— i mean, in public!
The process of putting this website together has been a huge challenge in many ways.
My travels, which are my main source of inspiration for it, used to be very private up until little over a year ago. I would barely share it even with my parents and dearest friends. The last method of documenting them i’d been experimenting with before Not Mad Yet — and really enjoying! — was to take a limited number of pictures with a film camera, develop them upon my return, and then write on their backs over a cup of coffee.
Now add to that hermetic privacy the academic standard under which i’ve been trained as a mathematician, and you get someone who might forever dread the mere prospect of publicly sharing any thought that hasn’t been thoroughly examined, researched and developed.
It gets easier. The more i write, the closer i seem to get to how i used to feel when the only people i would share my thoughts with was my selves.
What is your life project? Are you working on it? What’s the underlying process? Writing here is to be understood metaphorically. If you know what you have to do, create the space for it, and share the process — and if you don’t, then create the space to find out — and share the process!
