Genius without signs.

It is easier to imagine that you lack the discipline to write than to accept that you have nothing to say.

A gift.

 The generosity of the giver is acknowledged by the hesitancy of the receiver. An outright refusal, though, indicates a disinclination to engage in future exchanges.

Suffered gladly.

Fools know better and live worse.

Woodstock 1969.

Jimi Hendrix’s “The Star Spangled Banner” is not protest, interpretation, or sign. It simply sounds-forth the nation with the utmost clarity.

Nietzsche played the piano.

The piano, like the pen, is an instrument of the architectonic mind.

Conditions of condescension.

Who derides those who must invent their own identities? Only those who are just stupid enough to take their own identities for granted.

Dialogue with Pakistani friend.

A: Sometimes I can’t believe you speak English. B: Sometimes I have the same reaction looking in the mirror. 

Most of what I say is meaningless.

I say it so that the absurdity of it may strike you all. 

Preparations.

If you are ready to dissent, you have already withdrawn. If you have already withdrawn, you are ready to engage.

Differences appear at close range.

One who keeps their distance sees others as pretty much all the same.
