A Tale for the Time Being

I had to abandon this blog for a long time. Grad school was getting the best of me, and I had neither time nor energy for any fun side projects….but now I’m back, and so is this blog :) Along with a slight redesign, I’ve gone with a different site name: http://www.forthetimebeing.me. Part of it is me being dumb and not renewing my old domain, thestylesnap.com, in time. Now thestylesnap is floating out there, bought out by some random company that wants to ransom it back to me. But I have a better idea. This one is inspired by one of my favorite books of all time, A Tale for the Time Being by the inimitable Ruth Ozeki.

Let me give you a taste.

A time being is someone who lives in time, and that means you, and me, and every one of us who is, or was, or ever will be. As for me, right now I am sitting in a French maid cafe in Akiba Electricity Town, listening to a sad chanson that is playing sometime in your past, which is also my present, writing this and wondering about you, somewhere in my future. And if you’re reading this, then maybe by now you’re wondering about me too.

I am a time being. As are you, reading this in your present and my past. I’m grateful that we’re here together, connected by two glowing screens, for the time being.
