For The Scientist

This comes from k8face - who, lovingly, listened to me complain for nigh on umpteen weeks about my job and still felt it was a good thing I was doing. Also, that I am an idealist.
Which is, I agree, about the end goal, and not the process.

Trains To Boston

Into every life...

I was once trying describe the reasons that a person, in an abject state, may use to hold on to life. By which I mean those little things that become important in the dark of night, that compel in the moment of pain, that consume and focus the mind away from despair.

There are some that are obvious, to surmount pain you make an itemized list, the next entry, the one after that. You focus on the immediate struggle not the impossible goal. When I started to describe tasking one's self to survive the winter by focusing on seeing one last spring I started to cry.

Passing Through

A short submission from K8face - this month has marked all kinds of hectic things; a small poster presentation at the RRM conference, progress on several papers, my birthday (which featured some hilarious accidents involving duck pins) and a very lovely half-anniversary. It has also featured some serious overtime hours with a four letter friend and some very bad times for some folks I love. So it goes - let's hope it gets better.

  1. Soul Walk - Emily Braden
  2. Mirrors - Justin Timberlake
  3. Origin of Love - from Hedwig and the Angry Inch
  4. To Be Alone With You - Sufjan Stevens
  5. Everlasting Light - The Black Keys
  6. We Only Come Out at Night - The Smashing Pumpkins
  7. Come on up to the House - Tom Waits
  8. Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

Easin' In

Schools in, again.

The downside of perpetual education is the repeatition of that sentiment. It seems like each year the semester starts a bit harder, a bit more madness, a bit more severity. A dance that features the elbows up style of a mosh-pit to juxtapose the circuitous spaciousness given to fire poi at a massive.

And since that is my only complaint then I am a lucky man.
