It read mostly philosophic, with strong undercurrents of honesty. And, as usual, super well-written.
In fact, to me it was the epitome of compelling blog post – author about author, fourth wall be damned, etc.
I mean, of course that too can become tiring when incessant. But to me that sort of thing from time to time connotes significant overall author cred.
Bonus points: “Life is a series of immediate and inescapable consequences” is a wonderful take on the relentlessness of time.
Oh my... am I staring at the future of most of my screen time?

Comparison with theoretically perfect individuals – if not with delusions of a self sans much conveniently forgotten about it.
