Lifeshocks

So I’m reading a book. Actually, since last writing about books here, I’ve gone through around twenty, but the book I’m reading now (in hardcover no less) seems fitting for this blog. Especially, it seems fitting because I’m not sure many people will hear about it for a while, and I think the concept is…

Justice

On a night like tonight I ask a question close to, “Does calling it karma make it easier to bear?” ‘It’ being my self, I think. I’m taking legal classes lately, for all sorts of reasons, but mainly because it feels like the right thing at this time, a next logical step. I feel at…

Complexity and View
