I use this space the way Dumbledore uses his Pensieve… “One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one’s mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one’s leisure. It becomes easier to spot patterns and links, you understand, when they are in this form.” – Albus Dumbledore to Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Sometimes, however, my thoughts are unruly and too raw to allow others to swim in them.
Lately, I have arrived at a contradiction, and “to arrive at a contradiction is to confess an error in one’s thinking; to maintain a contradiction is to abdicate one’s mind and to evict oneself from the realm of reality” –Galt’s Speech, For the New Intellectual
I don’t know when the unrest began, nor from whence it came, only that it did and it is in full burn. It feels good. Good to be thinking, hard – about life, faith, reason, God, existence. But this is not a season of expression, but one of reflection.
So in my Pensieve that is Twirling Girl, I leave this short entry to remind me. When the time comes to view the whole of it, I will spot the patterns and links, and it will make sense, and I will bring expression to it. And if you want, you can read it.
