Narcissus and The Repairman

“the narcissist: he treats objects as props for his fragile ego and has an uncertain grasp of them as having a reality of their own. The clearest contrast to the narcissist that I can think of is the repairman, who must subordinate himself to the broken washing machine, listen to it with patience, notice its … Continue reading Narcissus and The Repairman

I was walking on the beach with my girlfriend recently and we serendipitously came across a guy doing tarot card readings.

What is holding one’s breath? … Continue reading Siddhartha
