A Gentleman's Call
Today was an awful dreamy day and I have nothing to show for it but a trail of fanciful urls. When the weather is shitty and you're stuck in the house all day, who wouldn't want to escape to someplace more inviting?
"I am aware of the need for constant self-revision and growth, leaving behind the renunciations of yesterday and yet in continuity with all my yesterdays. For to cling to the past is to lose one's continuity with the past, since this means clinging to what is no longer there. My ideas are always changing, always moving around one center, and I am always seeing that center, and I am always seeing that center from somewhere else. Hence, I will always be accused of inconsistency. But I will no longer be there to hear the accusation."
- Thomas Merton
