I have a tendency —

a tendency to want to learn things so I feel smarter for doing them.

Rarely do I find pure enjoyment or a reason to get engrossed…

I’m still not done with Beyond Good And Evil which I purchased three years ago.

God, Nietzsche would roll in his grave… or perhaps lecture me…

or perhaps babble at me incoherently… or perhaps do nothing at all.

But perhaps with Joan I can find a love for creative nonfiction again.

Green tea never tasted so good.

I hope to learn, but I intend to enjoy.
