Presently seeing someone. Open but I don't know for how long.
Relationship status is probably best described as "it's complicated".
Likely not looking for anything serious. Just meeting people and seeing how and where things go.
The world is glorious in both its wonder and absurdity. As much as our contemporary neo-Enlightenment philosophies tend to vilify the human wrought world as "unnatural" and "unhealthy". Nature certainly doesn't have a monopoly on the sublime any more than we have one on the ridiculous.
I'm sure there is nothing like a God, but I'm also equally sure it has a stupendous sense of humor.
The shiny thing your attention is drawn to is, inevitably, quite boring. What lies in the periphery and beyond is less so, but will always disappoint with its insistence on the importance of what lies at the center. It is this tension that gives rise to all meaning, between the emptiness of the subject and the subjugation of any context to that emptiness.
The importance of the above cannot be overstated. Yes, philosophy can be construed as intellectual masturbation, but the delineation between masturbation and lovemaking is nearly nonexistent when two minds of the right mettle meet. It is through masturbation that we arrive at an understanding of what is possible between two wanton notions; it is through philosophy that we arrive at an understanding of what questions we can actually ask.
I just want to know people who are always asking. I want people who are never content with their little ledge, convinced it is the wide wondrous world. I want people who are content that there really is no bottom, no end point, just more questions.
Working on catching up in my New Yorkers.
Working on being able to write again.
Working on getting back into shape.
Working for a tiny tech/software company. Not making a huge amount, but loving my job.
Plunging into Swift after creating an app in Objective-C.
Learning over and over the value of being able to throw away something I created and once thought was brilliant and perfect.
In that light I need the outside to be more than a place between insides.
I need my ontic horizon to heave and thrash occasionally.
Friends who love enough to be uncivil.
Rewarding experiences that can be brutal and challenging at the time, and lead to something far greater than fun.
I don't really waste my time counting things that don't need to be counted.
How strange it is that the right person can make being seem necessary and inevitable. Whether for five minutes or five years.
The importance of the authentic act.
How the incidental and the inevitable are really the same thing seen from different sides of the mirror.
Maybe home reading. Maybe home watching Netflix. Maybe out with friends or someone who is more than a friend. Maybe working on coding. Maybe leaving for a weekend trip.
You understand the importance of being objectified in the right way at the right time.
You don't think being a cynic or an optimist does justice to what humans are capable of, both evil and good.
