My apologies for not having written in the past week or so. I have been occupied writing and doing some other things that are not so directly linked to what I imagine this blog to be about. I have also written a couple of things for the blog, but they feel even more malformed and incomplete than my typical offerings.

I have been working to understand my use of the word 'delusional' and what that entails and have written about that. This involves getting into the nature of mental models, point of view, and 'mapping,' as such. Hopefully I can get something about that before too long, but I see it is sort of a recurring theme.

I would also love to hear where people's own inquiries are taking them and if anything comes up that anyone would like to write or talk about together in this format.


  1. My musings are probably quite pedestrian compared to yours....but I have been really enjoying David Whyte's book "the Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America." Although I am only on chapter four, the commentary on Beawulf is so meaningful. He speaks of wrestling with our own monsters in the deep water as a necessity for maturity. Not only the monsters, but the monster's mother too. Two quotes speak to me about my current journey (it IS all about me) "...it is injurious to the soul to remove portions of our life from exploration" and "...we will always be hunted by what we have most denied in ourselves."

  2. Ah, Roger, ...I am currently wrestling with the nature of fatigue. Am I creating it by my thinking? Sometimes I do want to just give up. Maybe I just need to rest.
