“Significato” is the Italian word for “meaning” or “value”, as in “the meaning of life”. The Significato Newsletter displays links to new items published in our online Significato Journal. It is emailed for free to subscribers. To view an item in full, click on one of the links below.

From the Editors:
Dear Friends, A large gap occurred between this newsletter and the last one that we published in July. We were assembling content in October, when I received word that my older brother had been placed under hospice care. I dropped everything and traveled to San Francisco where I sat by my brother's bedside. We had a lovely time reconnecting after the long time since we'd last seen each other. He passed away on November 12th. I took some time after that to ponder about life. Please forgive the tardiness of this newsletter, but know that Peter and I send it offering you blessings and prayers for the New Year of 2015.
