"True loneliness occurs not when there are no others around me, but when I am deprived even of my shadow."

--Zizek, Less Than Nothing: Hegel and the Shadow of Dialectical Materialism (771)

Shadows figure importantly in many of my texts and especially so in Appearances, the book I need to get back to work on.


I'm listening to Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa. And  I'm tired.  I did a bunch of yard and house work today--raking, bagging, trips to the City compost site, dishes, sweeping and laundry.  I'm thinking about what to make for dinner--stir fry maybe.


There are
no others

around me.

Except shadows
and voices.


There's too many I's in the world.  Not enough us.


 is ultimately
 about parsing noise.
