how to be

A project in the unmaking and remaking of a Self.

As I gather materials from my intellectual past and my creative writing, running, and losing my central vision present, I’m archiving them here. As of right now (spring 2020, the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic), I’m using this page as a place for loosely organizing and working through my ideas. In some future time, I hope to make this more organized and succinct and coherent as a series of stories/theories/ideas about how to be.

a quick update, may 2020: Over 2 months into this pandemic, I am struck by how many of these ways of being are helping me to endure this strange, uncertain time.
