[Rediscovering notes from 3-5-09]
As a commentator, it’s difficult to know where to begin some days, commenting on what’s going on around me.
I can always fall back on weird and wonderful things I see, or experiences I’m having and what they mean to me.
I really don’t want this to be a personal journal. For one thing, who cares? I mean, those who care are already in my life and know all this stuff. Besides, I don’t want to blab all over the Internet about most of what’s happening with me because it’s personal.
What the world looks like from my point of view. Totally personal and independent, never having been a card-carrying member of any movement, party, or union. Largely disdainful of all organizations (it seems like they too often become self-perpetuating monstrosities run by power-mad dictators), yet aware that we are all interdependent, I seek to find what my principles are.
I have a conversation partner and fellow intellectual, but I can see how being in a milieu of pundits and politicians would sharpen one’s wit even more. Or would it make you pull your punches, since you’d lose lunches?
