How does one go looking for the good life? What practices, rituals, philosophical or aesthetic perspectives will open our eyes to the paths we seek? Unitarian Universalist Ana Levy-Lyons offers a fresh reinterpretation of the Ten Commandments; poet Michael Robbins suggests the high-brow/low-brow mixture of poetry and pop music; lawyer Justin Jamail draws upon the New York School poets and medievalist Jacqueline de Weever captures something paradoxically ephemeral and pragmatic in images of the life of flora. Moderated by the Rev. John E. Denaro.
