My site serves as a living commonplace book. A collection of lessons, resources, and lists; ideas that have benefited myself and may benefit others as well.

Above all this site serves as my attempt to bring order to the chaos. Mindless and directionless improvement, though constructive, has no aim. Perhaps this site will serve as a metric.

“The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot, indeed must not, wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, rationalized avarice, and sanctified misunderstanding. ‘Live,’ Nietzsche says, ‘as though the day were here.’ It is not society that is to guide and save the creative hero, but precisely the reverse. And so, every one of us shares the supreme ordeal––carries the cross of the redeemer––not in the bright moments of his tribe’s great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair.”

~Joseph Campbell
