my body, a journal


enso, the zen circle. representing the endless circle of birth, death and rebirth.  
enso, the imperfect brush-stroke circle. representing unending unity. 

my feelings toward the circle are best expressed by the beautiful lyrics of fleet foxes, who word the sentiment better than i ever could:

"i was raised up believing 
i was somehow unique 
like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, 
unique in each way you can see 

and now after some thinking, 
i'd say i'd rather be 
a functioning cog in some great machinery 
serving something beyond me"

*song here.
