Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Zen and the art of jamais vu
"The real secret of magic is that the world is made of words , and
if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it
whatever you wish.”
– Terence McKenna
Excerpts from the journal:
- Sanity is paid for with great madness.
- I'm a rational being who suffers from episodes of romanticism. It
is a dichotomy for which I've yet to resolve... It's resolution is
perpetually perched on the tip of my brain. Always enthralled. What
is life if it is not washed with a rush of ideas, emotions, and
- I am uncomfortable with the deceleration that "I am an artist". I
am simply a person who sometimes makes things. And sometimes a
person who declares that he is an artist.
- The feeling I get from some ambient melodies, Aphex Twin -
Rhubarb for instance, is that I'm dying peacefully - that this is
what I would hear when I die. The memories would flood in a
beautiful instant and these memories would be hazy. Of simple
things; A flower that caught me when I was three. The haze of that
innocent time when the world was huge and everything in it was new.
Sensations and the bizarre abstract feelings that are wrapped
within them return.
- At the height of happiness one must never forget the thread on
which it hangs. For it will one day break, giving way to that chasm
that must exist for there to be any reason for us to develop the
strength to grasp it.
- With you I felt like the river had broke its way. Pushing against
its direction, as if to deny its course. But you did direct this
moment, and I did accept. And I touched your breath with a force
that resented your ebb. Why is it that you’ve denied me? Why have
you insisted upon a course predetermined by some intention that was
bent on the sea. Do you not dream of me? Do you not see within me
the gold of such things? Perhaps you are bent on something more
like the sun. More like the wind blowing over the waves, causing
them to break.
My spelling is poor. I'm slightly embarrassed by the fact, but
ultimately words are only a delivery system for ideas. I place a
far greater importance on syntax and semantics than word spelling.
So, no, I will not play scrabble with you, but I will engage you
with meaningful and structured conversation if you wish.
Life is too short not to take it serious.
Also, I'm a huge goof off...

off as either off-putting, or mysterious and attractive.
