The Body

“The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project.”
Simone de Beauvoir

PS: My “situation” has a penchant for grasping more and more of the world in different and divergent sporting circumstances: cycling, skating, skiing, etc. Sketching over one’s limits melts the stresses of fitting an imperfect representation of perfect living.

Loneliness of stars

Humans cannot comprehend the loneliness of stars. We may, however, experience and picture the all-encompassing darkness that removes the barrier to the shimmering hidden beauty and thoughts of wonder.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
