Day 194

i eat most meals by the long window
under watch of the mountains.
the awkward staring between the two of us
has subsided. it's safe to say
we're now just mutually curious neighbors.

in this transition of all this, there's a keen, sometimes misunderstood, philosophy being twisted and strengthened.

you have to learn the rules in order to know how to best break them.

music is a thriving platform for this and i think that's why i like bob dylan and the beatles the best.

formal education is there to inform and provide knowledge in a rush of headaches and meeting requirements, but if you're taught to learn, you're just as better off anywhere else. that's another reason i like this place. a couple others in our community share this same perspective on learning, so we're always collecting and trading books or going to coffee shops in the afternoon to chill or read or discuss.

we're heading to banff tonight to do music for the weekend sfc retreat. should be good.
