I am an artist (visual arts mostly), and sometimes work as a software engineer, most recently at The New York Times.
Otherwise, traveling around the world, focusing on that which I enjoy most -- I've yet to find a place or culture I haven't absolutely fallen in love with.
I believe the purpose of life is to live; follow your heart, follow your bliss, just be-- when there is no goal there is a spontaneous and uninhibited energy, an emergent freedom of being and the continuous discovery of life in each moment --and with that awareness life is transformed into a joyous innocence of being.
I think and meditate a lot on kundalini tantra, meditative states of nondualism, and nirvikalpa samadhi. These are themes that show up in my artwork, and give language to transcendent experiences.
* there's often a lot of confusion surrounding tantra, specifically about tantric sex. I wish we lived in a more sex positive culture where this was easy to explain -- think of Tantra as an approach to Love, Sex, Food, Friends, Travel, and Art. If you're interested or even curious I'm more than happy to discuss and/or learn more.
Letting go of ego, maintaining an almost childlike awe to the world around us
I love movies, from terrible B-list cult classics like Buckaroo Banzai to the more mainstream classics like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, A Clockwork Orange, Amelie, The Big Lebowski, Into the Wild, Trainspotting, Twelve Monkeys, The Princess Bride, Tampopo, etc ... I recently fell in love with Only Lovers Left Alive
I eat almost everything (no matter where on earth I find myself, if I see someone eating something, then it must be edible so I'll happily dig in), I especially love Korean and Vietnamese food, French desserts, delicious wines too complex for my limited understanding of wine, well-brewed beers without pretense, and most of all new foods I've yet to experience!
So perhaps my current, soon to be lost, necessities includes:
+ transcendent bliss
+ awareness of beauty
+ loving kindness
And while I think a lot, I find the process limiting and self-exhausting.
In the exhaustion of thought, there is a silence of mind and the experience of the inexhaustible, a blissful beautiful freedom, a choiceless awareness of the world as it truly exists. The experience seems similar to Mescaline or Salvia, but only in that it's impossible to describe articulately in words.
I guess my absolute favorite times of the week are the midday weekdays, say Tuesday around 2pm, you'll often find me at a cafe or diner, headphones on, sitting quietly reading and sipping on tea. The joy of these moments I cannot fully express.
I adore loving kind-hearted people; strange people, normal people, smart people, silly people, GGG people, poly people, non-poly people, people who love animals, people who love life ...
I find the most attractive people are those with an honest lust for life, a sentimentality, a willingness to be vulnerable appreciating beauty
