summary

This has been a revelatory year for me. I came into contact with the kindest humans, and was touched by their humanity; their ability to recognize another human being for-itself and not as a means to an end. At the same time, the parasitic nature of some people was revealed to me. And this parasitism resulted from their narcissism, I believe, their inability to look beyond the mirror, to realize their reflection is mediated through an object.
It's also been difficult with my grandmother's passing, whom I loved deeply and who was a truly kind, spiritual, patient, and oft-forgiving person.

Overall, I think something has been unconcealed, but as Heidegger argues in "The Origin of a Work of Art) (1936, published 1950), a moment of unconcealment depends on the concealment of something else.

Now, I'm drowning myself in books, as I have no choice. My involvement in the blog world will begin to dwindle. But, again, I'm grateful to those that have been reading and commenting on my blog, and it has been a delight to read and comment on yours.

A special thanks to Ovais (I was touched by your award), Izdiher (faithful commentator and promoter of my blog), normal.is.overrated (always writes encouraging and supportive comments), and Aman (for her concerns).

  3. Thank you, Ovais! You're very sweet. (:

    Thanks! It always difficult losing a loved one, the only consolation is that she loved a good life, had no enemies, and was loved by many.

    As for the blog, I'm going to try to post as much as possible,perhaps before heading to bed, just time up some thoughts. However, I will not have the same amount of time to get involved comment and post as often.
    I have a hell of a month coming up, so I hope to get out of it alive. (:
