Firstly, thank you for producing the Lucretius Today podcast. I have been catching up since August 2022. Since I was introduced to Epicurus in 2017, I have not met anyone in person who knows of his philosophy. I am thankful that this forum exists. I have always been shy online and I am still studying the basics, so please be patient with me. It took me some time to discover this forum. It has been a wonderful resource.
As recommended, I just finished reading Epicurus and His Philosophy. I am still processing the entire text and I may reread to collect quotes and notes. Overall, I am still absorbing the fundamentals of Epicurus. I am enjoying the process. I do believe that my life has improved since I began my studies.
Going forward, I want to be active on the forum. I really shouldn't be this anxious about it, but I am.
