Early Bird Ping Pong Thoughts

I'll never fail you at this game. It's 12:55AM and I can't go back to sleep. Of all the thoughts that start up, this is the one that wins. I have to get up early for work tomorrow. Today. No. It's this that takes over my moonlit sleep time. This is my favorite game to play. What can I say? What's that one thing in your life that you keep coming back to? For me, it's this - the romance of it, the magic of it, the possibility of it, the it's-in-my-wildest-dreams of it. It's that one thing that's just a part of who and what I am. I'm more than married to it. Like a mirror that never fails to show me my reflection, no matter what does or does not go on, this is that thing that just can't be put down, dropped, put aside. It goes where I go, like a living shadow. Because in the grandest sense, it is what I am. And I know, I'm never alone in my thoughts of this.

Life of a scholar

There's something about listening to classical music while writing on the nature of consciousness that transports me into feeling like I'm in some giant cathedral of a library, sitting on an elevated platfrom by a giant desk with volumes of books tossed around in every direction. I'm actually just at a desk in front of a computer...but the feeling is still extraordinary.
