Hello Me

In a little under 3 hours, I'll be headed to the airport and bugging out for a week to a place where there is no internet, and my handphone will not work.

Cut off from the outside world, and all forms of communication, it's just me, myself and I. This should get pretty interesting, and I am looking forward to reaquint myself with the man in the mirror, and behind the eyelids.

Here's my thought of the day. When you're off from the things like your work, your interests, your significant other, the people around you, your culture and your worldly possessions, do you still know yourself?

At night, when the eyes close, and you're alone with yourself without distraction and form, who do you see? And more importantly, how do you feel about that person?

This promises to be a very interesting week.

I think the most difficult person to know... is ourselves.
Don't you think so?

An ex once told me, I'm complicated. And I agree. I think people are complicated in their own ways and on their own terms.

But behind all the complication, is it still possible to know oneself? Maybe.

But to fully understand? Tough.

Knowing self is a reiterative function.

x = x + 1

Lani: You see yourself in the mirror every day. Now if it's not a lack of interaction, what is keeping us from knowing ourselves?

Skye: does that make you a little more tolerant of your other half? Hard to blame them for not understanding you, when you don't understand yourself aye?

Chaosm: Hopefully the function is positive. Is it?
