To teach is to learn… - Confused
I am hyper-aware of two things:
- My relative Internet isolation
- My relative real world isolation. My life partner is currently at work… and I haven’t gone to get my daily beverage at the local coffee shop yet. I have friends, okay. Physical, living friends….
One of my first tumblr posts. That reminds me… I need to find that copy of Strunk and White.
If our shallow, self-critical culture sometimes seems to lack a sense of the numinous or spiritual it’s only the same way a fish lacks a sense of the ocean. Because the numinous is everywhere, we need to be reminded of it. We live among wonders.
Grant Morrison (writer of comics)
whoa. Numinous. We need to be reminded of numinous. We live among numinous. It’s everywhere. EVERYWHERE!

Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.
