My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wakefulness, empathy, gratitude, enthusiasm...and stuff.

I like to read books, scribble down fragments of thoughts, drink coffee, get jacked at the gym, take tennis lessons from my dad, and play the occasional lick on a borrowed mandolin, banjo, or ukulele. I like most things, really.

Being an incorrigible solipsist by nature and a Hegelian by training, I have this sneaking suspicion that God lives inside my head, which doesn't exist, and that he achieves this feat by weaving himself into a complex and ever-vanishing pattern of words and sense-impressions which coalesce to form the tenacious little light show we call "world".

Basically I'm looking for a woman who wants to use me for my extensive Criterion bluray collection. (85 releases and counting.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting every day with a grapefruit, brewing world-class coffee, doing research, working on my thesis, going to the gym, calling my mom, working nights.

Worshipping life in my own way.*

*Striving to sustain the twin constituents of authentic living as I understand it: divine madness and ethical commitment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
thinking with pain, always in the hope of grasping life with a corresponding degree of joy.

Causing laughter and other agreeable sensations.

Kierkegaard, Hegel, Fichte, Schelling, Kant, Pessoa, Stanley Rosen, some Blanchot, some Barthes, some Buber, some Christian theology, Schiller's essays, the odd book on physics for the layman, Moby-Dick is probably my favorite novel, The Sound and the Fury is up there, John Banville writes the prettiest sentence in the room, then again so does Updike (of whom Banville himself once wrote: "No one else I know of, simply no one, writes this well.")

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This week: Moonlight, night air, scent of woodsmoke, the shimmer of a lake, loon calls in the distance, coffee in the morning.

In general: the annual trip to rehoboth beach with rob and Jeremiah, everything about autumn, coffee, childhood feeling-memories, everything about women, paradox/dialectic/the splendor and the humor of it and the medium in which it all swims: imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My celebrity crushes, blue merle puppies, and how the condition of the possibility is the condition of the impossibility.

YOLO -- over and over again, eternally.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I already admitted that I believe god lives inside my head, what else do you want?

Part of me wishes my comportment were more like that of the late William F. Buckley.

I was on a soap opera for five years.
