I think about thinking about time. I believe in aesthetic counterbalances. I try to connect people and ideas at just the right moment. I advise a few institutions. I meditate. I always seem to find what I need. I believe deep conversation is underappreciated as an improvisational genre of art. I like parties. I also like solitude. I think futurists underinvest in tradition. I think engineers underinvest in mystery. I think humans underinvest in optimism. I plan to overinvest in books and friends and wild theories about poetry and metaphysics.
