Welcome readers! The original aim of this blog was as follows: to share through a literary medium my thoughts on society, love, artistry and justice. Thus the blog is inevitably political (the personal is political: stir and repeat) and spans a gamut of writing media: the essay (or creative non-fiction genre), the poem, the article.
Yet, the blog has inevitably become the receptacle for my search for truth and happiness: i apply my life and interests and skills (and, alas, weaknesses) in pursuit of a single object: goodness. Things have been this way since i was a child. So I apologise if the contents of this blog seem overwhelmingly religious (buddhist), or silly, or confounding, or boring. The older, angstier posts carry much more literary stimulation, but still a writer, i must write what moves me and at the moment it is the struggle to awaken (myogaku).
a little author background: i’m the only writer for this personal blog; i am a buddhist and an activist and a writer, broadly. i identify as biracial of east asian and white heritage, and i also identify as a lesbian and as a person from a wealthy financial background, who has received a high degree of education.
