to explore the roots of economic terms like economy, mortgage, debt, credit, foreclosure, worth, value, etc.

another man believing with his programming you do not fit the way things work ~ men who should and will die soon or later, well…And. They will, you and I will too; good morning Monday August 22, 2022 on the ledger of souls awake at this time in our historical record, fossil record, this library of longing to not be separate and in trouble, needing to sell more, work more diligently, strategize for winter is coming, winter came and went two dozen times since 1998, a sweet beginning and middle of innocence, suspended in a beam of sunshine from the windows of my parents’ house

economy means “management of the home.”

conservation of energy — conservative approach to possibility, regulation of possibility ~ it seems to depend on writing: being an intellectual, being able to name a thing without acting on it: being able to feel excited without tipping over — a Beethoven symphony in the speed “Allegro Ma Non Troppo”: quick but without tripping. John Wooden: “be quick, but don’t rush.”

fervor + patience

“Politics is a strong and slow boring of hard boards. It takes both passion and perspective. Certainly all historical experience confirms the truth — that man would not have attained the possible unless time and again he had reached out for the impossible. But to do that a man must be a leader, and not only a leader but a hero as well, in a very sober sense of the word. And even those who are neither leaders nor heroes must arm themselves with that steadfastness of heart which can brave even the crumbling of all hopes. This is necessary right now, or else men will not be able to attain even that which is possible today.”
― Max Weber

funny how this thoughterfall (thought waterfall) is my version of daughter

sure it’s true but what are you gonna do about it? See this is the father’s voice: you are empowered, you CAN do something; ah, listen to the rooster crow—where did it come from? There are always many ways to ask a question, to inspect a corpse; a writer does all possibilities and walks away and has breakfast; he is indifferent in the profoundest sense, even to his own fate, yet, resigned and sentenced to the sentence and the career of vast, overflowing plumage of words that can’t and won’t land or be embraced, he keeps spinning another one, speaking up again, using his tired soul and platform online to keep circulating his breath, his realness; he shall be real or die
