Geek, a poet, an idealist, a philomath, humanist. I love nature, paradox, entelechy, and ataraxia. I love living and the uniquely human experience of distance. I revel in the verity of human nascency. And if you couldn't tell, I'm happily addicted to words.
An idea worth spreading
"In that first hardly noticed moment in which you wake,
coming back to this life from the other
more secret, moveable and frighteningly honest world
where everything began,
there is a small opening into the new day
which closes the moment you begin your plans.
What you can plan is too small for you to live.
What you can live wholeheartedly will make plans enough
for the vitality hidden in your sleep.
To be human is to become visible
while carrying what is hidden as a gift to others.
To remember the other world in this world
is to live in your true inheritance."
- David Whyte, excerpted from "What To Remember When Waking"
