No Other Motives

I don’t have any motives that involve you. Maybe just one, actually. Is that first sentence grammatically correct? Please, someone, tell me. Is it selfish or selfless to have motives that only involve yourself? I don’t really know. I don’t think about it for long enough to care. I used to think that to be […]

The Three Types of Writing

Nothing makes me qualified to write about this. Which is exactly why I am writing about it. I see there as being three types of writing. Knowledge. Heart. Imagination.

Don’t Take My Advice

How do you know if someone is manipulating you? I am not sure I know. I am too lazy to play psychological games. I gave up. I just stare at people for long enough to make judgement call. That’s my only tactic. The simplest way for me to navigate social politics. Perhaps I am too paranoid. […]

Too Much

He had one trolley. The trolley was wide enough to stack one crate on top of another. His boss was shouting at him “More! More!” I think his boss was Greek. Maybe this is symbolic. So he stacked two crates side by side on the width of a platform designed for only one crate. Then he […]
