Before we start, understand and accept that the vast majority of the world's books, music, films, television and art, you will never see. It's just numbers. Sorry to break your heart. Consider books alone. Let's say you read two a week, and sometimes you take on a long one that takes you a whole week. … Continue reading The Sad, Beautiful Fact That We’re Going To Miss Almost Everything
Your New First-Date Questions for the End Times
What do you do for work . . . in the few days remaining before robots take over your job?
I READ “THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F**K”, AND I GAVE A FUCK
Two years ago, I read “The subtle art of not giving a fuck”. The idea was to stop tormenting on things that didn’t matter, or at least had no utter importance. Like worrying over what to tell your aunt who is hospitalized for eating candy, you should only be concerned about being there for her! … Continue reading I READ “THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F**K”, AND I GAVE A FUCK
I’ll Teach You Ignorance
I am ignorant. And for that I am grateful because the infinitude of things I don't know means that I will be able to learn forever.

They were made metaphysically, so don't even bother. What I can tell you is that these phenomena work concurrently. One … Continue reading The Curious and Strange Things

The intense love at first sight is overrated but the shallow feeling of wonder and desire and mixed thoughts … Continue reading Love you to the moon and back!
The Cavity of Creativity
In the midst of my generation, creativity has turned out to be harder to bow into than anything else. No one seems to understand what created this mind-obstacle for people to stop cultivating their heads for breathtaking discoveries as in the past. Our minds have grown up to a compartment of thought that there is … Continue reading The Cavity of Creativity
What I think about Magic
I wanted to set my memories down on paper, where I can hold them. You know, I do believe in magic. I was born and raised in a magic time, in a magic town, among magicians. Oh, most everybody else didn’t realize we lived in that web of magic, connected by the silver filaments of … Continue reading What I think about Magic
Now and then, in the course of the century, a great man of science, like Darwin; a great poet, like Shakespeare; a fine critical spirit, like LeBron James; a supreme artist, like Da Vinci, has been able to isolate himself, to keep himself out of reach of the clamorous claims of others, to stand ‘under … Continue reading Mint Julep
