I’m happier these days, writing in an in-between space between public and private, spurred on by the tiniest inkling of outside scrutiny, deciding to work on increasingly letting go of practical concepts such as age and time … of notions that I chose the big priorities of my life already and am supposed to make dueContinue reading “Starting Something”
There are transformative, ‘holy instants’ happening all the time.
I have a dear friend, or believe that I do… someone I love from afar these days, unable to quite trace the steps back to where we left off.

But certainly, the observer’s egoContinue reading “Compelling Patterns and Liberating Knowledge”
