i couldn’t think of one

Posted by anya on May 3rd, 2008 filed in Uncategorized

Daniel told me tonight that happiness is synthesized. That actually, it’s a rather autonomous process that can happen in any circumstance. Something about prisons. But… why does my happiness crumble into a pool of awkward sadness here? Why is it that I feel trapped in this space, these kilometers, these millennium and expo lines? What is the value of happiness without an element of agency? I resign myself to your perimeter.

    Thanks for reminding me about this convo! I almost ended up writing a novel-length comment and ended up blogging about it instead.

    I’ve got links to my sources (a couple of videos) in there, too. You should check ’em out!

    Hey! I didn’t know you had this site. I like it a lot!
    for some reason I can’t comment on your posts, although I have a few things to say about Gilbert’s argument. I will pick your brain about it later :)

    I like the whole hosteling-in-your-own-city idea. I might just do it one day, but I’ll take on a totally different identity and pretend I’ve never been to Vancouver ;) Seems more fun that way.

    Whoa, thanks for the headsup about the comments problem. I’ve just fixed it so go ahead and give Gilbert what he’s got comin’ (-;
