self-gratifying deliberations on the essential nature of inconsequential truth
private musings pining for public acknowledgment

THANKS to all my awesome friends....esp. Tim and Jeremy....for the engagement party last week. I had a blast doing the cockroach with Michael, talking with everyone, and bashing the home pregnancy test out of the pinata and sleeping with its head.
"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."
