Throwing in the Towel
You know...I've been reading a good bit lately. I just finished the last of the Rabbit series by Updike and that shitty Lawrence Lessig book about copyright or whatever the fuck. Through these books, other people's blogs, my own job, my dissipating social life, my excessive need to exaggerate to gain attention, and my inability to hold a conversation, I have decided once and for all to accept anything that comes to me.
It doesn't mean I can't pick the towel back up. Well I guess you can't recast a stone, but I like to feel as though I reserve the right to jump back in the ring when the time is right. But for right now my only artistic outlet will be this blog and the Art of Knowledge blog that will be started back up on Monday.
This is what I'm making a concerted effort to officially be through with:
Drinking in lack of celebration
Smoking in lack of drinking
Lying in lack of fucking
Fucking in lack of love
Loving in lack of sincerity
Dawdling in lack of working
Dreaming in lack of focus
Judging in lack of knowledge
Insight in lack of foresight
That's a good start right now. I don't really feel earthy enough to do anything grassroots or cool. I really do believe the only way for me to win is to be serious.
