          Earlier today I posted an essay from Brain Pickings on The Daily Stoic. Aeon Essays offers here another perspective on stoicism for our times and an overview of the major ideas of stoicism from ancient Rome. Lary Wallace challenges the misconceptions about Stoicism that abound in modern life and offers insights into how it can help us through difficult times.    

          The images are from the wonderful Buddha Doodles and serve as a Zen counterpoint to the essay.
