2024.03.31 Milestone birthday! Fifty seems like an absurd age to be. Over the past few months, I wrote down a lot of ideas I'd most like to share with people, and then I made each into a panel for a comic book. Eventually the things coalesced into 4 categories: personal history, big philosophical idea, advice I'd offer, and then quotes or lyrics I find really meaningful or useful. So please read it and let me know what you think! And feel free to share. It's a personal work but not that private.

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.

there is no moral. the wolf eats you one day and until it does, the forest is beautiful

Evil is boring. Right? I kinda believe in the banality and mundaneness of evil. Evil is just selfish impulses, which at the end of the day are really easy to understand. It's easy to understand why people do bad things. It's like "yeah, ok, you're selfish and scared and cruel, I get it". Being good is complex and beautiful and hard.
