In Search of Lost Time

“Live in the moment” is a phrase I struggle with. The idea behind it seems to be that, if one’s consciousness could stop engaging in various forms of fretting and recalling involuntary memories, it could focus all of its faculties on the Now, which would be a purer, “truer” lived experience. It may be better to … Continue reading In Search of Lost Time

Poland, Belated

This is a post that was long overdue. For one, we visited in August of 2018, and I just never got around to organizing my photos and putting together a proper blog post.

Though archeological evidence suggests the site of the present city has been occupied by humans for millenia, legend has it that it was founded in the mid-5th century AD by  King Vakhtang Gorgasali. The city’s … Continue reading Tbilisi Streets
