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”
