not very good on starting points. i can feel the urge and the desire to engage, but it’s really already happening by then innit? when did it begin?
maybe the lesson is to just forgo the beginnings, and just jump right in. find yourself in mid stride, halfway through the first third of a conversation’s worth of confidence, knee-deep in it.
just be there, like a projection of the mind already in the real world. it’s not enough to be in the moment, but you have to be in your moment. someone else’s moment will only give you a skewed perspective.
