    I cast a shadow

    Time has rubbed away some of my prickliness about goodness. I can accept goodness as shorthand for trying to live free. Not free of my shadow, though. The only way to be free of it would be to be a formless and two-dimensional body that casts no shadow, that has no purchase in the world.

    Find the eyes to see

    I have a growing sense of unease about surrendering my time and attention to highly-manufactured representations of reality – like movies and anything digital.
