"pathos /ˈpāˌTHäs/, n. 1. The quality or character of those emotions, traits, or experiences which are personal, and therefore restricted and evanescent; transitory and idiosyncratic dispositions or feelings as distinguished from those which are universal and deep-seated in character; — opposed toethos.

It continued. 2. That quality or property of anything which touches the feelings or excites emotions and passions, esp., that which awakens tender emotions, such as pity, sorrow, and the like; contagious warmth of feeling, action, or expression; pathetic quality; as, the pathos of a picture, of a poem, or of a cry."

Huh. Good dictionary.

I Went Paleo and Now I Hate Everything

Please put aside whatever religious sentiments you have about the Paleo Diet, and read this because it is simply the funniest thing I've read in months.

Recently, I went pseudo Paleo.

I say pseudo, because, like most things in my life, I’ve jumped in headfirst without putting any thought or research into it (this is also how I ended up taking a workout class called “Insanity.” Afterwards, I was drooling and delirious. So I guess it delivered).

It just happens to be by Geraldine, the wife of +Rand Fishkin, and I don't even know why I mentioned that because she'd be just as good a writer if she were actually sleeping with "the guy from the farmers market" instead of Rand (read the piece!).

‘Even stone changes. Nothing can stand still-'

‘Yet we would. Wouldn't we? Oh, we talk of progress, but what we really desire is the perpetuation of the present. With its seemingly endless excesses, its ravenous appetites. Ever the same rules, ever the same game.'

Steven Erikson, Midnight Tides

Erikson always has a lot to say about the world, but this book flows over with careful rumination. The Letharii are more similar to modern Americans than any other fantasy people I've ever encountered, and they are handled tenderly, but not without clarity of vision.

"Although I'd like to join the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as I may, it doesn't last

And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one."

I love this song, and I really wish these guys would release some more stuff, though I find that pretty unlikely at this point...

The Witcher says “Lesser, greater, middling…makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary. The definition’s blurred. If I’m to choose between one evil and another, I’d rather not choose at all.”

"I would like to repeat that we are not trying to convince you of anything - that must be clearly understood. We are not trying to persuade you to accept a particular point of view. We are not trying to impress you about anything; nor are we doing any propaganda. We are not talking about personalities, or who is right and who is wrong, but rather trying to think out, to observe, together, what the world is and what we are, what we have made of the world and what we have made of ourselves. We are trying together to examine both the inward and the outward man.

"To observe clearly one must be free to look - obviously. If one clings to one's particular experiences, judgements and prejudices, then it is not possible to think clearly. The world crisis which is right in front of us demands, urges, that we think together so that we can solve the human problem together, not according to any particular person, philosopher, or particular guru. We are trying to observe together. It is important to bear in mind all the time that the speaker is merely pointing out something which we are examining together. It is not something one-sided but rather that we are co-operating in examining, in taking a journey together and so acting together."

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

"People moving all the time 
Inside a perfectly straight line 
Don't you wanna curve away? 
When it's such… 
It's such a perfect day 
It's such a perfect day"

"I watch the patchwork farms
slow fade into the oceans arms.
From here you can't see me stare,
the stale taste of recycled air."

But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them, too. That is rare, and pure, and perfect.
