Em meditação

Born April 26, 121 AD, roman emperor Marcus Aurelius was a lover of philosophy of the stoic stirpe and penned (in koine greek) one of my favorite books, The Meditations (circa 175 AD). It's a title I regularly return to, specialy when my abhorrement for the present-time established set of attiudes hits red. (Regrettably, in Aurelius case, the apple did fall far from the tree: his son, Commodus, was a racketeer and a villain.)
