“Your life began with a kind of singularity. A personal Big Bang. Without warning, you emerged from unconsciousness into a sea of light, color, smell, faces, feelings, and other completely unexpected phenomena, and there was nothing to do but attempt to navigate it. It was the ultimate “cold open” – no context, no explanation, just things happening.“

@smays As I once had on my bio: "I was born in a time and place not of my choosing. Since then I've tried to make the best of it."

@smays I really like the paragraph that starts:

"Because you depend so much on the map, it’s easy to forget that it’s just a map, which you assembled yourself with mostly second-hand material. No matter how good your map is, it’s not the territory."
