On a personal note, Barbara, my wife, and I had the great fortune of spending several summers in Greece as guests of a conference sponsored by the University of Athens. During that time we traveled from Athens throughout the Aegean Sea including many of the sites once visited by Pericles as general, and admiral, when he was in military service representing the Delian League. These sites included Athens, Kavala, the island of Thasos, Samos, Patmos, Philippi, Ephesus, Olympia (Peloponnese), Delos, Delphi, Thera, Rhodes, Marseilles, Crete, as well as throughout Italy and Sicily, etc. In addition, during my time in the US Air Force I resided in France (Laon) for two years and traveled throughout Central and Northern Europe (including Norway and Denmark, as well as Germany). I also have presented papers at Oxford University and at international philosophical conferences sponsored by the University of Athens under the leadership of Professor Kanstantine Boudouris and a sponsoring international philosophy society. Mainly my time has been spent in the regions of the eastern and central Mediterranean Sea, (not including my years spent in Europe). Travel in Italy includes the excavation at Pompii and the Amalfi coast, but especially Marsilles.
