PROJECTS

I like science: biology, philosophy, quantum mechanics, stuff like that. I‘m not so good socially. I like sex, but people are an acquired taste. I’m aging and think of mortality, of loss. Concepts interest me. Imagery interests me. Activities of falling involve me. I like doing. I like to do all, all at once. It’s unconscious and confusing. I make mistakes.

I panic. There’s a fair amount of pain, physical and otherwise, and bliss...
