To draw the sky

How do we know what we don't know? How do we know what we can't see? What is that space between leaves, the shape of shadows, the space in between in between? How between sounds like the Tagalog word "bituin" or star. And like the stars, the space in between is vast and unknowing, yet shines in the night sky to let us know it is there.

Bringing it back online

I was offline for quite some time. The offline real life has a way of doing that. Most of my day to day online interaction happens on facebook nowadays. But things have happened that have made me consider going back to blogging.

I'm on a new journey.

It's a bit of a lonely journey in that it's time to put the pieces together. Hopefully an incredible journey of uncovery, exploration, imagination, and if all goes well, in the end mastery, though there's no guarantee.

Previously, I blogged about random anything. But I think now, I will focus this writing around the journey.

I recently posted to my cousin's blog where he was discussing media and communication. I said, "blogging is just about as close to being archaic on the internet as email." Blogging has become "old-school".

But there's a benefit to "old school" and in this case there is the luxury of longer sentences, stream of consciousness that go beyond 140 characters, which I believe leads to longer meditations on ideas versus sound bytes and attention deficit quality of other communications. And that's what I need. I need to meditate.
