Lying and writing

Denying one’s life

The best paces where stories come from is that dissonance, the disconnect from what you are experiencing and what you are telling yourself. Or disconnects of all kinds. Today, it’s the disconnect between what I doing, and what I believe I am doing.

To be specific: After discovering Vashit Bunyan’s 1970 recordI spent almost an hour on Saturday creating a new iTunes playlist to wrap around it. Called “barely audible but godly” I listened to it for hours while doing dishes, doodling, drawing, working on the strips. We have such privilged lives, –I– have such a priviliged life, and I LOVE TO NOT BELIEVE it.

–I– would never spend so much time frivilously. –I– would never let my thoughts wander from the world’s pains for that long.

These lies we tell ourselves are the good places to start.

For now, I’m going to take an undeserved nap.
