Day 174: Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

I’m dedicating this post to Sarah, the friend who invited me to start this blog last year. It has helped me in many ways, many unexpected ways.

I met Sarah a few weeks ago on her trip to visit a shaman in Philadelphia. We had lunch. In the hour or so we had remaining, we found the Liberty Bell. We waited in line with a bunch of people from Alabama and took pictures of the bell.

It was nice to meet Sarah in person finally after several years of online “hi” and “how are you.” I had the best egg sandwich I’ve ever had for lunch and we talked about the past, the present, and the future. I articulated some things for her in our conversation that I had not spoken aloud to anybody before. It took our conversation to foreground my thoughts and make them whole through my explanation. I told her I don’t have beliefs and I’m not sure why we insist on beliefs. I just have my imagination. That’s enough for me. It sustains me.

Thank you Sarah.
