My family and I had a day vacation - or "daycation" - on Saturday, and my wife took many photos, starting with the descent from our ivory tower:
Our kids were soon immersed in the material world's deceptive pleasures:
Here even more immersed:
Nor was I inured to the material world's allure:
The material world's deceptive magic - a floating red ball - entices the children in a game of Quidditch:
There are spirits in the material world:
Research into the emanations that Plotinus hypothsized had radiated down from "The One" to form this material world in which we find ourselves trapped:
But we afterwards made our escape from materiality back to our home in the clouds, led forward and upward by our very own 'Beatrice,' our 'Gretchen,' my self-effacing wife who takes all the photos and thereby remains invisible to the camera's eye . . .
