See and Summate

Social Media: Twitter is high maintenance. Facebook really isn't that private, and is addictive enough to trade the internet for your life. Old school blogs run at just my pace.

36th Amendment

Say you're the only person at a 20-stool horseshoe-style bar. Uno. Solo. Dolo. Another guy walks towards the bar, skips the first 18 stools and sits down next to you. It's like watching a man walk past eight empty urinals to stand next to the guy at number 10. There's an unwritten rule for that somewhere. Maybe the guy thought I owed him money.

Still Stands

Things I believed when I wrote these posts that still stand now:

Stuff is low on my list of priorities. So is other people's business.

Context matters.
Comfy bars are great for reading.

Subtleties are telling, manipulative, admirable, and seductive all at the same time.

Unplanned exposure to the unfamiliar gives me odd comfort.

I Don't Use Social Networks

I could list all the reasons. But bottom line, just e-mail me. Or if you have my phone number call. This message is really for those that Google me and don't have my personal info, but try to reach out. if you want to reach me.

I tend to close my Facebook page for months at a time, so it's not worth trying to find me there. My LinkedIn account is up, but I don't use it at all. Will shut it down soon enough. I'm hoping that, eventually, a random Google search will lead you here.

Sometimes, Honest Is Easier

This culture fosters such a temptation to speak in absolutes and dualities, right now, about things we in no way can be certain about. I get the need for presentation. Really do. On the flip side, you have to respect your audience enough to know that they have enough common sense (and access to Google) to tell the difference.

Lira Sings

Lira, home grown. At National Geographic.

Random Reflections

Ehhh.... Just because.

Reading: The bookstore has become a day center for suburbanites who live in cars. This recession is still very real. 

Music: Tried out Giant Steps. It's my introduction to what all these musicians call "real" jazz. Coltrane's music feels different than I expected. It's like wearing a tailored suit, casually, just because you want to, for the very first time; my new blue jeans. I expected the experience to feel awkward and pretentious. I expected to feel like I was trying too hard to look grown up. Instead, it just feels comfortable. Like I've matured enough to be ready. I don't think I would have appreciated this as a teenager.

Because I Need to

Re-realizing the need to write for no reason.
