The best I can do is preserve moments. No point hanging onto whole spheres of experience. I still have a problem with the 'live in the moment' philosophy but I have decided to have a good time nevertheless. Or I think.

Was a beautiful day yesterday. Carted a pillow and a rug to the lawns next to the library and read in the sun, soaking in the wind. Was far more productive than I have been all month. I am reading a ton of human rights theory all within the context of general priniciples of inapplicability and utopianism. Or 'necessary utopia' as Rawls labels it. I think I should be able to have a valid viewpoint in a month or so. Right now the groundwork is keeping me busy.

Such a hedonistic life, the luxury of contemplation without the necessity of action...

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right
