Baron Verulam (Bacon’s title at the time of his death) would be 458 today. Celebrate by doing something philosophical. Go out and study something in the natural world, to try to understand how it became the way it is, what it does, and how it affects the world around it. A tree, a bird… Or compare the warmth of warm things, like wool, sunlight, and a dog’s belly. How are they the same and how are they different?
You could also whisk over to the online bookstore of your choice and snag a free copy of the second book in my Francis Bacon mystery series, Death by Disputation. This amazing global phenomenon will persist only until midnight Central Standard Time, Friday, January 25.
