Re-Writing / Draft
Rewriting has never been an important part of my repertoire. Recently, I have been contemplating the importance and the pure genius of its form. I always denied its existence, or at least not cared enough to pay attention. Nevertheless, within few-years it has become my most powerful tool in writing. Most of the times when I write I usually upload my writing to this blog, but I figured the best way to do go about it, is to upload my writings and then go back and re-write it when I have more time.
My main point is to write; it is my utmost therapeutic approach that I have come across. Thus, I should be writing and not caring much about editing, or writing, as the point is to put it all down. I will be coming back to this write-up again and hoping to improve its flow. For now, I will leave it as is.
Triple #homicide along the barricades of seeing #darkness #creep within, but so is the wonderful mastery which one can read between the sheets of one’s spleen. The beam progressed to exist with a #baby #crying, begging for milk with tears of despair, but you continued partying it-up within your soul that continues to grin. Then you looked the other way, away from your baby and into the direction of the “#love of your life.” Perhaps, #delusions have become common, but so do paranoia your child continues to develop throughout his/her adult life, and then there is also the heartaches which never go away. Is my “#mommy,” going to come back for me, as I’m used to getting dropped at her “friends house,?” and she usually just leaves me here for a few days, begging me to behave, and telling me she will come back for me. Is this all a dream? The funny thing is…Your child, my child, our #child, of this #society, does not know better, as all this is a dream, or is it?
Friends come and go, and the un-friending becomes constant. It bothers one individual; an individual who changes faces to adapt to his surroundings.Then he/she chooses to shake his/her head in total dismay at the sheer presence of delusions. Facebook has become a wonderful outpost of attention, seeking, under-developed propaganda of 21st Century. I take pride in seeing something as evolutionary, and in progressing to teach individuals without limits. The conspiring under-developed selves, can express to their hearts content. It has become a network of spiders, creeping into the dreams of many civilians, as a tool to dis-engage from the reality of themselves. I’m confident to admit, that these spiders weaved an array of webs into my brain, but it has become true insight, which in return, dwindled to turn, into something with a lot more questions, then answers. On one hand, these feelings need and desire to be released. On the other hand, writing for myself to see the “light,” could be a determining factor to understand. This is a reflection of my soul, but perhaps all this is simply pointless gibber jabber of confusion. This is only the beginning of something, which can be described as something. My brain just farted, that felt good. I will end here.
Dr. Eliot’s Five Foot Shelf (The Harvard Classics)
I am beginning what some will call a difficult, yet rewarding goal. In the next year or so, I will be reading and writing on the well known “Dr.Eliot’s Five Foot Shelf,” known as The Harvard Classics. My goal is to finish 51 volumes in the next year.
I hope to use this Blog as my Journal, which will enable me to engage with my thoughts, ideas, confusions, logic, and analytical triumph in understanding these classics.
Once I complete 51 volumes of “The Harvard Classics,” I intend to dive into the Great Books also known as the “Great Books of the Western World.” I know that there are many other important works of the Eastern Canon and other cultural importance’s out there, which I intend to read, but I have to begin somewhere.
I will write up a more in-depth summary of Dr.Eliot’s “The Harvard Classics,” and the Mortimer Adler’s “The Great Books of the Western World,” as I proceed to read,review,annotate and chew on these classics.
I will proceed to write about each book,page and paragraph as I see fit.
If you’d like more information, or simply looking to chat about these historical classics, please do not hesitate to contact me at LeonBasin@gmail.com
This is a beginning of self-education and self-improvement and I hope you will join me.
Giving Up and Continuing
Sometimes when you feel like giving up, it is best to take a second and realize that it could be a lot worse. Inner understanding is required, but that desire has to come from within. I sometimes feel that it’s easier to give up, but then I start contemplating about reality, which gives me a purpose. Even at this moment, as I’m writing, it feels a bit forced, but I think if I want to be a decent writer, I must adhere to consistency. It is funny, when I push my writing, it seems like a young immature person wrote it, but perhaps that is because English is not my primary language. With that being said, I suppose it is important to coherently focus on the most important aspect of this post.
I am writing this for myself, but if others are interested in reading my write-ups, they are more than welcome to. I’m going to try and post something at least once a week, but I think if all goes well and I feel inspiration, perhaps I can post something more consistently. I have not written anything in more than two years. It feels amazing to be able to express myself through the written word. I am going to focus on this blog as generator of ideas, thoughts, opinions, philosophies and other weird and out there thought patterns. I welcome comments and discussions. I also welcome criticism and total outright outspoken hatred; it seems to help me somehow. This post is off the dome, but it feels good just to release.
Anyways, I welcome everyone to join me on this journey. I have a dozen of topics and ideas I am thinking of writing about, but perhaps I will start with the most simplistic and move into ones that are more complicated.
