in a dualist framework with regards to meaning as something additional to being, this paper will show that the unity within a monist paradigm secures meaning as inherent to human being, not something added to it, and so endorses a more robust understanding of meaning. This move highlights the contingency, and not self sufficiency, of human beings and all created things as meaning as being points to something beyond created things.The main support for this paper will come from the Dutch philosopher Herman Dooyeweerd (1894 1977), as well as from other philosophers working in the neo Calvinist tradition, such as Alvin Plantinga.
Eventually the power comes back on and the children go inside to warm up with a cup of hot cocoa. It ends with the children counting sheep to fall asleep and the lines, “Sleepyheads, dream of sleds.
