Had to say good bye to a very good friend of mine yesterday before he moved across the country. We reminded each other that this was a see you later and not a good bye. I’m trying to plan a trip to Cali in December to see him for a little while.
He said some really profound things about the nature of forgiveness, and we talked about the idea how Kierkegaard says that the reason we find things beautiful is because we regard them with the pain of knowledge that nothing is permanent I think, or rather our conception of beauty is wrapped in pain? But in essence he helped me think through some things differently and I’m feeling /loads/ better today than I have in a long time. Definitely going to go get one of Kierkegaards books and read them because I’m intrigued by his ideas.
Becoming more of a morning person as of late too. Perhaps Edwin felt bad about waking me up early this past week or so because he snuggled with me this morning and didn’t meow until I was in the kitchen! What a good kitty :)
Sitting in bed enjoying the morning with a cup of tea before I have to leave on my daily bike adventure to work.
