This guy loved questions.

Φιλερώτηση = phileró̱ti̱si̱, and I made it up!

Did you know that I have a degree in philosophy? It’s true. Somehow I’d just…forgotten that, over the past couple of years, but these days, I remember. Etymologically, philosophy is “love of wisdom,” and I will admit to loving wisdom. Sure! However: just lately, I’ve felt that wisdom is a nice end state, but that you don’t get to wisdom without loving questions.  Like, for their own damn sakes. ερώτηση, transliterated as eró̱ti̱si̱, is “question” or “inquiry.” So! Phileró̱ti̱si̱. Here we go.
