James Gray i’m on the constant search for what I consider “perfect word combinations”. they don’t happen much but I know it when I see it. It’s the phrases that are connectors. I can almost feel the click in my head. but then how to describe the connections? eight years ago I described this to a friend who said “you need to write a dictionary” i’ve lost touch with that friend about six years ago but I did the dictionary over a long weekend, sat on it for a year, put it up on Amazon and Internet archive. that wasn’t it though. so I’ve been looking for patterns within myself. of course there’s the bootstrapping problem. I didn’t come from nothing but there is a “before” that will always be inaccessible to me I hope some of what I do resonates even a little. I think it does. I know there are many other people who are on their own quests. I hope my quest resonates with their quest even if they’re not identical. I think it’s a certain kind of “striving in earnest”

James Gray i’m on the constant search for what I consider “perfect word combinations”. they don’t happen much but I know it when I see it.

It’s the phrases that are connectors.

I can almost feel the click in my head.

but then how to describe the connections?

eight years ago I described this to a friend who said “you need to write a dictionary”

i’ve lost touch with that friend about six years ago but I did the dictionary over a long weekend, sat on it for a year, put it up on Amazon and Internet archive.

that wasn’t it though.

so I’ve been looking for patterns within myself.

of course there’s the bootstrapping problem.

I didn’t come from nothing but there is a “before” that will always be inaccessible to me

I hope some of what I do resonates even a little.

I think it does. I know there are many other people who are on their own quests.

I hope my quest resonates with their quest even if they’re not identical.

I think it’s a certain kind of “striving in earnest”
