Online Me

Havi's post about talking to the Director was, as usual, amazing. And it also gave me the latest moment of hmm. I need to do some more thinking about it, but I am realizing that there's a Physical Me and an Online Me. And I'm going to work on listing the qualities of each, and think about ways I can bring them closer into alignment (or possibly alliance). Maybe like Jodi Foster in Nim's Island, but not quite so extreme. This bears more thinking and writing to become a full post, or even a full thought. But if I don't write it down, extensive research has shown that the white noise of everyday life will drown it out.

The symmetry, the surety

How long has it been since I bought the Dance of Shiva CD from Havi? Months and months at least. I have never stuck with an exercise program this long. And I don't even think of it as exercise most of the time, even though it really can be. But I think the reason I have kept with it, or one of them, is the numbers and the patterns. Not the patterns of behavior that it reveals, but the patterns within the movements. The mathematical beauty of it. The symmetry.

Maybe also because I really don't think of it as exercise most of the time. Hmm.

A new pattern: when something unpleasant or stressful is upcoming, I stay up entirely too late in some bass-ackward attempt at making it take longer to arrive.
