To clarify: the title is excerpted from Act 1 of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. The full quote goes:
"Light, seeking light, doth light of light beguile;
So ere you find where light in darkness lies,
Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes."
It's a warning against spending too much of your life in scholarly pursuits.

Very light blogging today. "She" has the house in turmoil, rearranging everything. I'm preparing a lecture for tomorrow. We're both tired from travel. Maybe I'll be able to put something together tomorrow.
