GENESIS IS A SIREN THAT TAKES ONE FROM THE SHORE

I feel like I have a lot of ideas in my head and it’s like I’m giving in to excellence (I hope.) I have always had this concept that I just need to give in to excellence, that it’s something one dives into full force. It’s like being carried away in a current, a strong stream. One can give in to excellence and lose sight of the shore, because when one gives into excellence one loses track of quotidian worries. One becomes fully involved with what one is doing. That’s the concept I have of it, at least. What’s kept me from achieving deeply in any one area in my life is that I have too many goals. Right now I’m focusing on two things: running and website design. I’m giving in to website design. I’m giving in to running. It is unfortunately to the detriment of cooking, creating art, watching movies, and spending more quality time with Smith, but I have this idea that I’ll achieve deeply in one area (web design) and then pull back and achieve deeply in another area (like cooking or being with Smith.) Another thing I desire to give into is writing but I want to postpone that for a while. I have this idea that geniuses are not people who are into ‘all things in moderation.’

    All things in moderation including moderation.

    For me it is good to take those I love the most and equally love me for the most, with me on each tangent. For it is with them beside me I start to feel a balance.

    Smith is my foundation, the love of my life, the companion that I’ve always looked for.
