I called this blog Ruminations. When cows chew and chew and chew on grass, it’s called ruminating. This is a question I’ve been chewing on for a long time: What does it mean to be yourself? Can we ever really be free?
These things move within you as lights and shadows in pairs that cling.
And when the shadow fades and is no more, the light that lingers becomes a shadow to another light.
And thus your freedom, when it loses its fetters, becomes itself the fetter of a greater freedom.
– Kahlil Gibran: The Prophet, On Freedom
