I know that life is worth living. With the pandemic and Mau’s passing, however, I have felt sad and defeated. This Spark spoke to me as a reminder that I do believe this.

William James, the author of today’s Spark, was an American philosopher and psychologist, and the first educator to offer a psychology course in the United States. He is thought to be a leading thinker of the late nineteenth century and one of the most influential philosophers. James is considered to be the “Father of American psychology.” Along with Charles Sanders Peirce, he established the philosophical school known as pragmatism and is cited as one of the founders of functional psychology.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us continue to believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”
