“We have stopped reading, we have not the time. Our mind is solicited simultaneously from too many sides: it has to be spoken to quickly as it passes by. But there are things that cannot be said or understood in such haste, and these are the most important things for man. This accelerated movement, which makes coherent thought impossible, may alone be sufficient to weaken, and in the long run utterly to destroy, human reason.”

– Felicite de Lamennais (1782-1854)

Outside the haste of my accelerated life, this is a place for me to slow down and wander. It started with the idea that artists receive so much unwanted advice, and like anyone with an embarrassment of riches, I should give some back. But more and more, it has evolved into a space where I can think out loud with the help of the great thinkers and poets, and perhaps there is a song or two that echoes within someone else’s heart.

In the end, just like my favorite art; it is not for anything.


I try to post every week, barring writer’s block, cramps (in my fingers), some occasional fasting from technology, or any unforeseen obstacle. Therefore, I post about once a month.

      Yes! So seldom do we create for the sake of creation. For our own pleasure or passion or pain.
