The beauty of the world has two edges,
one of laughter, one of anguish,
cutting the heart asunder.

Beauty in Moonlight    August, 2002

Going waaayyyy off on a tangent with this one:
What is Masculinity?  An adventure in music

 

 

 

And a bit of history, pre-dating the creation of this web by a year and three months.

On September 11, 2001, driving home from work, without commitments for the evening, I was able to let the emotions of the day run their course.  After seeing some skid marks I'd driven past several times on the Pat Bay Highway, I stopped and wrote in my journal at the side of the road.  I soon realized that I was writing a letter - one that was important to me.  

To this day I squirm at the thought of sending it.  I think I made about 35 people quite uncomfortable.  I can recall my discomfort at any moment to this day.  At the time, I knew that it was one of those partially-crazy things to do, yet I also knew after writing it, that if I didn't follow through and send it that I would leave myself with some internal, structural damage.

I couldn't send it to to everyone I wanted to at the time.  But now, if you're reading this and weren't on my email list back then, please include yourself, and be made uncomfortable.

So here's the email, sent at 1:43AM, September 12, 2001.   The Subject was, "Sorry, can't name this one right now."
